How old are the cattle when they are butchered?
Most of the grain finished cattle range from 12 mos - 18mos depending on the individual animal and what type of finished product we are trying to achieve.
What are the grain finished cattle fed?
I have spent many hours on calls and in conversations with nutritionists over the years trying to formulate and improve many different feeds to offer the cattle to finish while implementing my personal principle that "cattle shouldnt eat anything in a feed they cant eat off of the ground".
How long does the meat dry age?
The processor we use most often will age the beef for a minimum 10 days up to 14-16 days.
Do we get attatched to the animals?
Unequivocally, yes, but that is a part of the world. I work hard with these animals to get them to produce the type of product we're after. It is my belief that cattle are on this planet to provide food and we just try to help them be the best food they can.
