Steeple View Ranch LLC, raises Murray Grey cattle on our ranch located in the scenic Kettle Moraine area in Southeast Wisconsin. The Kettle Moraine landscape was formed 10,000 years ago by glacier. Towering above Steeple View Ranch is the beautiful Holy Hill Basilica church.
We have a closed herd of Murray Grey Beef Cattle with an emphasis on Australian grass fed genetics for tenderness and performance on grass. The Murray Grey Beef Cattle breed originated in Australia from a breeding of a Shorthorn female to an Angus Bull. Murray Greys have a heavy concentration of Angus DNA but have many unique characteristics that give a profitable advantage to commercial herds.
Our original cow herd was purchased from Eagle Run Ranch in California. Eagle Run was one of the most influential breeders in North America. The cows we purchased represented their six top performing cow families enabling us to carry on their successful breeding program here in the midwest. We are primarily a seed stock producer but do have grass finished beef for sale on animals not selected for our breeding program.
At Steeple View Ranch, we strive to protect the land and the environment that surrounds our beautiful ranch. We rotationally graze our cattle moving them to new grass daily. This is good for both our pastures and the environment. Rotational grazing results in more complete vegetative cover and improved soil structure allowing a higher percentage of the rainfall to infiltrate the soil where it can be used for plant growth rather than running off where it can result in soil erosion and sedimentation problems. Water quality improves as the pasture vegetation becomes denser and the soil conditions improve. A University of Wisconsin study showed that pastures are the best “crop” for reducing runoff, erosion, and phosphorus pollution over any other land use
