Welcome

to The Anderson LT Livestock website.



We raise American Aberdeen Cattle
and
Babydoll Southdown Sheep.

Covid was a problem this spring.
Marylou got it and spent time in hospital.
She is home, but not able to do what she wants and needs to.
She was quarantined through April 25.
Hopefully things will get better soon.
The virus made us need to change things.
We have had to down size our already little farm.
We were in the middle of lambing season when Covid hit.
We had some really beautiful lambs,
all available for sale were sold.
We sold our black ram, Jacob
to a family who moved to Rolla, Missouri
from New Jersey.
We also had to send Caedmon's black
ram lamb, Kintore to fill an order.
That left us without a black sire for
November 2021 breeding season.
So. . . We are bought a new black RR ram
from Iowa. We bought Drake from Jolyn Meehan.
He was bred by Harland's Top of the Town Downs.




OUR LAMB RESERVATIONS LIST IS FULL FOR 2021!

American Aberdeens!
UNTIL COVID HIT,
Our registered Aberdeens included Dixie and her progeny,
NutMeg, had bull calf 2021; Pepper had heifer calf, Sage,
and a Fullblood heifer, Emerald had a nice fullblood bull calf we are still
debating if we will use for our new herd sire. . .
Dixie's first calf, Marjoram recently died,
but she gave us a beautiful little cow cow we call Coriander.
Coriander's bull calf from 2020 will be put in the freezer in 2022.
Coriander had a nice reddish heifer calf in May
we are calling Cinnamon.


We bought a registered fullblood American Aberdeen bull,
Rambling Red we call "Red Bull".
He did a great job for us.
Marjoram, NutMeg and Pepper's calves
were steered last year, and we have
already put meat from NutMeg's
calves in the freezer.
With the difficulty finding a butcher,
we had to travel 2 hours both ways to
get out meat processed. We will have
2 more processed mid October.

February 20th, 2021 Dixie had a nice heifer calf.
Dixie and NutMeg had really nice 2019 calves sired by him.

Covid really hit us hard. We got so weak. It was
difficult to do thd chores, and then about the same
time Marylou was in hospital with covid, Terry had
some stress in his back muscles that restricted his
movement for a while.

We made the difficult decision to sell a percentage
of Ramblin Red, and cut our cow herd down to 2 cows.
We decided to sell all but Coriander and Pepper.
It was a pretty emotionally stressful day when the
trailer came to pick up Dixie and NutMeg and their
calves. But is what had to happen.
We then had an offer on Emerald if we could haul
her to her new home. We agreed.
When we hauled Red Bull to his new home in
Tennessee, a drunk driver rear-ended us just a mile
from our destination, totally destroyed the trailer,
knocked it over backwards, tore up the floor, and
disengaged the center gate.
Miraculously, when I got back to where the
trailer was laying on it's side, looked inside,
and Red Bull was standing, looking a bit confused.
The end gate had to be cut off in order to get the
bull out safely when his new caretaker arrived and
backed his trailer up to ours, emergencyworkers
and sherriff personnel all helped to get the bull from
one trailer to the other. Red bull was amazing. He
even started his new job the very next morning.
Pretty good for a bull that was liberally thrown
upside down!
But we are left without a trailer as we wait for
a settlement from the drunk driver's insurance.
We were supposedto deluver Emerald to her new
home in July, but we are still waiting for a
settlement in order to get a replacement trailer and
Chris to get his pickup repaired. Terry ended up
with a broken 7th rib from the impact.
I, like Red Bull, was uninjured.

LT CHICKENS


We have had chickens in the past, but
we have decided it is time to raise
chickens to sell to local hobby farmers,
and have enough laying hens to sell
eggs to pay for their feed.
We are getting 8, possibly 10 breeds.
Click on the link to check out our future plans.
Our chicks are arriving March 4, 2021!

LT EQUINES

We have had a Haflinger mare, a few
quarter horses, and ponies throughout the years.
Our Welsh Mountain Pony, Maggie Mae
died shortly after she had her last foal
that we named Dolly. We now have Dottie,
who was sired by our original mini stud,
McGiver, and out of Maggie Mae
She has a little colt Dani Lou named Sparky.
In August of 2020 we sold our shetland
stud, Teddy, and Dolly. We also sold a little stud, and last
year's filly, both out of Dottie.
We sold Jack, our faithful old mini jack.
They all went to our old neighbors in Louisburg,
and we were delighted to see the kids working
with the ponies and Jack, getting them
broke and ready for either selling or keeping
for their family. Our mini donkeys are Jill, and Jane.
We will be keeping Jane, Jill, Dottie and Sparky
(soon to be a gelding), and we do not intend to
raise any more ponies or donkeys.
Throughout the years we have sold
four little jacks and two jennies.

Jane, Jill, and Dottie might be having 2021 foals
that will be offered for sale.
This brings our equine buisness to an end.
