The heat is on...

Posted 7/30/2017 1:52pm by Ralph Mitchell.

Greetings Wild Type Ranch customers...

Things are sure heating up, with triple digit temps. Rain, if it does happen, is increasingly unlikely to make too much of a difference to the drying evident on the pastures, although we might be lucky later this week with precipitation from some storm activity and cooler temperatures. Fingers crossed!

Happily we are in good shape with good stands of grass in our pastures, and have hay available if there is a need to add a little more feed. This year's crop of calves are growing beautifully, they look happy and content, despite the heat. Having clean water available, and lots of shade is the key here. They rest up during the heat, then graze when it is cooler.

Every year Ralph returns to Australia to spend time with his two sons and two grand-children. This year is no different, and he will be away from the 10th of September, through much of October. As he won't be here to take a harvest animal in to the processors, we can't make a custom-cut half available in September. We will have eighths and quarters available.

Because of this, we have opened up August as an opportunity for you to stock up with beef. Eighths, quarters and a half are all available, along with a few ten-packs of ground beef, Variety and Value packs, and a few other individual items available with a beef order.

We have 'bags of bones' and farm fresh free-range yard eggs and a few other items such as summer sausage, pan sausage and liver, but these will only be available to those who make a beef order, as we can't run a delivery vehicle from the ranch for small orders. When you place your order, you'll see an "Extras" box there to choose from.

For those who wish to purchase any of these other items without a beef purchase, the issue is delivery, not the purchase, so please email us here at, let us know your needs, and we'll try our best to accommodate you. You can always pick up from the ranch if you feel like visiting with us.

Thanks so much for your support!
