Crispin Grass-Fed Beef is a family owned and operated farm and ranch in Western Oklahoma near Thomas. We operate farms in both Dewey and Custer counties. My great-grandfather came to this area in 1897 and our family has been raising cattle since that time. So our family has been in the cattle business for well over 100 years in this area. Over the years, we have primarily been in the commercial cow-calf aspect of the industry. We have normally sold our calves after the stocker phase to be fattened in commercial feedlots.
During the past few years, I believe a new trend is developing and will develop further in the American cattle and food industry. The American consumer is becoming much more health oriented and more conscious about what they feed their family and where it was produced. They want to know the origin of their food and they want to know that it is safe for their families to eat.
New research in the food industry is indicating that grass-fed beef, just as my great-grandfather raised over 100 years ago and fed to our family, may be a great choice. This research seems to indicate several substantial health benefits for grass-fed beef. Grass-fed beef requires different genetics than the genetics required for present day commercial beef production. Most present day genetics will not allow an animal to fatten to a satisfactory grade to provide the eating quality that the consumer wants and demands for their family, on grass alone. We use Murray Grey cattle, which are a grass-fed breed that will provide great eating qualities and will finish on grass alone. Our cattle have been selected to have a "natural" tenderness gene that most cattle don't have.
We market Crispin Grass-Fed Beef to the consumer in Central and Western Oklahoma.
We at Crispin Grass-Fed Beef are changing our genetics and marketing strategy to meet the anticipated huge demand for healthy, tender, great tasting Grass-fed beef. We encourage you to try our beef. We guarantee satisfaction.
