Simply Natural Start to Finish

For naturally nurtured, quality beef, we have a few simple rules:

  • Fed a vegetarian diet. Cattle eat a vegetarian diet of top-quality grains, forages and essential nutrients.
  • Never given antibiotics. Cattle receive treatment when needed to restore health, but they are no longer eligible to earn the brand’s Natural label.
  • Never given hormones. Cattle growth comes at the rate prescribed by Mother Nature.

Farmers raising cattle for Certified Angus Beef ® brand Natural know you care how your beef is produced, and they care, too. They worry about many things—their land, their legacy and, most of all, their cattle—so you don’t have to.

Meet the Farmers

Farming at nature’s pace is a calling for a select few. They appreciate the responsibility they have to treat animals with absolute care and respect. They also treasure the land, water and sky we share and hold dear for future generations.

Is it easy to raise beef this way? No. No one ever said that doing the right thing is easy. But when guided by intent and integrity, it’s a commitment that comes naturally.
