We raise Purebre & Fullblood Maine-Anjou cattle. We love our Maine-Anjou because of their willing attitude, great mothering instincts & their amazing beef. All of our cattle are worked slowly from horseback. We are very careful & quiet when handling all of our cattle. Raising Healthy HAPPY Beef Cattle is our passion!
All of our beef we sell was born here on our ranch. We don't ever use Hormones or growth supplements. We never feed any antibiotics.
If you want to know that your beef was raised in a VERY Happy & Healthy way take a look at us. All of our calves are born & raised on our pastures. We have two very separate groups of beef.
Our spring born calves are raised on grass & offered small amounts of grain after weaning from their mothers. These are our most popular Beef, which we market as Pastured Beef. A wonderful blend of flavor & tons of health benefits! These calves are always on fresh green pastures. Each day when they are moved to new pastures we offer them small amounts of grains to enhance the natural flavor of their beef. This beef receives less than 2% of their body weight each day in grains. This allows these calves to THRIVE in our cold Iowa Winters.
Our fall born calves are kept 100% grass fed. They are never ever offered any grains. If any accidental exposure to grain occurs; the animal is moved to the Pasture Raised Beef group. These are marketed as 100% Grass-Fed Beef. These calves are weaned in the spring & harvested in the fall. Our Grass-Fed Beef is extremely lean and tender! We harvest our Grass-Fed beef at 14-18 months. This results in a very tender and consistent product.
Each group is kept completely separate. Please look at individual product listings to show which type of beef you are purchasing. Availability of each type of beef is seasonal. Please call, text or email if you have any questions :)
