People are no longer putting up with Commercial Beef practices. The only way to guarantee your food is healthy is to "Know your farmer and to Know your food", Here at Louderbranch Farms we believe that it is very important to “Know your Farmer Know your Food” but it is equally important for the farmer to know their customer.
Term Grass Fed
The term "Grass Fed" is not clearly defined by most people. The term Grass Fed doesn't necessarily mean that the cow was pasture raised. Not all grass fed cows are free to graze outdoors and enjoy their life as a cow. Grass fed cows eat mostly grass while grain fed eat mostly a diet that is based on corn and soy and is unnatural.
Researchers say that grass fed cattle contains less total fat than grain fed beef. That means grass fed beef contains fewer calories. They also contain more Vitamin E and antioxidants.
At The Farm
Here at Louderbranch Farms our calves are born in the pasture. They drink milk from their mama. They are allowed to roam free and play with the other calves. They eat grass and other plants that they find in their dining room pasture. They are allowed to forage from birth until harvest. Our cattle are never given antibiotics or growth hormones. We do treat sick animals but they are pulled out of production rotation.
Our cows are given very little grain. The only reason they are given any is to train them to a bucket. That way if they get out we can handle them and get them back up fairly easy.
