Discover all the health benefits of grass-fed beef without sacrificing tenderness, juiciness and great flavor. At Wisdom Works Ranch, we raise and finish a limited quantity of steers and heifers on our small ranch adjacent to the Big Hole River in Wisdom, Montana. We work with local ranchers to acquire Hereford or Angus-Charolais cross for our retail-wholesale program. In addition to Herefords or A-C cross, we also have Longhorns available to customers wanting a half or whole beef.
Grass-fed beef is typically "finished" when the pasture is green and lush during late spring and early summer. This process generally requires a total of 24-30 months for a steer to reach market weight, with 70-80% of the grass-fed beef sold in the United States being imported, mostly from Australia. What sets Wisdom Works grass-fed beef apart is simple - alfalfa and clean water.
THE 'WISDOM WORKS' DIFFERENCE
*Wisdom Works beef is Montana Grown and Processed.
*Alfalfa is recognized by USDA as a qualified "Grass Fed" forage.
*Alfalfa is highly nutritious and develops naturally higher levels of Omega-3 and Conjugated Linoleic Acid, as well as significantly lower levels of monounsaturated fat than traditional grain finished beef.
*Alfalfa-finished beef develops a much better flavor profile and tenderness than traditional grass or grain-finished beef, and does not have the "gamey" or "grassy" flavor frequently associated with grass-finished beef.
*In addition to its great nutritional profile, alfalfa fixes both carbon and nitrogen to the soil, thus reducing fertilizer inputs and significantly reducing the carbon impacts over grain-finished beef.
*Our beef is market weight and finished prior to 18 months, thus reducing the carbon footprint of the animal, and ultimately the consumer.
*Wisdom Works beef is pasture raised "happy beef" - then finished in a large paddock, with plenty of room to roam.
*Wisdom Works beef is finished on clean, cold and fresh Big Hole Valley groundwater - with no metallic iron, sulfur or swampy aroma or flavor.
