Dykshoorn Farms is taking the steps to become Verified Beef Producers. This enables us to publicly demonstrate our commitment to being responsible stewards of our Cattle and the Enviroment.
Our Cattle are Pasture Raised on Nutrient Rich Native Grasses, and Lush Tame Grass as the conditions allow, then slowly Finished on Grasses and Rolled Barley which we grow right here on Dykshoorn Farms. We find this combination of finishing them slowly on Grass and Barley leads to more Marbling, which means more Flavor and Tenderness.
*We do not use Antibiotics in any of our feed. That being said, if we have a sick animal we will administer antibiotics if needed... However in Canada we have Strict Guidelines which need to be met before that animal can be harvested. We abide by these rules, and can back this up by our records.
Our animals are never fed any animal by-products
Our Animals are Harvested at a Prairie Meats in Coaldale, which is Humane Handling Certified. This certification was approved by the Animal Welfare Approved Organisation in Humane Handling Practices. For more information go to https://animalwelfareapproved....
We Dry Age our Beef for 21 days. This gives the meat even more Flavor, and Tenderness.
