Do you need help raising cattle that produces higher-quality beef? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We have more than enough tips and expertise (not to mention equipment) to help you raise award-winning beef.

Pasture feeding

This is the best way to feed your cattle. Anything in the pasture (think silage and hay) is the most natural part of a cow’s diet, and therefore will produce the best-tasting natural beef. With the demand for organic, grown-behind-the-restaurant, hormone-free beef, pasture feeding all your cows is a great way to raise a healthy herd and get top dollar for them come slaughter.

Legume hay

This is another must-have for your herd. The properly grown and cut hay has a ton of protein – and legume hay contains more protein than grass hay. A good example of legume hay would be alfalfa. However, it’s more expensive than pasture feeding your herd. But if your goal is to raise beef with the highest possible ROI, hay might be your best bet.

Now, with hay, it’s important to note the following – do not feed dairy-quality alfalfa hay to your beef cattle. This type of hay is far too rich for what beef cattle need, and it’s almost the most expensive hay you can buy. And when you’re raising beef to sell at market, you want to keep costs as low as possible.

Raising a healthy, cost-effective beef herd isn’t the easiest thing to do, but it’s in your blood and you do it because the range is a better office than a cubicle. We understand that, and we’re here to help. If you have any questions, about either equipment or beef diet, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today.
