“We believe in providing all of our animals with a high quality of life and strongly believe in the “5 Freedoms” – Freedom from thirst or hunger; Freedom from discomfort; Freedom from pain, injury and disease; Freedom to express normal behavior and; Freedom from Fear and Distress. These are paramount to how we feel quality cattle should be raised.”
“None of our beef has been given any added hormones or unnecessary antibiotics throughout its entire life. We vaccinate to prevent disease in our calves, so that we do not need to use antibiotics often – if at all – in that animal’s lifetime. We also keep our herd density low, which prevents over crowding and also reduces the need to use medications.”
In 2020, Greg & Trish are experimenting with a poly-crop (a specific mix of grasses, brassicas, legumes and other plants that get cut into rows in the field for winter feeding) and grazing their cattle all winter long. Alberta winters are cold and cattle require a fair bit of extra energy to stay warm. The mix of plants in the poly-crop is intended to give them that without the need of adding grain.
Come Springtime, they are returned to the rich, green pastures to continue their natural growth curve for a few more months. It takes several more months to raise cattle on grass than if they were in a feedlot receiving a high grain ration. Native pastures are rich in many nutrients and are typically higher in the Omega fatty acids. The rolling landscape also allows for good muscle, lung and heart development, leading to stronger calves.
Beef is considered a “Nutrient Dense” food with high levels of Iron, Vitamin B-12 & Zinc. Pasture raised, grass fed and finished beef also tends to be higher in Omega 3 fatty acids and CLAs (Conjugated Linoleic Acids), which are belived to have many benefits on human health. Tetz Cattle beef is also 100% free of added hormones and antibiotics.Shop Our Products
