We will be butchering Sydney later this month. She is a 3+ year old 1/2 Highland and 1/2 Dexter cow. She has been grass feed her whole life except grain when she was pregnant/initially nursing and grain and apple pressings this last month.
She has had a good cow life (although she would prefer more grain, she tells us all the time) and she will have a humane death. We are planning on keeping 1/2 of her meat and selling the other half. We expect she will produce low fat beef, at least partially due to her Highland heritage.
