For the farming and ranching families behind the best beef, respect isn’t an afterthought. Respect is everything. Respect for the cattle. Respect for the land. Respect for delivering the best beef for your tables.

High-Quality Beef. High-Quality Care.

High-quality beef doesn’t just happen. It’s a way of life for the family farmers and ranchers raising Certified Angus Beef ®, prioritizing the best animal care for Angus cattle. These families are dedicated to their herds, making cattle care and animal welfare their top priority. They are committed to raising the best beef, the right way.

Our animals are our number one priority at this place. They’re our livelihood. That’s why we do what we do. It’s our duty to take the best care that we can of them. Beef Quality Assurance is our way of assuring that the animals are raised properly to the best of our ability and producing the highest-quality product that we can.Shannon Wharton, Wharton 3C Cattle, Kansas
