About L&S Beef
All of our steers, also known as feeder cattle, selected for freezer beef are raised 100% on pasture with access to fresh clean drinking water.
We finish out on grain, however, if ordered in advance grass finished is an option. We grow the hay that is baled or wrapped into baleage which is fed or shredded into our grain ration. We grow the corn silage which is chopped. We source gin trash from a local cotton gin.
L&S fully believes in the use of antibiotics for the health and wellbeing of our herd however no antibiotics are used in our feeder cattle. If antibiotics are necessary for a feeder, they would be withdrawn from the feeder program.
No Growth Hormones
We do not implant any growth hormones into our feeder cattle.
Once feeder cattle are ready for beef processing, the carcass is dry aged for a minimum of 21 days. By dry aging the meat in a controlled temperature environment, the natural enzymes in the beef breakdown adding an undeniable flavor and tenderness.
