Review of Struthoff Ranch Beef by TexasRealFood
Struthoff Ranch Beef specializes in raising Registered Texas Longhorns. They practice a feeding regimen that is a combination of free grazing and grain finishing. Their cattle-raising practice allows them to graze the cows in open pasturing fields instead of feed lots. This produces high-quality cuts of beef that are free from any antibiotics, pesticides, and growth hormones while also respecting the animal's welfare.
The term “grass fed” (as opposed to grain fed) refers to meat obtained from cows that were raised on a diet of grass and other forage, such as clover; situated in pasture and, when fresh grass is unavailable, hay. This helps to denote the difference between livestock that has been raised in feedlots and generally fed a diet of soy and corn, versus animals that have had access to their natural feeding environment in pasture, which contains grasses, wildflowers, and herbs. This term overlaps with “pasture-raised” and will usually be seen together. Grass-fed beef is also believed to taste better, and be better for the environment, too. There are several organizations that offer a certification for Grass Fed, such as the American Grassfed Association, Certified Grassfed by A Greener World, and Pasture for Life, to name a few.
Some of the businesses listed in our directory will be using the same principles as Certified Naturally Grown farmers, but without the certification. Certifications can often be expensive and time consuming for most farmers to participate in, and therefore we feel it is important to acknowledge those who practice good land stewardship, without certification.
Their certification is third-party verified and guarantees that when consumers buy grass fed beef with the American Grass Fed Association logo, they are ensured it was born, raised, and processed in the USA, that the animals were treated humanely, and that they were grazed regeneratively. This confirms to shopkeepers and the consumer that American Grass Fed Association certified producers are improving soils, water quality, biodiversity, and American farming communities. Anyone can join to become a member, with different levels of membership based on whether they are Certified American Grass Fed, working towards certification, or just supportive of the organisation. This gives access to various benefits, dependent on the tier of membership. They also stand by the rights of farmers and ranchers to make a living that not only supports their families, but encourages next-generation succession through education, support, and marketing. Their website also serves as a resource hub for those that are looking for more information on the highest-end animal husbandry, regenerative methods, and holistic management of livestock.
