How They are Fed
We finish our Angus beef right here on the Showalter Family Farm. We do not use synthetic fertilizer on our pastures, instead we enrich the soil with our own homemade compost. As you know, compost-fertilized-pastures produce luscious healthy grass. That is the grass our Angus beef forage on till their heart’s content. It is this same grass that we bale as hay to feed our cows through the winter months.
During the summer, our Angus beef with free access to all the grass they want to eat on our fields. With rotational grazing, they are regularly moved to fresh parts of the pasture. During the winter we keep them out of the weather in our barn and feed them hay from our fields. We harvest our grass-fed beef right from the field or barn so there is no stress they encounter by being hauled to a processing facility.
Healthy & Lean
Our grass fed beef will tend to be more lean than some of the marbled meat you see in grain fed animals. So if healthy and lean is what you are after, then our grass fed beef is just the thing.
How much take home meat?
In July 2018 we did one of our grass fed beef and I recorded its live weight, rail weight, and how much take home meat it turned out. This particular beef was as follows:
- Live weight: 1009 lbs.
- Rail weight (hanging weight): 516 lbs.
- Total take home meat: 356.6 lbs. (burger was 259 lbs. & steaks & roast were the other 97.6 lbs.) note that this will vary depending on what types of steaks and roasts you requests
- Take home bone weight: 96.1 lbs. (this customer wanted it for bone broth)
How to order:
Ordering one of our beef is not complicated, all you have to do is:

- …then… Patiently wait for your beef to get to harvest weight
We will go over a cut sheet with you and talk about the various options for each part of your beef. See illustration above to view a breakdown of our standard cuts.

Or click here to see an EXAMPLE BEEF CUT SHEET already filled out.
We will walk you through your different roast options such as if you want arm roasts, rump roasts, chuck roasts, or sirloin tip roasts. You can also opt for whole brisket, brisket cut in half, or brisket ground into burger. Then we can talk about whether you want short ribs or whether you would rather have us put those into your burger.
Next we talk about steaks; would you like rib-eye steaks, Sirloin steaks, & T-bone Steaks? If you prefer boneless, the T-bone can be done as New York strips & Filet mignon. More steak options are available such as cube steaks (same as minute steaks), round steaks, flank steaks, and skirt steaks.
Remember that whatever you do not want in steaks or roasts will go into augmenting your burger amount. We normally package your burger in 1 lb. bags (actual weight is closer to 1.1 lbs.). You can also request to keep the heart, liver, or tongue if that is something you would like.
If you want some of your burger done into quarter pound patties, we vacuum pack them with four per pack. NOTE: Patties will cost extra, $1 per lb. with at 30 lb. minimum.
We vacuum pack and label the roasts and steaks, but the burger is simply put in burger tubes.
Keep in mind that our grass fed beef are subject to availability, since we finish them naturally, without hormones and antibiotics, they are not always going to be the perfect size yet, so we may have to put you on the list till yours becomes available. Also keep in mind that when ordering a half-a-beef, we will wait to harvest it until both halves are sold. Whether you’re looking for an entire cow or just a half, we’re here to do our best to give you what you’re looking for!
