The majority of our beef is processed by a small family-owned business in Elizabeth, Colorado. They take care with every animal, and wrap using plastic on the inside and sturdy freezer paper on the outside. Our animals are hung a minimum of 21 days to ensure maximum flavor and tenderness.
If you order a whole or half, you may have your animal custom cut—choosing the size of roasts, steaks, package size and leanness of the ground beef to fit your family preferences.
If you order a quarter, the packages are a standard cut. Ground beef is 90% lean and wrapped in one pound packages. Steaks are cut 1” thick and packaged singly; round steaks are ½ inch; roasts weigh between 2 and 3 pounds; stew meat is in one pound packages and all other cuts should serve a family of four. Soup bones and organ meat are included; however, the liver is not always available. Also, if you order a quarter (split half), the organ meat is shared with the buyer of the other quarter. The heart and tongue do not always get equally distributed, so please ask for these.
After several years of maintaining our relatively low prices, we found it necessary to raise our prices for 2016. As in the past, we no longer offer a two tiered pricing system - Premium or Standard - as we're confident enough in the grass fed and finished genetics we've been developing since 1999 that we only offer the Premium animal. All animals are ultra sounded for tenderness, shape of the ribeye area and percentage of intramuscular fat - and we only select those that pass our strict criteria.

Colorado Grass Fed Beef at its Best
Oswald Grassfed Beef is an all-natural antibiotic free, grass-fed product. Animals are born at home, raised at home, and finished at home. Since the beginning of our grass-fed business in 1999, we’ve carefully selected our herd to produce a high quality beef animal using bulls that meet or exceed criteria we feel important to producing fantastic meat. We’ve recently began using ultra sound technology on our calves for tenderness, shape and size of the rib eye area and percent of intramuscular fat—keeping only those females which meet our standards to introduce into our cow-calf herd.
It takes us longer to raise a truly finished animal solely on grass than the conventional feedlot animal which is typically fattened on grain. We feel it’s worth the wait. All of the grass-fed animals we sell are a minimum of 24 months of age.
There are many benefits to eating pasture raised or grass-fed and finished beef. For the latest news and research on pasture raised foods, and the health benefits, please visit Jo Robinson’s “Eat Wild” webpage.
Robinson says, “When we switch from grain fed to grass-fed meat, then, we are simply returning to our original diet, the diet that is most in harmony with our physiology. Every cell and system of our bodies functions better when we eat products from animals raised on grass.”
