What do we feed our cows?

Our black angus beef cows are pastured on lush grass in North East Arkansas, they are free-range grass-fed cattle with full-access to 30% protein supplement, mineral and salt lick, hay, and a ration of sweet feed of 12% protein twice daily to ensure they are receiving all proper nutrients needed for beef cattle.

This is grass-fed natural beef as nature intended. No force feeding, no steroids, additives, or hormones. 100% Natural.

How much freezer room do I need for a whole cow?

The general rule of thumb is 1 cubic foot of freezer space per 30-35 lbs of cut and wrapped meat. You would need about 13 cubic feet for a whole processed cow weighing about 400 lbs.
