Pure Wyoming Grass Fed Beef
- The best beef in the West, or maybe better!
- No antibiotics
- No hormones
- Cattle drink Pure Wyoming Water
- All cattle are born & raised on the Francis Ranch in Laramie County, Wyoming
The Francis Ranch has been raising and selling beef direct to consumers for over 30 years. No antibiotics or growth hormones are given to the cattle at any time. If a calf is treated with an antibiotic, it’s made ineligible for the Pure Wyoming Beef program.
All of these cattle are born and raised on the Francis Ranch. They eat native range grasses except for the last 3 months or so, when they are fed a corn-based ration to improve tenderness and flavor.
Pricing: Pure Wyoming Grass Fed Beef is sold on a live weight basis. We will be charging $1.35 per pound. The beef is available as a quarter, half beef, or a whole. Processing costs $0.50 to $0.60 per pound of carcass weight, (About 62% of the live weight) plus $50 per animal. This adds up to a cost of about $4.75 per pound of beef in your freezer. We offer a $25 credit for each customer that you refer who buys ½ beef or more.
Payment: We require a $75 deposit to reserve a 1/2 beef, $50 for a 1/4 or $125 for a whole beef. The balance is due when the animal is delivered to the processor. The processor will charge you for their services. We accept Visa, Mastercard and honorable checks.
