Buy A Cow For Meat Colorado ##BEST##

Yes. Frozen meat is actually a higher quality product than fresh meat. The freeze/thaw process is an extension of dry aging. The freezing further concentrates the flavor while the thawing disrupts the sarcomere bonds, further tenderizing the meat.

Ordering grass-fed beef in bulk will require more than your average freezer. Depending on the size of your order, a chest freezer of some sort will be necessary to store your beef. A half cow is about 150 lbs of meat and can fit in a 6 cu ft freezer.

Full-flavored meat comes from animals that have lived long, full lives. Most beef is under two years old. Butter meat is aged to perfection at 5-7 years, giving the fats time to mature and bring out flavors that cannot be found in your typical beef.

From the farmers, truck drivers, processing plants, retailers, and customers, together we can continue to build a strong agricultural community through butter meat. Providing customers with our beef from Western New York fulfills this promise.

How are your cattle processed?Our cattle are processed at two, small family-owned facilities. This cannot be more different than the mammoth industrialized plants where most of the U.S. beef supply is processed. Our beef is butchered by hand by long term, conscientious employees. While our meat is processed in plants that handle other natural beef, ours is done on specific days, in a batch, so that there is no chance of co-mingling our beef with other beef. Each animal is tagged with an individual number that identifies them all the way through the process.Are your cattle ever fed grain?No, our cattle are grass fed and grass finished.Is your grass fed beef organic?Our beef is not certified organic. However, our cattle eat nothing but grasses and forbs, supplemented by hay and alfalfa pellets in the winter. Since almost all organic beef (and chicken and pork) are grain-fed in confinement, we maintain that eating our beef, raised humanely in open pastures, is a healthier choice, more natural, and better for the environment. As grass fed expert Jo Robinson states in her essay

..."The Lasater Ranch occupies about 30,000 acres of shortgrass prairie near the town of Matheson, Colorado. It is a profitable, working ranch that for half a century has not used pesticides, herbicides, poisons, or commercial fertilizers on the land, has not killed local predators such as coyotes, has not administered growth hormones, anabolic steroids, or antibiotics to the cattle. The Lasaters are by no means typical, but have worked hard to change how American beef is produced. Their philosophy of cattle ranching is based upon a simple tenet: "Nature is smart as hell."..."Before taking over the family ranch, Dale Lasater spent a year in Argentina as a Fulbright scholar, ran a feedlot company in Kansas, and managed cattle ranches in Texas, Florida, and New Mexico. He has come to believe that our industrialized system of cattle production cannot be sustained. Rising grain prices may someday hit ranchers and feelots hard. More importantly, Lasater finds it hard to justify feeding millions of tons of precious grain to American cattle while elsewhere in the world people starve."..."Dale Lasater recently set up a company to sell organic, free-range, grass-fed beef. None of the cattle used in Lasater Grasslands Beef spent any time in a feedlot. The meat is much lower in fat than grain-fed beef, and has a much stronger, more distinctive flavor. Lasater says that most Americans have forgotten what real beef tastes like. "

And currently in Colorado, a person who owns cattle, hogs, sheep, bison, goats or rabbits can have the animal slaughtered and share that meat with family and friends without it needing to be butchered in a USDA-inspected plant.

The bill would make it clear that any consumer in Colorado can get meat this way as long as they buy a share in the animal while it is still alive. The person who buys a share cannot sell the meat to someone else.

With your live animal purchase, we arrange the slaughter or harvest of the animal on our Trabuco Ranch, transportation to a local family butcher for processing, and communicate with the butcher on your behalf. Your meat will be hung and dry-aged for 25-28 days to allow natural enzymes to tenderize and enhance the flavor. Our local butcher will then call you and provide you with options for meat cuts (quantity of steaks, hamburger etc.). Your meat will then be custom cut and wrapped to your order. Once your meat is chilled, it is ready for you to pick up in Chino, CA. We can't ship whole/half cow orders as they are live animal purchases and not USDA processed.

