Management Practices

Our management practices work to provide the highest quality beef in South Dakota

Pasture Born and Raised 

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.

  • We use an all-natural parasite control method, using Redmond Garlic Salt and conditioner.
  • The cattle are NEVER administered hormones or antibiotics to enhance growth.
  • No dewormers are needed for our cattle either.
  • Premium Dakota Beef Wagyu crosses grow with ease due to the comfortable living conditions we provide.

Custom Designed Finishing Ration

Once our Wagyu cross breeds are ready for finishing, they get fed a combination of:

  • Non-GMO corn*
  • Alfalfa*
  • Corn silage*
  • Mineral supplement OMRI certified 
  • High functioning probiotic for gut health
  • Redmond salt- packed with trace minerals

*All grown on the farm itself- not imported in!


A farm is more than land and crops. It is a family's HERITAGE & FUTURE.

Antibiotic Free

Only the healthiest calves are available for purchase by our customers.

No Added Hormones

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.

No Animal By-Products

Raised without feeding any animal by-products.
