Blight Farms Inc.

Blight Farms is a family owned cattle feeding and cash crop operation. Bill and Fran started the farm in 1965 when they bought dairy steer calves to feed. Since then, two of their sons have taken over the farm along with their families.

How do you care for the animals on your farm?

We hold a strict feeding schedule and assure that clean water is available at all times. Well cared for animals perform better, so it’s imperative that we properly care for the livestock. Additionally, a vaccination program, parasite control and nutrition are the cornerstone of healthy animals. When one does get sick, we separate it out and treat according to the symptoms shown.

How do you care for the environment?

Blight Farms became MAEAP (Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program) verified shortly after the program was launched. Environmental care is a part of any good management program and we utilized MAEAP to ensure that we were not missing anything.

What do your cattle eat?

We work with a cattle nutritionist to ensure that every bite the animal eats is properly balanced and meeting their needs. We feed a diet composed of earlage, distillers feed and supplements.

What is your family’s favorite beef meal?

Our favorite meal is a T-bone steak fresh off the grill.
