Why Montana Made Meats



Gone are the days when shoppers simply grabbed a carton of eggs, a container of milk or a package of meat. Today, people are interested in – and concerned about – what they eat, and what they feed their families. The public’s level of concern about what they introduce into their bodies is growing rapidly. Whether you’re feeding a family, a restaurant full of trusting patrons or stocking a grocery store – you need to serve the very best foods. The best for taste, and the best for health.

Montana Made Meats raises Montana Beef and we take pride in raising our animals and ensure the best quality beef with no hormones or added preservatives. 

Our Montana Beef is raised hormone-free, and is free-ranged grazing on our lush Montana pastures. We only supplement the herd’s diet with healthy, natural feeds that promote healthy cattle and lean, rich Montana Beef: fresh, protein-rich alfalfa that we grow ourselves. Our herds drink from streams, rivers and freshwater ponds. Our Montana Beef is raised gently, to keep the meat tasting fresh, delicious and tender, and to prevent undesirable flavors and textures


          Our Grass-Finished Beef is:

  • 100% grass-fed & finished in Montana
  • Is grown without added hormones or antibiotics
  • Dry-aged 10-14 days for optimal flavor & tenderness
  • Has a healthier fat profile - grass-fed beef is higher in Omega 3 fatty acids and Conjugated Linoleic Acids (CLAs)

         Our Grain-Finished Beef is:

  • Is more nutrient dense and flavorful - Cattle that finish more slowly on more diverse landscapes transfer that biochemical richness to their meat
  • Has a more marbled look 
  • Dry-Aged 10-14 days for optimal flavor & tenderness


Frequently Asked Questions??


What does the process look like once I've put my deposit down on a beef?

Once you have put a deposit down and spoken to me about beef I will let you know of an estimated kill date. Once the beef is brought to the processor it will hang and dry age for 10-14 days. During that time I will be in contact with you about how you want your beef processed and the final weight of your beef. The beef is customized to how you want it (steaks, roasts, short ribs, burger 80/20, and more). After an estimated two weeks I will go pick up the beef from the processor and deliver it to you. 

What is the turnaround time after I order beef?

After the beef is slaughtered, they will need to dry-age for 10-14 days and then will be cut and wrapped. Turnaround time is estimated at two weeks from kill date.
