Longhorn Meat for healthy nutrition

Eventhough it’s difficult for us imagining our beautiful animals being butchered, Texas Longhorns are actual beef cattle. The meat from Texas Longhorn cattle is leaner comparing to other breeds and feeding costs per kg weight gain is way less.

An additional quality feature of the meat is that they are grass-fed. We are glad having developed a big number of happy customers and friends acknowledging their quality. Whether it’s steak, roastbeef or any other meal – according to our customer’s reviews it’s always really delicious.

Texas Longhorns are having only a third of fat on the back compared to other cattle. The animals are growing faster since everything is going in the growth and not in the fat. In average Longhorns need 20% less food than other breeds. The tasty meat has less cholesterol and less calories than chicken meat. It has a very high level of unsaturated fats.

Organic grass-fed beef

We don’t use any chemical fertilisers on our pastures or fields. Our animals have the space they need. The whole year round they feel comfortable in the herd, with bulls, babies, cows – so they can act in their natural surrounding. The cows are feeding the calves during the entire summer and are not split. In the winter they can stand in open shelters near our house so they are in daily contact with us.

Our animals are fed only with grass of the pastures and with own hay in winter once they reach a certain age. This has an enormous impact on the meat: it is tastier, it has only one third of fat and less calories. It contains a high level of omega-3 fatty acids as well as vitamins E and C.

The fact that our animals are used to be replaced between the pastures after they grazed them they are used to transportation and won’t develop any stress and adrenalin when they get driven to our butcher. This is really important to us because it would add stress-related hormones to the meat.

Our animals are processed in a nearby butchery only 15 minutes away from us. There they stay in a cattle friendly stable overnight to reduce any stress and keep them calm. After butchering the meat stays there a certain time for ripening to increase the quality.

We provide only a few animals every year for meat production so we don’t have our products available at every time. So let us know when you are interested in meat and we will inform you once we sell our popular mixed meat packages.
