I own TNT Farm in Butler Illinois. A 5th generation family livestock farm.
Over the years I have tried multiple breeds of cattle searching for the perfect fit for fescue, hot summers, bitter cold winter, low input, high output, all in a moderate frame with a calm disposition.
I found exactly that in South Poll cattle. Great mothers, calm dispositions, fescue tollerant, fly tolerant & they handle the weather extremely well.
I run a herd of Kiko's meat goats with my cattle herd. Its been a winning combination
