Our Cows Have No Need For A Passport!
Southern Pastures has taken a stand right from inception that our cows would never be exported live – and we’ve stuck to it.
Our cows are uniquely free from world diseases like Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) and Mycoplasma Bovis. Feasting on a salad of nature’s greens, open air on pastures all year round keeps them happy and content. Cows are naturally herd animals, enjoying being outside amongst nature.
Through selective breeding cows can strengthen their traits and historical data can naturally encourage their strong traits to come to the forefront. No cows are genetically modified or altered using any deemed genetic engineering technique.
Each cow has an individual health plan covering history, live weight monitoring, a vaccination program as agreed by a veterinary treatment for worms and parasites if and when required, and on the rate occasion life giving antibiotics only prescribed and administered by a veterinary with strict adherence to the Stewardship program.
