James Ranch Beef

James Ranch beef is 100% grass fed and finished—no grain or feedlots, from Durango, CO. Our beef marketed to you is grown naturally and receives no hormones, or antibiotics. Our cattle are kept together and rotated often to simulate the grazing patterns of ancient herds maintaining natural balance in grasslands. The cattle are finished for market on our irrigated pastures in the Animas Valley where they eat highly nutritious, low lignin grasses and clovers. And eat it they do! We use a system called "quick rotational grazing" where the market animals are rotated every one to three days, depending on the size of the pasture, onto a fresh salad bar mix of nutritious greens.
