The beef we raise belongs to American Black Angus beef cattle (and crossbreeds of Angus and Japanese Wagyu)" (Beefs are from beef cattle under 24 months old) -The appearance is characterized by black, no horns, short and firm body, good meat quality with high meat yield, full body muscles, even fat distribution, obvious marble-like patterns, tender and firm beef, fresh and smooth, excellent meat quality, mellow and rich taste The juice is sweet, mellow and chewy, and the taste is superb.
Grass-fed cattle mainly grow in pastoral areas and are fed natural fresh pastures for a relatively long time until they reach maturity (usually 30-36 months old). The amount of fat in grass-fed beef muscle is small, and most of its fat accumulates under the skin, which is easy to remove when eating. In areas with large pastures, the production of grass-fed cattle occupies a large proportion.
Grain-fed cattle is a calf that eats pasture to a certain weight or age, and then enters the feedlot to feed grain forage to fatten, so that the cattle can grow to the expected weight as soon as possible. In order to ensure a balanced intake of nutrients for cows, grain feed containsbarley wheat, sorghum, corn, oats and other ingredients, just like feed for other livestock!
Grain-fed cattle are classified according to the number of days of feeding grains and the type of cattle, which can be divided into 100 days, 120 daysand 200 days of grain feeding. The higher the number of days of grain feeding, the more abundant the snow pattern of the beefand the higher the cost.Grain-fed cattle usually reach the expected feeding weight between 18-24 months of age, which is nearly 12 months shorter than grass-fed cattle.
Compared with grass-fed cattle, grain-fed cattle have a higher fat content, and the fat is evenly distributed in the muscle tissue. This is what we often call marbling or oily. The famous Wagyu and Angus cattle are all grain-fed cattle.
