Sustainability
Raising cattle on pasture uses much less fossil fuels that feedlot cattle. There is no fertilizer use because the manure of the grazing animal does it for us. This along with the solar power of the sun and waters of the river keep the grasses green. Transport of the animals to the facility is only one hour; compared with shipping cattle to distant feedlots. The feeding of corn, grain or soy requires fossil-fuel fertilizers, shipping, pesticides and major equipment. The Off Family raises their own hay to feed their cattle. All this is significant in reducing the carbon foot print.

Nutrition
One of the most noticeable differences between grain-fed and grass-fed beef is that the fat color is significantly more yellow in grass-fed beef. This is due to the anti-oxidant, beta-carotene which is incorporated into the fat from the cattle grazing on grass. Other nutritional benefits of grass-fed beef are the high Vitamin E, Omega-3:Omega 6 fatty acids ratio and “conjugated linoleic acid” or CLA’s content. These properties are linked to healthy brain function, lowering blood pressure, fighting depression and reducing cancer. Grass-fed beef also has 1/2 the saturated fat as grain-fed beef and rivals the fat content of poultry and wild game. Calorie per calorie, lean beef is one of the most nutrient rich foods.

Happy Cows
We have four third party verified animal welfare and health certifications: GAP level 4Never Ever 3 Verified Natural(No Antibiotics administered; No Hormones administered; and No Animal By-products fed). Source and Age Verified, and Non-Hormone Treated Cattle. See our Home page for more information. The beef we sell contains no artificial hormones of any kind. Many cattlemen implant their calves with artificial hormones to promote growth. We do not do this at Off Family Ranch. Our cows live their life grazing on grass or natural forage which we grow ourselves,  and drinking water from the San Juan Mountains.
