At Thousand Hills Lifetime Grazed, we make sure that our Colorado customers receive local Grass Fed Beef sourced from the Regenerative Rancher closest to their location. We partner with cattle ranchers and farmers across the nation, all of whom are dedicated to land regeneration for the future of their families and the planet.
Cows evolved to eat grass. That’s why cattle raised only on grass produce meat that is leaner and lower in cholesterol. The beef contains more essential omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). The latter is a “good fat” that may combat cancer and other serious diseases. Eating Colorado grass fed meats is a healthy choice for the consumer and the land.
Colorado Grass Fed Beef
In Colorado, beef is the number one agricultural product, with 2.7 million cattle. The bulk of these cattle are still raised conventionally, which means not only that they are grain finished in feedlots, but receive antibiotics and growth hormones to boost weight gain. Still, the trend toward regenerative ranching is growing in the Centennial State.
More ranchers are embracing the way ruminants naturally evolved with grasslands. Not long ago, millions of bison roamed these lands. As they grazed, their hooves trampled the soil, aerating it and spreading seeds. Their manure fertilized the soil. Water was retained, as was soil carbon in the plant material. The result was a healthy ecosystem where native plants and animals thrived.
Big agriculture changed that natural dynamic. Industrialized cattle raising relies on cramming animals into feedlots, where they are fattened on cheap diets consisting primarily of grain. All of that feed requires huge amounts of monocultured cropland to keep it going. Rather than serve as natural fertilizer, the manure is collected in tremendous pools, potentially harming waterways and seeping into groundwater.
All of that is a major driver of greenhouse gases and climate change. The use of regenerative agricultural practices can reverse this dependence on the industrial food system that is damaging the lands that feed us.
Feedlot cattle are stressed. They often suffer from ailments directly related to their confinement and diet. That’s where antibiotic use comes in. Feedlot cattle receive low daily doses of antibiotics to keep the disease level down. Those medications are passed on in the meat.
Grass fed cattle live as nature intended.

Our Stance on mRNA Vaccine Use with Livestock
Due to the increased volume of questions about mRNA vaccines we want to make sure that everyone is aware of the following that is included in our protocol:
mRNA Vaccines: many of our consumers are requesting that we provide an update regarding our position on the use of mRNA vaccines for cattle in our supply chain. In the past, Thousand Hills has allowed the producers to determine what vaccines to employ, if any. However, in the case of the COVID or any mRNA vaccine, due to the experimental nature and lack of long-term studies, we are prohibiting their use until further notice for all livestock entering our supply chain until more can be learned of their effectiveness, potential side effects and potential need for such vaccines in managing livestock herd health in general.
