Our Cattle Break Their Own Ice
The Little Bluestem Eisbreaker™ solves winter. No more need to get out to break ice and refill the stock tank on frigid winter days. If your cattle have enough feed available for the day, they’re covered.
Little Bluestem Black Angus™ have learned to break their own ice in our open, unheated stock tank using the Little Bluestem Eisbreaker™ . They can all drink from an open tank like they prefer, not little heated bowls. Alternatively, build your own cow powered water pump.
The Little Bluestem Eisbreaker™ is independent of any external energy source. This system requires $0 per month to operate. It does not require geothermal, solar, wind, battery or electrical energy. The cows do all the work, including turning on and off the pump.
Once the younger heifers in our herd master the Little Bluestem Eisbreaker™, we will make those cattle available, along with the Little Bluestem Eisbreaker™, to other producers. This is a system we expect the cows in any herd to be able to master the way our cattle have done, in “follow-the-leader” fashion. (bred cow/ bred heifer prices)
The heifers we will make available for purchase will have already mastered the device through months of practice. They will show the cattle in your herd how to operate it. (contact information)
Other Products in the Pipeline:
Little Bluestem Black Angus™ Fluorescent Ear Tags: Black cows on the roadway at night can present a real threat to the health and safety of motorists. It doesn’t matter how good your fences are if a gate gets left open. In most states, if the owner of the cattle does everything possible to mitigate a worst-case disaster, the courts will take that into account. The real purpose of the tags though, is to prevent accidents from occurring in the first place. Our reflective ear tags are in beta plus. Please let us know if you would like to participate.
Little Bluestem Black Angus™ Freeze Branding System: Freeze branding has been around more than 50 years, but many ranchers have had difficulty obtaining consistent results. We spent several months in testing before applying our first brand. Then, after finally developing a system that gave consistent results with our own brand, we went to work developing a system with broad application. Please contact us if you are interested in giving it a try.
