Beef available: Cattle on the Earl farm do not reach the size of commercial raised beef as ours are not given growth hormones, antibiotics, or fed animal proteins. Instead, they eat grass and hay with the right mix of corn and oats to promote a healthy 18 month growth cycle. They are not organic, however they eat naturally with a small amount of grain to promote marbling for an appropriately lean and tasty meat. They live a calm and relaxed life and only have one bad day.
Key Information: Breed: Black Angus Cost: $4.25 lb of hanging weight plus processing (approx. $.60 per pound of hang wt).

*When you calculate the cost comparison between buying cuts of beef at the grocery store to purchasing a portion of a steer, you will find it is an equal or less cost to purchase a quarter or more of a steer. The key is you know where your beef is coming from and that it is quality beef without added hormones or unnatural feed practices.
