Why grass-fed works at A Land of Grass Ranch– with a little help from our friends. By Lisa Schmidt
At A Land of Grass Ranch, producers of natural grass-fed beef and lamb, we are fortunate to live so near Conrad, Montana, smack in the heart of premier beef genetics. Within 30 miles, at least five of our neighbors have worldwide reputations as foremost leaders at improving black and red Angus and Hereford bloodlines.
As the county seat of Pondera County, Conrad, Montana sits about an hour north of Great Falls, in the middle of Montana’s Golden Triangle. The Golden Triangle covers the area from Great Falls north to Havre, and then west to Cut Bank and then southeast back to Great Falls. This region of north-central Montana exports more wheat than the rest of the state. Most of the agricultural land in Pondera County grows spring wheat for bread, winter wheat for noodles and barley for beer.
But it is no secret that Montana beef thrives in the high and dry, cold country that hems the wheat fields of the Golden Triangle. Savvy cattle breeders know that good grain country means good grass country, too. The best cattle in the world put that grass to work.
Grassfed Beef in Conrad, Montana
Our honest Conrad, Montana neighbors work hard to balance the best mothering characteristics in their cows with productive, efficient calves by their sides. These Montana cattle utilize what Mother Nature offers and don’t need artificial supplements. My husband, Steve, and I benefit enormously from our neighbors’ hard work when we buy their natural grassfed bulls. Most of our Montana cows link directly back to top-of-the-line Pondera County genetics, too.
Our cows convert Conrad, MT grass to beef and they do it more efficiently than any machine a human has ever created. They convert natural grass that has grown there for eons – Lewis and Clark walked on Graham Ranch grass. More than 90% of the Graham Ranch has never seen a plow. The plants rejuvenate themselves each year, the ultimate renewable resource.
Our Conrad, MT natural grassfed beef comes directly from that grass. We do not finish cattle on grain or any other supplement. Our cows, offspring of our neighbors’ prime genetics, make that possible.
