WELCOME TO RIVERBEND MEATS
COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
Riverbend Meats offers unmatched quality for several reasons. One reason is that we have the nation’s only fully integrated beef operation of any size. We control the entire process from start to finish, including breeding, the development of the animal every day of its life, raising the feed that is fed to the animal, the actual harvesting of the animal, and the processing of the beef. This allows us to offer a product that is far superior to any of our competitors.
Quality of Animals
Over the past 27 years, we have spent millions of dollars selecting and investing in individual Angus cows that have proven to be outliers in beef flavor and tenderness. They are the foundation of our herd. We now have thousands of cattle with those very special genetics, providing us with a vastly superior product.
Quality of Processing
We own and operate our own 210,000-square-foot processing facility located right on the ranch. It is one of the most state-of-the-art processing facilities in the United States, including a 780,000-cubic-foot cooler.
Commitment to the Land
We focus on sustainable practices, from farming and ranching to processing. For example, nothing goes to waste in our processing facility! We capture the water and reuse it for irrigation. Gases from the water treatment are recycled as fuel to heat the plant. And our extensive composting operation transforms the plant’s by-product into fertilizer.
By owning and controlling every step of the process, we not only ensure maximum quality but also deliver unbeatable value!
In stark contrast to industrial beef manufacturers, Riverbend Meats is dedicated to using sustainable practices and protecting and preserving our fragile ecosystem and the planet we all call home.
The health and quality of life of our cattle have a significant impact on the quality of our product. Humane treatment of our cattle is an important part of providing your family with healthy, sustainable beef.
Raised With Their Mothers
Riverbend Meats’ calves are born in the spring and stay with their mothers from the day they are born. They grow up romping on rangeland and spend their second year roaming free in high mountain meadows.
No Growth Hormones
We don’t use growth hormones to make our cattle grow faster. The superior genetics of our cow herd give our calves all of the advantage they need to mature naturally without growth hormones. Our animals are NEVER EVER given growth hormones—guaranteed!
In stark contrast to industrial beef manufacturers, Riverbend Ranch Steaks is dedicated to using sustainable practices and protecting and preserving our fragile ecosystem and the planet we all call home.
Not even a single acre of land was clear-cut for our ranches. Instead, we use the natural rangelands found across five Western states.
Using cattle to graze existing grasslands stimulates continual plant growth, which pulls carbon from the atmosphere and produces more oxygen.
By using cattle to keep natural grasses in check, we also drastically reduce the chances of wildfires and help contain the fires that do occur. This not only preserves the vegetation but prevents the release of more carbon into the atmosphere.