The purchase dates we provide are an estimate and the actual time you will receive your meat may vary by a month or more. We process our animals when they have gained adequate weight and are fat enough. Weight gain and fat gain can be affected by climate and the amount of green grass available. During longer hot seasons, the cattle do not eat as much and gain less. This can extend the amount of time to get your whole/half cow ready. We never supplement with any grains to speed up this process and instead rely only on nature. Should you have any questions about the date you will receive your whole/half cow, we are always available to provide you with updates.

A deposit of $750 for a half cow and $1500 for a whole animal. The balance of the live animal purchase is due once the animal is slaughtered. You'll pay the butcher separately for the aging, cutting, wrapping, and freezing when you pick up your meat. Please note: this is a live animal purchase, non USDA processed, and can't be shipped.

We ordered a half-cow and were THRILLED with our purchase! Not only do we love supporting local ranchers, but the meat is high-quality, organic, grass-fed, and delicious! My (keto) heart is very happy and our freezer is full! We will definitely be back.

From ordering, to getting my questions answered by the rancher Mr. Fitzpatrick to picking up our meat, we couldn't be more happier. We split a half cow 3 ways and we all got so much meat, delicious meat. Thank you so much, we will definitely order again.

In Greeley the Monfort family is synonymous with beef. Between the end of World War I and the 1970s, company founder Warren Monfort built a vast beef empire that began with large feedlots and ended with an innovative, streamlined meatpacking process. The wealthy rancher partnered with and eventually bought out Capital Packing to open a large packaging facility for which his herds were the primary supplier. In 1969 Capital Packing processed more than 300,000 cattle and grossed more than $150 million.

Our aim is to serve those customers who like to stock their freezers, to do this to the best of our abilities so that they will be repeat customers, and to attract new customers because of our best efforts. This philosophy along with over 30 years of service makes HOLY COW Packing Plant one of the premier meat processors in Western Colorado.

Storage begins one month from the processing date. Pricing for storage is $100.00/month. All meat packaging is double wrapped with plastic and freezer paper. Vacuum sealing upon request at an additional charge of $85.00. Prices subject to change without notice.

The factory production of mass amounts of meat is proven to take a toll on our climate and land due to overgrazing, methane emissions, and fossil fuel use. But how does the meat industry contribute to the waste problem? Waste from this industry is much massive and should be addressed.

I purchased this cut because I wanted to bump up my order to get the free shipping. Great decision. I've never smoked this before and I decided to cook it on my Pit Barrel Cooker. It turned out so good, it was like the perfect union of the flat and point meat on a brisket. This will be my go-to meat when I want to impress people. Great cut and quality. Thank you.

RLTW with KC Cattle Company. I won a 8lbs tomahawk in the Veterans Day giveaway. It was the best meat to ever touch my grill. Looking forward to trying it all! Just ordered 5 packs of both the brats and world famous hotdogs. Semper Fi

Beef and eggs can only be purchased through a CSA membership at Jodar Farms and is offered in both winter and summer. Pork packages are also available; these offer whole hog, half hog and custom meat bundles.

This family-owned ranch began when the Stahla family learned just how much better grass-fed meat can taste. After purchasing their Livermore ranch just a few years ago, they got to taste the results for themselves and now offer it to customers throughout the region. Sold by the half, the quarter and by individual cuts, this is one of the few places you can pick and choose your cuts of grass-fed, Colorado grown beef. Check out the price list here.

This small, family-owned farm is an educational passion-project for this Berthoud family. They began in the summer of 2007 with the intent of learning to sustain themselves off the land and have since raised lamb, chickens, ducks and turkeys for both eggs and meat, gotten plenty of dirt under their fingernails, and created a CSA program to share their harvests with the community. Though they occasionally raise one or two other animals as well, you can most often find cuts and organs of lamb, turkey and chicken as well as chicken and duck eggs. Learn how to buy here.

Separate the shoulders, placing them hide-down on a stump or log or anything that would keep the meat clean. The front quarters are very straight-forward with no difficult bone separation or cutting. The rear quarters are a bit more complex.

Place the four quarters in individual game bags and the loose meat in a fifth bag. Be sure to attach the harvest tag to one of the quarters before you bag it, then mark the bag in some way so you can easily find which contains the tag if you are asked to produce it. 041b061a72
