Without our animals, we couldn't do what we do. So we'd like you to meet some of the amazing livestock that call Windy Meadow Farms home and have helped build our herds.
Our animals give us a deep appreciation for each new day as we witness the cycle of life repeated each year on our farm.
Our Belties have been shown at various shows, including the Indiana State Fair, the Indiana Jr. Beef Cattle Association circuit, and NAILE. With the addition of some promising genetics, we are excited about the future of our breeding program!
Meet our newest addition, Eckelman's Ferdinand. USD45620-B, a son of Sunnybrook Soprano x Eckelman's Dora. Ferd is a sweetie and a looker. Built with enough muscle, balance and eye appeal, we are excited for his future here!
Sunnybrook Brody USD41465-B is a product of Countyline Connor (a Platinum Lifetime bull) x Sunnybrook Jacy. While he has now moved on to a new herd, we continue to have his influence here through a few of his daughters and our 2021 NAILE Jr. Champion, Windy Meadow Diva
We are ecstatic to have a young female of this caliber born right here on our farm. Fiesta was Grand Champion heifer at the 2019 National Belted Galloway Jr. Show at NAILE. She is sired by the legendary Countyline Connor and out of Stonesthrow Ubetcha, a proven Platinum Lifetime cow that remains productive in her golden years. Fiesta has a bright future and we are thrilled to have her here at our farm.
Ubetcha, known to us at "Bet", is a Platinum Lifetime award winner. She has had tremendous success in the show ring as well as her offspring. Bet is still going strong at 11 yrs old and we are thrilled to have recently gotten another heifer calf from her, Windy Meadow Gwyneth. (sired by Sunnybrook Brody) She has great maternal instincts and adds remarkable frame size.
Eclipse was added in 2018, and we are excited for what she can bring to the plate. Sired by Sunnybrook Eastwood, (a son of Ubetcha) out of Sunnybrook Legacy, this gal has some exciting genetics to offer.
A Sunnybrook Brody daughter, Windy Meadow Diva has all the depth, and maternal value you could ask for in a brood cow. Her dam has never needed calving assistance, and usually just shows up at the barn one day with calf in tow. Diva is expecting her first calf this spring and we are thrilled to see what she adds to our herd.
From Silver Cuckoo Marans to Rhode Island Reds, our hens are a source of free range fresh eggs and a little feathered friendship!
A sweet stray kitty that "adopted" us....S'mores now has a forever home with us and intimidates the mice around our barn!
