WE ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED
-All of the cattle are raised at our South Eastern Arizona ranch where they grow and develop on native grass and browse (mesquite beans, chamise, other desert plants), and are given (when need) all natural protein supplements, a mixture of molasses and vitamins/minerals.
-We wean the calves at about 6 to 9 months of age at various times throughout the year and take them to our feeding operation in Mesa, AZ
-The steers (weaned male calves) are fed a mix of alfalfa, straw, distillers grain, ground corn, molasses, and a mineral supplement until they reach a weight of roughly 1300 lbs. The ration they are fed is all natural, no hormones or antibiotics. The feed is designed to encourage growth and deposition of intermuscluar fat (marbling). This ensures a tender, great tasting beef.
-The steers are then hauled to a USDA inspected facility where they are harvested for Killian Beef. The beef hangs for 21 days to improve flavor and texture. The beef is then flash frozen and kept frozen ready for purchase from our ON-Farm store at 4741 E Southern Ave. Mesa, AZ 85206
