Back Counrty Beef - Web
Raised at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, our animals harvest the sun by
eating a variety of natural grasses and vitamin rich legumes. We run our animals on open lands year round, using planned grazing techniques, mimicking
nature's natural dynamics - changing territories frequently to allow extended grassland recovery. As our own
economic prosperity comes from our land's ecological vibrancy and diversity, we've dedicated ourselves to
monitor and document the environmental functions of our landscape habitat - nutrient and water cycling,
biotic integrity and energy flow.
Prescott Ranches - Web
At Prescott Ranches, natural processing simply means this, no antibiotics, no growth hormone, no implants, and
no preservatives. Natural is important to us. Our animals are raised on the range. They are Free Ranging in every
sense of the phrase. Our grass/grain fed cattle have access to pasture every day of their lives. We do provide a
grain supplement that increases, as they get older, but they are always in the pasture. We aim to provide the most
natural relaxed setting that could ever be provided. These animals are slaughtered on order, at about twenty-eight
months of age. As a result of their genetics they typically finish with a grade of prime.
