We believe in the traditional method of ranching where cattle are free to roam on vast acres of rich pasture. Watkins cattle are 100% range fed (free range). This means they are never confined to a feedlot for feeding in their entire lives. In the cowboy tradition, they gain their weight from nature.
Recent studies have shown that range fed beef is a perfect source for Omega3 fatty acids. Omega 3's are beneficial for individuals with heart disease and some studies indicate that Omega 3's may also have an anti-carcinogenic effect. Our range fed cattle source the Omega 3's from the green leaves of native natural grasses on which they graze freely.
Our core values as ranchers and cowboys dictate that all animals deserve ethical and humane treatment. Range fed is the slow way, but in the end, it's the right way.
