The Tkachyk Farm has been in the family since 1907.
The grass farm consists of a cow calf operation south of Sundown in southeastern Manitoba. All baby calves are born in May, when the rest of nature’s newborns arrive. Some animals are selected for the grass-fed program and marketed to a web site www.manitobabeef.com The natural beef are sold to meat shops in Steinbach and Winnipeg.
Cattle are placed into fresh grass approximately every 3 to 5 days (rotational grazing) during the summer months with the help of two border collies.
The cattle operation is a good fix for the land in the area. The animals helps keep the land healthy, with bale grazing feeds the soil for improved grass production for future grazing seasons.
