First of all we'd like to thank Shain for inviting us to introduce ourselves to this group. Our names are Joe and Kay Lynn Nield. We have 7 children and live west of Afton on the Salt River. We are the fifth generation to live and work on this ranch. Our goal is to continue to operate a viable ranching operation here in Star Valley for our children and future generations. While we maintain a commercial cow calf operation, we would like to provide more beef locally. We have done this the last few years for friends and family, with good results, we also provide beef for Rulon's Burger Barn.
Our beef is produced naturally, meaning we don't use growth promotants or antibiotics. We have finished cattle using a traditional corn, barley and molasses ration. We have also finished cattle on an all forage ration, which means no grains anytime just grass and long stemmed hay. We have had good results with both, but are concentrating our efforts on a grass finished product due to its increased health benefits, and it can be produced in a more sustainable manner than a grain fed product.
Our beef is processed at Theurer's Custom Meats in Lewiston, Utah. They are federally inspected, family owned and operated plant.
If you are interested in our beef or have any questions about our operation or management practices, feel free to call or email us, we'll do our best to help you.
