Colorado Beef For Sale

21

Ideally, the Colorado beef for sale section of CattleForSale.com is intended to show people that beef raised in Colorado continues to be the best value you will find anywhere in the United States. This is especially true when you consider that if you go out West and buy beef directly from a family run farm, the price per pound can actually go down rather than up.

We offer Wagyu beef and heritage breed pork from customizing cuts and recipes to suit our customers’ needs.

We can always dry age your meat and find you that special steak, chop, or offal you are looking for, so do not hesitate to reach out with any special requests!

Whole, Half, and Quarter Beef

Purchase a Whole, Half, or Quarter Beef

We are pleased to announce the annual sale of Whole, Half, and Quarter Steers. We only sell whole, halves, and quarters once a year so this is your only chance to stock up on our high quality beef. This year, we have a very limited quantity of wholesale beef available so let us know as soon as possible if you are interested in getting on the list.

Our Beef is simply as good as it gets. We start with healthy, happy, free-range Black Angus cattle raised exclusively here at our ranch. We carefully select the best steers, finish them on our own proprietary feed mix, and then dry age our beef for at least 21 days.  The result is something that has to be tasted to be believed.

About

Our animals live a natural life!  We raise our animals as close to their natural habitat as we can achieve.  No vaccinations, no antibiotics, no growth hormones, and no chemical de-wormers.  Our animals feed on 100% biodynamic pastures and are never fed GMO grain or alfalfa.  Our pastures are grown with only biological supplements; no pesticides, no herbicides, and no synthetic chemical fertilizers.

We believe that the health of our livestock translates directly to human health!

Our Process

Why does our meat taste so good?  There are several reasons.  First, our pastures are grown holistically without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers.  We include a diverse mixture of grasses, legumes, brassicas,  and forbes in our fields.  This diversity of plant material is what gives our meat a deep, rich, and complex flavor.

We rotate our cattle on grass pastures. Through the winter months we supplement with our own hay grown on  remineralized fields.   Our cattle are never confined to a feed lot.  They graze the land as they were originally designed to do.  We simply orchestrate their rotation and provide them with the best possible nutrition which is passed on to our customers.

Like our forage we have a diverse group of cows.  We raise Hereford, Angus, Devon and British White cattle.  It is a closed herd.  We sell only what we raise.  Each calf is raised to an appropriate age to be fully finished on pasture.  This insures the quality of our meat.  Our farm plan focuses on nutrition from soil to plants to animals to humans.  We would love to be YOUR farmers.

Our meat is dry-aged, the old fashioned way, for 14 days at a USDA inspected facility on the Western Slope.

FAQ’s

Where is Lasater Grasslands Beef?
We run cattle on the short grass prairie of Eastern Colorado near Matheson and on Park Springs Ranch in the canyon country near Las Vegas, N.M.

How are your cattle processed?

Our cattle are processed at two, small family-owned facilities. This cannot be more different than the mammoth industrialized plants where most of the U.S. beef supply is processed.

Our beef is butchered by hand by long term, conscientious employees. While our meat is processed in plants that handle other natural beef, ours is done on specific days, in a batch, so that there is no chance of co-mingling our beef with other beef. Each animal is tagged with an individual number that identifies them all the way through the process.


Are your cattle ever fed grain?

No, our cattle are grass fed and grass finished.Is your grass fed beef organic?

Our beef is not certified organic. However, our cattle eat nothing but grasses and forbs, supplemented by hay and alfalfa pellets in the winter.

Since almost all organic beef (and chicken and pork) are grain-fed in confinement, we maintain that eating our beef, raised humanely in open pastures, is a healthier choice, more natural, and better for the environment.

As grass fed expert Jo Robinson states in her essay Beyond Organic: “That expensive, USDA-certified organic steak at your grocery store is likely to come from a cow that spent most of its time in a feedlot eating far too much grain“.Is your product free range?

Yes, our cattle are never confined to a feedlot; they spend all of their happy lives on the open range.

Do you use hormones, pesticides, antibiotics, or herbicides?

No, we do not use any antibiotics, hormones, growth implants, animal by-products, or steroids on our cattle. We also do not treat our pastures with any pesticides or herbicides as we believe that in order to have a complete balance out on the prairie all the naturally growing vegetation needs to be a part of it.
What does your beef taste like?

Our beef has a distinct “pure” taste. It is different than grain fed; we think it tastes better without all the chemicals.


Is grass fed beef tougher than grain fed beef?

No, but our beef is much leaner and needs to be cooked at a lower temperature and the internal temperature of the meat should be lower than grain fed beef. See our temperature guide for more information.

Is your beef lower in calories and saturated fat than grain fed beef?

Yes, Lasater Grasslands Beef is lower in calories and saturated fat than grain fed beef; it is a great source of lean protein.
