Black angus, born and pasture-raised right here at the ranch! From birth on, they live happy lives grazing out in the open sunshine. Superior herd genetics are just the beginning of the story; every year we look for and breed specific genetic traits, including exceptional tenderness, marbling, and flavor - as well as ease of calving and good nature to make Andrew's life a little easier!
Delicious! We ultrasound our herd prior to butchering to ensure you only receive high-choice or prime grade meat. You won’t be disappointed! We have over 100 years experience raising nothing but beef – it’s all we do!
All of our animals are free of growth hormones and steroids.
We do not routinely feed or administer antibiotics to our animals. However their well-being comes first, and on the rare occasion one becomes sick (usually a calf), we will administer a dose. Anything more serious, and the animal is removed from our program. Additionally, if they require medication for any reason in the last 365 days prior to harvesting, they are also removed from our herd.
The answer to this is truly what sets us apart from other ranches!
Our cattle spend their whole lives on pasture grazing our thousands of acres. Just before heading to the butcher (the last month or so), we offer them a free-choice, homegrown blend of hay, alfalfa, corn, beets, and spent grains from local Colorado breweries, while still on pasture. We guarantee this will be some of the healthiest and tastiest beef you’ve ever had!
Our beef is harvested at a first class, USDA inspected facility here in Colorado. It is one of only two Animal Welfare approved facilities in the state which focuses on no-stress handling and quick, humane harvesting.
Beef is a naturally gluten-free product. A couple of our products (including hot links) are made with a small amount of local craft beef, which can contain gluten.
For reference, our 1/4 cow share typically requires 4-5 cubic feet of space. A 1/2 cow share requires approximately 9-10 cubic feet, and a whole animal requires 18-20 cubic feet of space.
If you have specials requests for bones, oxtails, livers, hearts, etc. (otherwise known as the odds n’ ends), we are happy to accommodate your request. Just drop us an email and we’ll see how we can help!
We are required to collect sales tax in many different states. The collection of sales tax is based on where an order is picked up or shipped, whether we are required to collect sales tax in that particular state, city, or county, and the products purchased (food or merchandise). While there is typically no state sales tax on food for human consumption in Colorado, there are separate raw food tax rules for every city and county in the state. Bootheel 7 Ranch collects all local and state sales tax when applicable.
