Important: Please read this full disclosure statement regarding this beef. This steer is NON organic. Here's why: as a calf, he was given non certified milk replacer when his mom couldn't provide enough milk. As a result, we couldn't certify him as organic. After this calf weaned itself from mom, he lived his entire life on our certified organic pastures. He never had antibiotics or hormones.
