How we raise our beef? Why Do We Grain Finish?

by Lanea Donahoo 27 Mar 2024

Welcome to our world of beef farming, where flavor and care intertwine to create a culinary experience like no other. Let's dive into how we raise our beef and why we choose to grain finish.

Our journey begins in the picturesque San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado, where our cattle roam freely in the high elevations during the summer and fall months. They graze on native grasses and drink from mountain springs, soaking up the pristine beauty of their surroundings. As the seasons shift, we move them to lower ranges where they enjoy a mix of irrigated pasture grass and native forage, all while under our watchful eye.

But what sets our beef apart is our grain finishing process. For 90 days before harvest, our steers graze on lush irrigated pastures and receive a daily ration of grain. This regimen not only enhances the flavor and tenderness of the meat but also creates a calm environment for the animals. With familiarity comes ease – our steers load into the trailer without fuss, free from the stress. 

Now, you might wonder why we choose to grain finish. In a few words: flavor and consistency. By carefully controlling their diet and environment, we ensure that every cut of beef delivers the same superior quality and marbling that our customers love. And rest assured, we're not the typical concentrated animal grain feeding operations (CAFO). Our steers still enjoy the freedom to roam and choose their feeding times, making for a happier, healthier herd.

In the end, it's all about balance. Our grain finishing technique allows us to achieve the perfect blend of flavor, tenderness, and sustainability. We like to think of ourselves as "farm beef" producers, bridging the gap between tradition and innovation. So come join us on this delicious journey – your taste buds will thank you.
