About Us / Rabb Cattle Co. History: Raises Animal Welfare Approved breeding stock cattle.\n\nTony Rabb has been raising cattle in the foothills of California’s San Joaquin Valley for over 35 years. The 6000 acres Rabb Cattle Co. manages are covered in oak trees, natural springs, ponds, and native and naturalized forage. Tony’s partner, Collette Taylor, initiated their move to a grassfed operation and now Rabb Cattle Co.’s registered Red Angus beef cattle are raised and finished on pasture.\n\nTony and Collette are proud that their cattle have superior genetics. Their commercial cattle herd is mixed with Hereford and Angus bloodlines to produce a herd that is extremely productive—moderately framed and self-sufficient. They describe their cattle as well-adapted to the foothills on which they are foraging, protective of their young, and low-maintenance. Following the rigorous welfare standards required by Animal Welfare Approved ensures that their cattle are well cared-for and well fed. “They work for us,” says Collette, “so we treat them with respect—like an employee.” Being an Animal Welfare Approved beef cattle source farm allows them access to new markets for their grass-finished cattle.\n\nFinding the time to manage over 6000 acres of rangeland and 400-500 cattle is challenging for Collette and Tony. Nevertheless, they also enjoy raising horses and Pembroke Welsh Corgies.
