Utah Grass Fed Meats
Utah is home to 830,000 head of cattle, raised on 8,000 ranches and farms. Virtually all of these farms and ranches are run by families. A fair number of these properties have been owned by the same family since the 19th century. Livestock is the major agricultural industry in 25 out of the state’s 29 counties.
While the majority of beef cattle produced in Utah are raised conventionally, more of these family enterprises are turning to regenerative agriculture to sustain the land and provide consumers with healthy meat.
Thousand Hills Lifetime Grazed sources our burgers, steaks, and other meat products from local grass fed beef ranchers nationwide. We have Regenerative Ranching partners in the West, Midwest and Northeast. Your 100% Grass Fed Beef order is sent from the location nearest to you.
Utah Grass Fed Beef
The Utah Department of Agriculture and Food oversees the Utah Grazing Improvement Program. The UGIP goals include improving the “productivity, health and sustainability” of the Beehive State’s rangelands and watersheds. Along with strengthening the livestock industry, the UGIP aims to enhance the environment and boost rural economies. Technical expertise and educational opportunities are available to help working ranches, along with ranching’s next generation.
In Utah, most cattle have access to grass for only part of the year. Grass finished beef cattle are fed hay during the period when grass is unavailable.
Utah grass fed beef not only provides nourishment to consumers, but the regenerative management practices restore depleted soils and help combat climate change. Their managed grazing utilizes a holistic approach. The result is soil regeneration, protection of water resources, enhanced biodiversity and no need for chemical pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers on the land. Through regenerative practices, more carbon is removed from air and sequestered in healthy plant root systems. Carbon is among the primary sources of greenhouse gas emissions, the cause of global warming.
Grass Fed vs. Grass Finished Beef
At Thousand Hills Lifetime Grazed, we provide our customers with only grass fed, grass finished beef. What’s the difference? Beef labeled “grass fed” does not mean the cattle ate grass or forage exclusively. They may have ended up at a feedlot consuming grains for fattening prior to slaughter. “Grass finished” beef cattle, on the other hand, consumed only grass or forage for their entire lives.
Rest assured that the meat you buy from Thousand Hills Lifetime Grazed contains no hormones, antibiotics, or GMOs. These cattle never ate grain and lived a natural life roaming and grazing. They did not spend the last several weeks of their lives in a crowded feedlot. Instead, they led a low-stress existence.
