    Our cattle are 80% grass-fed as there are times throughout the year that we may supplement in order to keep them in good body condition.

  • Are they Finished?
    Yes, we finish our cattle on a forage/grain diet for 120 to 160 days. This diet is free from any antibiotics or hormones. We finish our cattle this way so that they can marble consistently and have a better flavor.
