What exactly do our cattle eat?

They are 99.9% grass-fed and finished!

Our cattle graze exclusively on our biodiverse Louisiana pastures.

The cattle forage on our diverse pastures for plants such as sorghum multiple types of clovers, plantain, chicory, small grains, brassicas, radishes, turnips, collards, buckwheat, cow peas, sunn hemp, sunflower, okra. There is the smorgasbord of native browse and grass species endemic to our area! 

We also use soybean meal as a protein supplement in the winter, only if we have to. Doing so allows the cattle to better utilize the dormant (low protein low nutrient) forage during the winter months that otherwise would be indigestible for them. The microbes in their rumens need a minimum amount of protein in order to effectively digest the forages they consume. We use small amounts of soybean meal because it is very high in protein and allows them to utilize the low protein forages we have on the farm during the winter.

How to cook grass-fed beef?

Grass-fed beef tends to cook faster and dry out more easily than grain-fed beef.

The key is to keep it moist! Here are some tips:

  • Add in other ingredients to help keep it moist. Chopped onions, shredded veggies, tomato sauce, cheese, or butter all work great.
  • Reheat your cooking surface to get that perfect sear. Then, turn the heat down a notch to prevent over cooking.
  • A little added fat goes a long way! Adding oil, butter, or ghee to your cooking surface will help prevent sticking and add in some moisture.
  • And most importantly, don’t over cook. It’s best to pull the meat off the heat at around 140 degrees and let it rest. The beef will continue to cook a bit off the heat and raise in temperature another 5-10 degrees, this is called “carry over cooking”.
