Premium Dakota Beef's cattle are born out on pasture in May and July to minimize stress for the cows and their calves. The spring and fall are when the weather is most encouraging for young, vulnerable calves. The calves stay with their mothers out on pasture until they're about 500 - 600lbs. At that point, they're weaned and put into our finishing program, where they get a carefully mixed ration made up of feedstuffs that all come from the farm or are locally sourced.
Once our Wagyu cross breeds are ready for finishing, they get fed a combination of:
*All grown on the farm itself- not imported in!
A farm is more than land and crops. It is a family's HERITAGE & FUTURE.
Only the healthiest calves are available for purchase by our customers.
We don't add hormones. hormones speed weight gain, decreasing the days on feed, which lowers marbling that takes time to develop. Most cattle are finished before marbling develops.
Raised without feeding any animal by-products.
