Doris and Bill Sinclair own and operate WILL-DOR RANCH. Our goal is to produce premium quality GRASS FED Angus Beef and Beef Products for your enjoyment. As well as great tasting Farm Fresh Eggs, Pork, and Chicken. Whole Lamb is available upon request only usually in August and December. We recognize the importance of protecting the natural environment while producing our Angus Beef and Beef Products and all other products and act as stewards of the land. We actively practice regenerative farming using rotational grazing where cattle are moved from paddock to paddock eating and fertilizing as they go.
To be 'Grass Fed' cattle must never receive grain of any kind. Some folks think that the beef has a gamey taste and is dry and tough because it is fed only 'grass', but this is not the case. Our cattle are fed a ration of alfalfa pellets from birth, alfalfa is a type of grass very high in protein. This adds marbling to the meat as the animal grows and the meat does not have a gamey taste. Certainly the meat may taste differently from beef purchased in the store, but it is not strong tasting like wild game.
We believe we get out of our cattle and stock what we put into them. We take pride in our animals and they receive plenty of TLC making for some the the Best Grass Fed Angus Beef, Pork, Chicken and Eggs you will ever eat.

FARM FRESH EGGS
In May 2014 we began with the production of Farm Fresh Eggs and purchased ISA Brown Layers which are a hybrid cross between Rhode Island Whites and Rhode Island Reds. They are a friendly, productive bird known for having an excellent temperament. They lay throughout the year and can lay up to 300 eggs in that time.Eggs are a beautiful brown color. In general, they are a productive, low maintenance bird.
Today we use a bird called Lohmann Browns. They are also good layers and have a great temperament and produce a brown shelled egg.
Currently kept in loose housing.
Nesting boxes provided for laying. These are enclosed and birds enter and leave at will.
They are given oat straw inside their housing which is cleaned regularly.
Fed wheat blended with Vitamins A, D, and E for their health and yours too.
Also fed oyster shell (grit) to aid in digestion and to produce hard shells.
They have free choice water which is freshened daily.
They are given a bit of grass during the summer months.
Under no circumstances are they fed scraps or animal by-products.
Eggs are picked at least once daily. Cleaned and stored at a temperature of 6 degrees Celsius. (Maximum storage temperature is 7 degrees Celsius).
Bill sings to them to keep them happy and they sing back to him! Here he is with a pail of fresh picked eggs.
CHICKEN and PORK
All are fed naturally without the use of hormones or anitbiotics.
All have access to fresh water and are fed high quality grains.
All are kept in loose housing with protection from the elements in the form of a building and an area outside for exercise.
