Rather than purchasing by volume and then sorting the carcasses, we choose cattle to fit our high standards for eating experience. As a regional packer, we make sure the rail space is filled with cattle that fit the program, it also ensures that everything we produce is of the highest quality. With our Elite Angus brand, you can be sure you’re getting the finest cut of Angus beef on the market.
The USDA Inspector/Graders with the AMS, evaluate the carcasses for quality grade: based on marbling, within the muscle, and the age of the carcass. Marbling is what gives beef its signature tenderness, juiciness and flavor. Carcasses are also evaluated with a yield grade which is based on the percentage of lean muscle to fat and bone.
