100% Grass-Fed Beef

Our cows are fed only grass or hay and never grain of any kind. We use a rotational grazing system that gives our cattle a lush strip of juicy, green grass each day, while allowing the grass ahead time to grow and the grass behind time to rest and recuperate. 

 

Cattle on a pasture are happier, healthier and cleaner animals. Grazing is truly the only way to grow "green", clean beef.

Grass-Fed to Finish

►What truly is grass-fed beef? 

Cattle that have been allowed to graze grasses, legumes, forbes or hay their entire lives.  Other than Mama's milk, they have never known any other food.

 

Unfortunately, "grass-fed" is a term that is very popular today and therefore subject to abuse.  Much so called "grass-fed" beef is topped off with corn at the end of the day or started life as truly grass-fed but is "finished" with corn as harvest approaches.

 

Grassfed beef is truly an art.  It's not an easy or simple thing to master.  (However, it is very possible.)  With today's consumer demand for grass-fed beef out pacing supply, it becomes very tempting to fudge on principles and feed "just a little" corn.

 

►Why is "just a little" corn not acceptable?

  1. Corn renders all health benefits of grass-fed beef null and void.  Any corn at all will cause the CLA (cancer fighting properties) count to plummet.  It will also destroy the balance of omega 3 & 6 fatty acids (think heart-healthy).

  2. Corn relies on fossil fuel to grow, harvest, store and feed.  Cattle truly are the ultimate "energy efficient machine" capable of harvesting, hauling, and storing all their own food, as well as hauling and spreading their own fertilizer.  They are very efficient solar power collectors, able to grow and fatten on about 30% of what they eat; the other 70% is deposited right back into the soil "bank" as fertilizer.

  3. We've all heard "you are what you eat"...Well, so is a cow!  Corn makes a cow fat fast—translate that to you, and you'll see why it's not a good idea to eat corn-fed beef!  Corn changes the animal's fat structure to the kind of fat that makes us fat!  ("Good" fat never makes us fat!)

  4. Cattle are a ruminant animal designed by God with a 4 part digestive system.  A composting vat, if you will, that does a great job if left to do what it's designed to do.  However, if you put corn into a fermentation vat, you get alcohol!  Imagine living with an alcohol cooker in your stomach!  Not conducive to a good immune system at all.  Nor is it conducive to animal comfort.  I've heard it said, "But, cows love corn."  I say, "Well sure, but people love sugar—that doesn't make it good for you, does it?!"  Why make an animal feel that way just for the sake of growing it out quicker or easier?

In the words of Wendell Berry: “I dislike the thought that some animal has been made miserable to feed me. If I am going to eat meat, I want it to be from an animal that has lived a pleasant, uncrowded life outdoors, on bountiful pasture, with good water nearby and trees for shade.”

In keeping with this standard, our goal is to serve your family and ours a nutrient dense, juicy, tender and flavorful beef.
