Lightbulb Alderspring mountain grass fed beef

Alderspring mountain grass fed beef

Saw this ranch featured in "Western Horseman", they use the old Mt Plain "cow camp" model moving their heard frequently to various rich grasses found on the BLM land by horseback. I know cattle can get fat on grass, but only if it's good and protein plus minerals rich.

Of course they sell their range processed beef on-line too. It's pricey, but I have an empty freezer and a stomach to fill!
"Glenn Elzinga, who owns and operates Alderspring Ranch in May, Idaho, with his wife, Caryl. They have sold grass-fed beef on their own website for more than a decade.“That’s what happens with venture capital: They sell the business to somebody and everything changes,” Mr. Elzinga said. “Corporate boardroom decision-making isn’t always aligned with the small producer.”

But Mr. Heitzeberg said he and his co-founder had set out to build a company that could grow without compromising its values. “We are not looking for an exit,” he said. -- NY Times

That's interesting but you know, there are people in Texas doing the same thing, it's just a matter in locating them. We raise cattle and I would love to do that but we can't find a butcher who will do it on the hoof, slaughter a live animal. Same with deer, so many of them want the meat parts to process but don't want the whole animal, which is already hunted so not alive. Also there is the issue of if you actually receive back the processed animal you brought in.
At least the one you found does sell the certain parts you want and not the whole thing.

In Ontario Canada, We can still take cows to the abattoir. they do the whole job. Our cows are grass fed, But in the winter we give them a a couple of scoops of grain every day. I feel really lucky to have grass fed beef. We only have about 20 head
