The grasslands of Montana have been famous for raising beef since the days of big cattle drives from Texas in the 1870s. The climate is ideal for producing high-protein grass, and cattle grow well without unnatural supplementation.-Lots of open space. Lohof cattle are never confined in anyway. They are born in open pastures. They very quickly learn from their mothers how to graze and search for the best feed and water. This movement across thousands of acres of land prevents unhealthy overcrowding of cattle and ensures the well-being of the range for generations to come. How is Lohof beef raised?Our calves are born on their own in open pastures as the spring grass is appearing. The mother cows clean their calves, and the calves get busy nursing and learning to graze. Any cow which does not deliver and raise a live, healthy calf each year without assistance from us is sold. In this way we select for strong cows and calves. Between one and two months of age, the calves are branded and castrated. They spend their summer rotating through grass pastures and have free access to salt, minerals, and water. Goats and sheep also move through the pastures utilizing weeds and browse. When the calves are between 6 and 9 months old, they are weaned from their mothers. We wean them across an electric fence from their mothers to reduce the stress of not being able to see their mothers at all. Within days the calves are grazing independently, and we move them to fresh pasture. Through the winter the calves are fed any grass hay that we baled on our meadows over the summer and usually some high-protein forage such as alfalfa cubes. As soon as the spring grass appears, they are on their own again until winter hay is necessary. This cycle continues until the third summer, during which the "calves" are then 1000 pound 2 year olds and fat enough to be slaughtered. The animals never leave the ranch. They are 100% Made in Montana, and we know exactly what they have eaten from day one. Thus we can guarantee you that these animals have never been given any hormones, antibiotics, or animal by-products. They become are what we are happy to call Lohof Grassfed Beef: All Natural.
