We take care of the land, so the land will take care of us.
As USDA certified organic ranchers, we follow an organic system plan to create a sustainable ecosystem where every animal thrives––keeping our cattle raising practices sustainable for future generations.
The single most important part of raising 100% grass-fed and finished beef is providing animals with an abundant amount of healthy forage. We do this through rotational grazing, the process of strategically moving livestock from pasture to pasture on a regular basis. Resting grazed pastures allows forage plants to renew energy reserves, rebuild vigor, deepen root systems, and provide long-term maximum production.
Pesticide and Hormone Free
Our USDA certification means that we never use pesticides, hormones, and synthetic fertilizers. Instead we use proper grazing techniques to promote forage growth and provide a sustainable amount of grass. That means the 17,000 breathtaking acres at Rocker 3 Ranch will continue to be home for the cattle and wildlife roaming on the land for generations to come.
When snow covers the grass at Rocker 3, we feed our cattle USDA certified organic grass hays and alfalfa. We grow the majority of the grass hay right here at the ranch and source the alfalfa and additional grass hay from other local, organic farmers. Rain or shine, our cattle always graze in an open pasture, never a feedlot.
