We are an all-natural operation, raising our animals on mountain and prairie grass, and winter hay when necessary. We do not use any hormones, antibiotics, animal by-products or any other additives in our feed, and we very minimally handle our herd to reduce the stress on these majestic animals. They roam free on our acreage and are never confined in a feedlot for finishing or fattening. The whole herd has year-around access to fresh stream waters, which cross our properties.
