The Natural Benefits of Heart-J Grass-fed Beef The Natural Benefits of Heart-J Grass-fed Beef

The human body has an amazing ability to convert almost anything it is fed into some form of usable energy and material from which to grow and rebuild.

But, just as quality construction material makes a critical difference in a building that lasts, the choice of food and other substances we place into our body plays a major role in determining our health and quality of life.

When you purchase Heart-J Grass-fed Beef you get the finest natural meat you can find.

No Additives:

You want real, natural beef, not meat that's been artificially manipulated. Our Heart-J grass-fed beef assures you that your beef has NO steroids, NO hormones, NO GMOs, and NO antibiotics!

Heart-J Beef is processed in a clean, USDA inspected local processing plant. In addition to being safe, it also healthier because it is both grass-fed and grass-finished.

Heart Healthy:

Grass-fed beef contains more healthy Omega-3's, CLA, vitamins and other nutrients! Grass-fed beef contains the ideal, healthy ratio of the essential fatty acids Omega-6 and Omega-3.

It contains more healthy Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), and other nutrients than grain-fed, feedlot beef.

It’s leaner, with fewer calories, and richer in Vitamins B, E and beta carotene.

Most importantly, the amount of Omega 6 fat in grass-fed beef is much lower, which protects you from the kind of heart problems associated with grain-fed beef.

Eco-Friendly:

Cows know instinctively the best grass to feed on and choose grasses that are naturally the most healthy. Heart-J Cattle graze on mountain grasslands on our 3200-acre ranch and over 4000 western acres of leased forest land giving them an abundance of natural food grasses.

Our irrigated pastures are never treated with chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides, so you don't need to worry about finding them in your beef.

We use rapid-rotation grazing to enhance native grassland, and cooperate with university and conservation organizations to improve water quality, soil fertility and wildlife habitat on our land. Over eighty percent of our land is protected by conservation easements as permanent open space.

Your purchase of our "conservation beef" helps preserve open lands, wildlife, and the Western lifestyle

Affordable

We work hard to keep our costs down so we can offer high-quality, grass-fed beef at reasonable prices. Buying in bulk (wholes, halves, and quarters) helps customers save up to 26 percent over the price of individual cuts.

Locally Raised:

When you buy Heart-J Grass-fed Beef you know where your beef comes from! And you save on shipping which in turn reduces your carbon footprint.

We’ve been family-owned and operated since 1946, and our cattle are born, raised and grass-finished right here on the ranch. We often attend local Farmers' Markets, so stop by and see us.

Tenderness Tested:

Producing high-quality, tender beef on grass is a challenging art and science. We continuously improve the "tenderness genes" in our herd by having our beef tenderness tested by a third-party meat lab.

In addition, we pay careful attention to the three key practices that increase tenderness: proper age of slaughter, nutrient-rich forages during the last ninety days of finishing, and low-stress cattle handling.

Humane Treatment:

Animal welfare is of vital importance to our beef program. On cattle drives and roundups, we know that "slower is faster." We’re improving our cattle handling facilities along the lines recommended by animal behavior specialist Temple Grandin, and we are shortening confinement periods to a minimum.

Recently we’ve instituted pasture-based weaning to lower stress on both mamas and calves when they are weaned.
