The Miracle of Gus
Sit back and enjoy the amazing story about a tiny calf named Gus. As you read this story, you will learn how God performs miracles on even the smallest of his beautiful creatures.
The Life of Gus
With a broken front leg, Gus finds the strength within himself to walk with his remaining three legs. He discovers the comfort of a barn cat named Smokey. With the love from his keeper, Gus realizes when you know the love of others, you can get through anything in life.
The Purpose of Gus
Being smaller than the other calves, Gus filled his days with grazing alone. But with the help of his keeper, Gus learned the very thing that made him different was the very thing that made him special.
LSU OPEN HOUSE
Gus will be at the LSU open house from 3:30. Come by and get a selfie with Gus.
We have calves due Jan 2018. Let us know if you want to get on our waiting list.

SMALL = LESS POOP =LESS WORK TO MAINTAIN
SMALL = SHORTER MUSCLES = TENDER MEAT
SMALL = LESS ACREAGE NEEDED (2 MINIATURES PER ACRE)
SMALL = LESS FENCE
SMALL HERD = REDUCTION IN PROPERTY TAXES
SMALL COW = KID FRIENDLY
Where It All Began
In 2015 I was surfing the internet and instantly fell in love with a cow and calf for sale in Texas. One week later, I became the proud owner of my first Miniature Hereford cow and calf. We are proud to be one of the original registered Hereford farms in Louisiana. Each of our breeding stock is considered a part of our family. Fed twice a day, provided the best grass available, brushed routinely and stalled at the slightest hint of bad weather, our cows are truly spoiled to say the least. Come by to experience Oak Mound Farm for yourself!
MEET GRACIE AND MARTHA
We want to encourage those landowners with small tracts of land that they can own cattle just like the large landowners. The beauty of this breed is that they require less space, eat less and are extremely gentle.
