OUR RANCH

WE DO NOT TREAT OUR ANIMALS WITH ANTIBIOTICS, HORMONES OR GROWTH ADDITIVES THEREFORE PRODUCING A NATURAL, RESIDUE FREE PRODUCT. 

Oak Ridge Angus cattle are raised on native grasses and thru our long-term partnership with the Bear Republic Brewing Co, 100% finished on spent Barley and Wheat Brewers grain, a natural by-product of the beer making process.  The grain is primarily malted barley that is GMO and corn free. The high protein content in the spent grain offers a wide variety of amino acids essential in the diet of livestock.

The ranch provides a low stress, healthy environment for all our animals to thrive in. Our Angus cattle are born and raised on the ranch. We keep our herd modest, approximately 300 mother cows, supplying the optimal environment for healthy and happy animals.  We take pride in humanely raising our animals with kindness, consideration, according to their needs and without cruelty.

OAK RIDGE ANGUS RANCH FEEDS APPROXIMATELY 25,000 LBS OF BREWER’S GRAIN PER WEEK.

By utilizing our cattle to manage vegetation overgrowth, encouraging the development of native grasses through the application of natural fertilizer, and using a waste source in the beer making process as a major feed source confirms our strong commitment to regenerative agriculture as well as leaving a minimal environmental footprint. Our cows are pasture raised on land covered with vegetation suitable for grazing and foraging.  We practice regenerative agriculture. This entails a set of planned agricultural practices that ensure land is not depleted, and over time the soil, water, air and biodiversity are improved or maintained to the greatest extent possible.
