Green grass, blue skies and the crystal clear waters of Wisconsin are the primary ingredients in Wisconsin Meadows 100% Grass-fed Beef and Pastured Pork products. (OK – plus some healthy soil to root around in!) Our Wisconsin family farm member-owners who raise the livestock for all Wisconsin Meadows products believe that rotationally grazing is the best way to raise lean, tasty beef and pork.
Sustainably Produced 100% Grass-fed (and finished!) Beef
Wisconsin Meadows beef is 100% grass-fed and grass-finished. The cattle on our cooperative members’ farms are fed only grass (and other pasture plants like clover) – or stored forms of those same plants in things like hay – for their entire life from birth to slaughter. No grains, ever. Our beef comes from livestock raised on family farms all across Wisconsin that are humanely treated, and naturally-raised without synthetic growth hormones or antibiotics.
Our cattle are never in feedlots and calves are left with their mothers to learn natural grazing and social behaviors. We use low-stress handling methods which make for calmer, healthier cattle. They all have outdoor access and rotationally graze their entire lives, eating only pasture forages and hay. Rotational grazing has many benefits for the environment, the cattle, and the farmer!
Taste the provenance and diversity of Wisconsin’s pastures and seasonal variances which produce a rich, beefy flavor compared to the cornfed, homogeneous feedlot product most Americans are used to. With the proper herd genetics, and careful stewardship of our pastures, we produce quality lean and tender beef without the use of corn or grains. We think you will appreciate the subtle flavor!
