Cattle farming is currently in the third generation of the Brown family at Kitty Kurtis Farms in Michigan. Learn more about how they care for their livestock while operating two different farm locations in the state.
In 1940 Curtis M. Brown purchased farmland in Tecumseh, MI to begin the family farm. Later in 1959, Brown expanded the farm and purchased property in Harrison, MI. Today, the third generation of the family is operating both locations with a cow-calf herd in Harrison and a feedlot in Tecumseh.
How do you care for the environment?
Kitty Kurtis Farm was the first farm in Clare County to become verified by the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program in 2005. The Browns use this program to keep them environmentally accountable and up-to-date with best practices.
We consult our veterinarian regularly to ensure that we are current with our vaccination programs and using the best practices for our cattle. Kitty Kurtis Farms choose to use antibiotics only to treat cattle when they are sick, following all veterinary instructions to provide safe beef. Additionally, they consult a nutritionist to guarantee that all of the cattle fulfill their nutritional needs.
Our favorite is Mongolian Beef.
