There is a difference!

What's the Difference?

  • Our cattle are raised and finished on our irrigated open pastures with high protein, high sugar grass. As cow/calf pairs, weanlings, and yearlings they are on pasture their entire lives. Our cattle are fed NO grain, NO animal by-products, NO hormones, and NO antibiotics. Calves stay with their mothers until weaning at about 6 months of age. They are then grouped in a herd of age mates and rotate on pasture by themselves.

  • For those of our customers who recognize the benefits of super green live food, they will already know about the benefits of alfalfa and wheat grass juices. Humans need juicers to assimilate these super foods but for cattle this is their most nutritious natural diet and does not destroy their intestinal pH like feedlot diets. In fact, this diet brings them to peak health.

What is "Grass-ONLY"?

  • Grass fed beef simply means that the cattle were allowed to forage and graze for their own fresh food. They may be given close substitutes like alfalfa during the winter, but unlike grain-fed animals, the emphasis is still on providing the closest thing to a natural diet as possible.

  • In winter months when grass is not as plentiful, our cattle are supplemented with alfalfa or grass hay harvested and sun dried from our pastures during the peak growing season when we have an overabundance of grass. As live food enthusiasts know . . . sun drying maintains the enzymes in the grass. It is a wonderful supplement to our winter pastures, so our cattle can continue to graze and have plentiful supplies for their needs year-round.  
  • Our prime pastures contain lush super-food forage of sweet clover, alfalfa, and a variety of high-protein, high-sugar grasses. This produces the greatest amount of gain plus uniform tasting and incredibly healthy beef for humans.   
  • Our grass-fed cattle sold to you NEVER spend a second on a feedlot.



WHY is it Better?

  •  Grass-fed beef has been found to have a healthier ratio (:1) of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids. It often contains higher levels of antioxidants like vitamin E and A, too. Finally, cattle raised on grass are less likely to be given hormones and antibiotics,compared to conventional feedlot-factory beef.

  • We do not use antibiotics or hormones.



Why not use grain-fed?

Does it really make a difference? Is feeding grass better? How is this different from the industry standard of feeding corn? Essentially, the difference between grass fed and corn fed beef all boils down to one striking analogy: It’s the difference, for humans, between eating bags of spinach all day versus dense, calorie-rich cornflakes. The food that a cow eats can have a major effect on its meat’s nutrient composition and quality.

What do Cardiologists say?

What about heart health for humans?  What do cardiologists say?

"For most of human history, our ancestors only ate beef from animals raised on grass. Why? Because cows are designed to eat grass. But over the past 100 years, there’s been a major shift in our diet — and we’re just now starting to feel the impact of it. “Big Agriculture” started feeding livestock with grains to save money and increase production, but we’re the ones paying the price with our health.

Here’s why this change has been so harmful…
Grass-fed beef has a natural, balanced ratio of omega-6 fats to omega-3 fats — the ratio is about 3:1, which is perfect. But when your ratio is any higher than 4:1, you start getting serious health problems: heart disease, hypertension, arthritis, and more.

And the fact is, modern grain-fed beef can have a ratio of 20:1 or even higher! Grain-fed beef is deficient in healthy omega-3s but it’s loaded with omega-6s, which are extremely unhealthy at these high levels.

Grass-fed beef is healthier, it’s leaner, and it tastes better. I tell my patients to switch to grass-fed beef exclusively."...  Dr Steven Gundry, MD (For over thirty years, one of the world’s pre-eminent experts in heart surgery)
