Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort.”

INTRODUCTION

Sagewerk Farms was created to satisfy a desire to improve the quality of AKC, registered European Rottweilers and registered Belted Galloway cattle all with certified and documented lineage. The approach was simple: Source, procure, nurture, and produce high quality, healthy, registered, champion blood lines for each breed.

ROTTWEILERS

Sagewerk Farms was founded in 2015 with our first acquisition of a male European Rottweiler puppy who has a AKC champion sire for a father and a AKC champion dam as his mother. His name is Maximus (aka: Max). Three female European Rottweilers with AKC champion fathers and AKC champion mothers were later purchased at different times to further lay a solid foundation for our AKC European Rottweiler stock.

Our infrastructure, as it relates to raising AKC, registered European Rottweilers finally crossed the finish line when we built a heated and cooled facility.  “The Dawg House” was built to ensure our family members are in a clean and comfortable environment throughout the year ensuring their health and quality.

BELTED GALLOWAYS

In the fall of 2017, we started interviewing several breeders to start our herd of Registered, Belted Galloways (aka: Belties and/or Oreo Cows). We finally found a herd that could lay the foundation for this gentle and beautiful breed. The couple raised their herd for over 20 years with the same attention to detail we wanted to raise our herd. This couple was also at a time where it was important to them that the entire herd stayed together. 2 bulls (Not related to the herd), 5 cows, 4 heifers, and 1 bull calf arrived at Sagewerk Farms. Approximately 2-4 months later, we were blessed to have 4 healthy calves born at our farm. We would later add 6 more registered Belted Galloway heifers in the fall of 2018.

Our infrastructure as it relates to raising registered Belted Galloways includes (4) 25acre pastures for rotational grazing which includes a centralized well which supplies water troughs for each pasture, (4) Safety areas, (2) hay barns, 2 ponds, and of course plenty of Max Q fescue grass. We also have 3 Jenny’s and 1 Johnny which provide protection for all of our Belted Galloways.

In a digital world, filled with instant gratification, instant messaging, and instant everything else, Sagewerk Farms prides itself on taking a step back to ensure that are actions follow our words.  We believe our success will be measured by our attention to detail, quality practices, and the overall health of our animals.
