We never administer synthetic growth hormones or steroids of any kind. No sub-therapeutic antibiotics have been fed or administered as a supplement in feed or water for the purpose of growth promotion. As a result, all of our animals are healthy and content, exhibiting the behaviors intended by nature.
According to the USDA, “Grass and forage shall be the feed source consumed for the lifetime of the ruminant animal, with the exception of milk consumed prior to weaning. The diet shall be derived solely from forage consisting of grass (annual and perennial), forbs (e.g., legumes, Brassica), browse, or cereal grain crops in the vegetative (pre-grain) state. Animals cannot be fed grain or grain byproducts and must have continuous access to pasture during the growing season.”
