CT Ranch currently raises 6-8 steers per year for beef. Our pastures can only sustain that amount without overgrazing and we prefer to offer a quality product over quantity of product.
We have chosen to raise Angus, Hereford & Brangus cattle on our ranch. In addition to our few beef cows, we partner with two local farms to get a few high quality steer calves as well. These breeds and their incredible genetics, results in a high quality, delicious beef.
All beef steers from CT Ranch are raised naturally for the best taste & quality meat we can provide. CT Ranch cattle are rotationally grazed and moved to new fresh pasture every day! They are given high-quality hay as needed when our pastures are not sufficient. Garden leftovers and rejected fruits & vegetables from the farm are also herd favorites. We provide them with free-choice mineral and salt blocks as well.
CT Ranch cattle are never given any hormones, steroids or antibiotics. They are natural, pasture-raised, grass-fed and grass-finished.
All our steers have an approximate hanging weight of 500-600 lbs. You can expect an approximate final weight between 100-125lbs. depending on your cutting selections chosen. Your cutting selections will be determined based on a "split-side" of a half with another member.
This is an average amount to be expected from a quarter beef.
