Grass Fed Beef
"Our family has proudly supported American family farmers for more than 80 years," shared Randy Strauss, third-generation owner-operator, of Strauss Brands. "The unprecedented growth of the Strauss Free Raised® grass fed beef program is a testament to the need for high-quality, American-raised grass fed beef and the growing consumer interest in ethical and sustainable eating."
Program-qualified cattle must be 100 percent grass fed and grass finished, raised without the use of antibiotics or growth-promoting hormones, have English-based genetics (with a preference for Angus, Red Angus and Hereford crosses). Market-ready cattle must be 30 months and younger.
Strauss is searching for like-minded family farmers and ranchers committed to raising their animals with the same passion and ethical standards. We found a like-minded rancher in Montana… Lisa Schmidt. “I’ve learned a lot about the health benefits of it and I’ve also learned that there are different avenues for different people. So we sell grass fed beef. We also promote the industry — we don’t criticize anybody else. That is important — because I’m a rancher and I like my neighbors and they do it different.”
