Grain -Finished

Open Range Grass-Fed Grain-Finished

Great Northern range grass-fed, grain-finished Angus beef is finished on a special 'granola’, a custom mixture of grass, grains and corn, which never ever includes tallow or animal by-products. At a year and a half old my cattle go through a finishing period of around 120-150 days eating a high protein diet of corn, distiller's grain, hay and mineral supplements. This finish period gives the beef a rich, buttery taste and wonderful tenderness.

The cattle are not given antibiotics either directly via an injection (therapeutically) or indirectly (sub-therapeutically) in their feed. It's not commonly known, but most cattle finishing operations put a low level of antibiotics into the daily feed ration. It takes generational wisdom and a lifetime of experience to develop the livestock management skills to finish healthy animals without drugs, but for Great Northern there is no other option than beef raised this way.
