A local Wisconsin farmer-owned cooperative
The Wisconsin Grass-fed Beef Cooperative is made up of about 190 Wisconsin family farms who believe that rotationally grazing cattle is the most natural way to raise healthy, tasty beef. We raise old world British breeds such as Devon, Angus, Galloway, White Park, Hereford and others proven to be hearty and thrive on an all-forage diet.
Low-stress handling and rotational grazing keep both the cattle and the pastures healthy, so antibiotics and growth hormones aren’t used on cattle marketed through the co-op for beef. Calves stay with the cows longer, and learn natural grazing behavior from their mothers. Our well-managed pastures protect soil and water resources and provide wildlife habitat. We care about that, because we live here, too!
All management and business decisions are made by the farmers who own the cooperative, and all profits are returned to the farmers – not out-of-state stockholders. Join farmers from around the state who are bringing premium grass-fed beef to Wisconsin families! If this sounds like the way you’d like to farm, and you’d like ownership in a statewide brand, become a member-owner of the Wisconsin Grass-fed Beef Co-op – entering our 10th year in 2018!
Local, farmer-owned cooperative – producer benefits include:
• Ownership in a regional brand of premium beef.
• Our producers help determine their own fair pay price.
• Patronage dividends and trucking allowance for finished cattle.
• Educational and networking opportunities.
• Buy and sell breeding stock, calves, and stockers among members with a standard protocol and similar genetics.
Join us and earn a 20%+ premium over conventional pricing for Wisconsin raised and finished 100% grass-fed beef cattle.
