100% of the diet of our grass-fed animals consists of freshly grazed pasture and stored grasses (hay or grass silage.) Free-choice minerals supplementations may also be given as needed.
Hormones or steroids never administered to animals. (The FDA does not allow the use of hormones or antibiotics in the production of pork or poultry.)
* Our natural production practices eliminates the need for sub-therapeutic (daily fed low-level dose) medications that are commonly used in confinement production systems. However, in certain cases to prevent animals from death or suffering we do allow for limited use of therapeutic (spot treatment) medication. In such cases, the prescribed withdrawal period is doubled before animals are ever harvested. We feel that this exception is only practical to ensure wise stewardship practices and ethical treatment of our livestock.
