  • 11/18/15--17:06: Ox Team for Sale
  • Selling our team of Oxen - the most sustainable of draft animals!
    Assuming you have reasonable pastures, oxen do not require additional feed unless you are working them very, very hard. Even in winter, this team only gets a little supplemental grass hay. There’s a reason oxen brought the pioneers west...oxen are just tougher, and much better at thriving on marginal pastures than horses. Most of the world's food is still grown with draft power and oxen are far-and-away the most common draft animals. For sale is our team of Jersey steers. Both were bottle fed and started in yoke before 2 months. I've gotten them up through ground driving with light loads and started them on light farm implements (harrow) and carts. Selling them because I just don't have time to continue working them up right now. Price negotiable for the right operation that will continue their training and work with them daily. Just don't want to see them go to the beef sale barn. Very well mannered in yoke. Our 8 year-old daughter can drive them! They stand easily, including for hoof trimming. One has been ridden several times. Please call for more information or see our website: www.commontreasuryfarm.com 541-486-4085
