DANVILLE, Vt. (WCAX) - A Danville dairy has pivoted and is now becoming one of the largest beef herds of its kind in the state. Four Town Lowlines in Danville is a fifth-generation dairy farm that converted to beef. Their goal is to make sustainable and environmentally friendly choices to preserve the land and soil.

Lowline Angus cows have become known for being one of the best breeds for making the most meat off the least amount of grass and they do not require expensive grain.

The farm says in this economy that’s a huge help.

“The smaller, slower growth-rate animals do a lot better when it comes to feed efficiency in the sense that they don’t need corn or grain to get the same kind of marbling in the meat or the flavor. They get fat on, I like to say these things get fat on air because they do. It’s amazing how fat they get on just grass,” said Jake Boudreau, the owner of Four Town Lowlines.

The farm ships meat and cows all over the country and into Canada.
