Grainfed beef at Meat Co. are from cattle that have spent the early years of their lives roaming on pasture before moving on to a feedlot to fatten up on grain. This stage is known as backgrounding. Cattle with stronger qualities from better backgrounding will perform better given the same grain fed regime. On the feedlot, the feed mix typically consists of barley, corn and almond kernel shells just to name a few. The proportion of each component changes over the span of a cattle's feeding regime. Each stage of the cattle's feeding regime are tailored to produce a high eating quality beef.
All Breeds sold under our grain fed beef program are from Black Angus, Herefords, F1 Wagyu or 100% Full Blood Wagyu
