Sommers Ranch Beef
Sommers Ranch, LLC operates a cow/calf/yearling operation in the Upper Green River Valley near Pinedale, Wyoming. The cattle being sold in Sommers Ranch Grass Fed Beef were born and raised on our ranching operation in this valley. These cattle eat grass and are fed hay year around on our private land and federal grazing leases. The cattle are under our control during their lifetime prior to being utilized for Sommers Ranch Grass Fed Beef. We do not feed or otherwise introduce added hormones to our cattle. After slaughter all beef carcasses are put in a dry aging cooler for approximately 14 days until processing.
Grass-fed beef, or beef produced from cattle finished on forage only diets, has been touted as a more nutritious beef product. There are a number of reports that show grass-fed beef products contain elevated concentrations of b-carotene and α-tocopherol, increased levels of omega-3 fatty acids, a more desirable omega-3:omega-6 ratio, and increased levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), all substances reported to have favorable biological effects on human health.
We use Carcass Ultrasound on our live animals to help select the most tender animals for your plate.
