WHY CORN FED BEEF?
All cattle at Mountain View Feeders are finished on a corn based diet. Corn offers many benefits in the meat taste and quality.
Corn 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.
WHERE ARE OUR CATTLE PROCESSED?
