WHY GRAIN-FED BEEF?
All cattle at Mountain View Feeders are finished on a grain-based diet developed by a cattle nutritionist. Grains offers many benefits in the meat taste and quality.
Grain-finished beef offers a buttery, slightly sweet flavor and a texture that most people describe as melt-in-your-mouth tender. It's also more forgiving to cook with its higher fat content.
Here is more information about the differences from the Beef Checkoff: GRAIN-FINISHED VS. GRASS FINISHED BEEF
WHERE ARE OUR CATTLE PROCESSED?
Mountain View Meats uses USDA-inspected Brothers Custom Processing, in Craig, CO, to provide you with the highest quality meat possible. It has been aged for 14 days to increase tenderness and flavor. It is processed into common standard cuts and placed in vacuumed-sealed packaging.
If you would like to use your own cutting instructions, Mace can assist you with that.
