We have purchased a new family business. We now own Shivers and Shakes in Andalusia, IL. Due to the time commitment of this new enterprise, we have the need to cut back. We still offer fully licensed and hormone free Hereford Beef and Hampshire Lamb. If you are interested in cuts or quarters, please call Jay at 3O9.738.O8II. Last year, we ran out of quarters so please call and I can put you on the list. I anticipate steers being ready around the end of May and throughout the summer. Lambs can be purchased whole or packaged. In the very near future, we plan to offer Big Oak Farm Beef and Lamb for retail sales at Shivers and Shakes.

Please continue to visit this page for updates along with the Shivers and Shakes web page along with the Shivers and Shakes Facebook Page!

We plan to continue to support the QC Farmers Market and hope you do as well. Stop down at Trinity Hospital in Moline on Saturday mornings and purchase from the only locally grown market in the Quad Cities.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Bohnsack’s and Big Oak Farm.

Where did the year 2012 go?

Monday, May 21st, 2012

We are cutting back. I would not consider any of these cull cattle, but quality. I have decided it is time to slow down a little and would like to get my herd back down to a manageable size. All cattle are for sale – for a price. I have put together a list of some of the heifers and bred cattle Most of the cattle listed have been shown. Everything has been worked and is up to date on shots and vaccinations.

This is an updated picture of the hereford baby in the picture below. This picture was taken by my son-in-law Nathan while they were “checking the cows” ie-riding ATV’s.

New babies have been arriving pretty regularly this month. So far we have better than 100% calving rate with one set if twins. The weather has been perfect for calving (and any other outdoor activity).
