No Antibiotics or Drugs

Animals are never fed antibiotics or drugs. The animals are never treated with antibiotics unless they are in a life threatening situation which the veterinarian recommends. If an animal is treated, we double the withdraw period that is recommended from the veterinarian before harvest. We almost never have this situation, because the animals live in such a healthy environment. We feel it is ethical to treat an animal if necessary to prevent death.

Pasture Raised

The animals are always are on pasture during grazing season. Due to Midwest weather, at times animals are moved to shelter areas with feed and ability to roam freely. We feel it is ethical to move the animals shelter to stay warm and dry during cold and rainy seasons.
