Maytag Mountain Ranch raises grass fed cattle: the happiest and healthiest in the West.
Our cattle are born and raised on Maytag Mountain Ranch’s 2,953 acres of lush and green natural grasses, and the cattle enjoy warm days and cool nights. An intensive rotational grazing system ensures our cattle have plenty of fresh grass to eat; our pastures are never artificially fertilized and our cattle drink the spring water that flows on the Ranch. We never use hormones or antibiotics, and the entire Ranch is certified Organic. Our cattle are not taken to the feedlot to be “finished.” Instead they fatten on natural grass, every day of their lives — the way nature intended.
Our system is better for the cattle… The majority of cattle Americans eat are fattened on grains, principally corn, instead of the grass nature intended them to eat. They are fed hormones and antibiotics. All of these practices are negative for the cattle and negative for the humans who consume the beef. This has been well documented.
Useful information is also available in the book by Jo Robinson, “Why Grassfed is Best!” (Visit www.eatwild.com for more information.).
Our system is better for your health… Maytag Mountain Ranch’s famous grass fed beef has higher levels of Omega 3 fatty acids, which lower the risk of heart disease, and which may reduce the risk of cancer. It is also lower in total fat than beef from conventionally raised (corn finished) cattle, resulting in fewer calories. Best of all, it tastes great!

“The steaks were glorious. It was also a relief not to worry about mad cow because we knew that these beauties had been fed on your healthy grass. The taste had a freshness and beefiness we seldom have encountered and was better than the dry aged Colorado Prime we sometimes buy.”
