Hey Y'all!! This is our first post for the new and improved website. I'm going to use this section of the website to let you all know what is going on here at Ridgetop Farms!
If you have driven by the farm lately, you have noticed the dozer and the clean up we have been doing on the old Ferrell Farm. We purchased this farm in 2012 and have started it from scratch. I'd love to say that we started with a blank canvas but we had a lot of clean up to do first.
There were no usable fences or barns for storing hay or equipment, We have had to clean out old fence lines, remove 2 old barns that were fallen in, clean out tree lines and plant pastures. We have built a hay barn with the help of TAEP and also built a storage barn . Ramsey Fences installed all new fencing for us and installed waterers.
The farm has really grown and turned into a beautiful place over the last four years. We are really proud of the land and the animals.
We have been working on our breeding plan for this winter and next spring!! This past spring we AIed some beautiful heifers to On Target S22 and S100. I'm especially thrilled to see those new On Target S22 calves. We also bred another group to Revolution 4R. We have been purchasing and collecting some prized bull semen for this winter and next spring. We are really excited about the future calf crop's potential.
Well that's all for now! Stay tuned for more to come!
