Cheers to Chris S. - another Cow Pool in the books (or freezer)!

Another Successful Cow Pool!

Congratulations to Jennifer and Tom who just tipped their first steer using our new Cow Pool web app!  Jennifer and Tom are no strangers to Cow Pooling, having organized Cow Pools with us since 2011!  The new app made organizing a breeze!  Not to mention - they had so many people wanting "in" they started a second Cow Pool.  Nothing better than having a freezer full of our delicious and nutritious 100% grass fed beef.  I am sure their friends/fellow Cow Poolers will thank them!  To organize your own Cow Pool click here.
