Sustainable Beef Farming at Brandt Beef

As consumers become increasingly concerned about the use of antibiotics and hormones in commercial cattle ranching, all natural sustainable beef farming has become a more popular choice when it comes to premium natural beef products. Brandt Beef, a leader in sustainable beef production, has pioneered the use of both natural methods and modern technology to maintain high standards of safety, consistency and quality.

Sustainable Beef Farming at Brandt Beef

Based in Brawley, California, Brandt Beef has been in the commercial ranching business since the end of World War II. Since then the Brandt family has employed a combination of new technology and old fashioned ways in its approach to sustainable beef farming. For instance, Brandt Beef has adopted the Datastar Global Track system that uses radio frequency imaging, optical scanning and satellite imaging to monitor every beef product from farm to fork. This system allows Brandt Beef to not only certify the all natural production of its meat, but to also respond quickly and efficiently to contaminants, spoilage or other potential hazards.

When it comes to feeding the animals, Brandt Beef takes a decidedly low-tech yet equally effective approach. Ladybugs, burrowing owls and other native predators are used to keep insect and vermin low, so there's no need for pesticides. The alfalfa on the Brandt farms is fertilized with compost that is sourced from the animals themselves. As you can see, Brandt Beef truly runs an all natural farm to fork California operation.
