To kick off American Meat Month, we’re featuring our favorite brand of American meat: Strube Ranch. You will find Strube Ranch on the professional BBQ circuit, backyard barbecues and Big Poppa’s grill. Strube Ranch has perfected raising beef and delivering a delicious product. Located in the heart of East Texas cattle country, the Strube family has dedicated their livelihood to the production of beef cattle. For over 100 years, this family owned and operated business has pledged to produce the finest quality and healthiest beef possible.
What’s their secret?
When the Strube family first began their business, they sought out the world’s finest breed stock. What they discovered was the Japanese Wagyu, also known as the famous Kobe beef. Japanese Wagyu is world renown because the Japanese have devoted extraordinary care and attention towards their cattle. Due to this care and devotion, the beef produced by the Wagyu breed is extremely tender and tasty, with a concentration of flavor that arguably exceeds that of common breeds.
Quality vs. quantity
Strube ranch raise their cattle to have diets that mimic the Japanese Wagyu. In contrast to most cattle ranches, Wagyu beef requires farmers to concentrate more on the quality of the meat rather than the quantity. Strube Ranch achieves this by raising cattle without hormones or antibiotics. The farmers provide quality, minimally processed grain when feeding the cattle. Additionally, the cattle are fed healthy free choice grain rations, complete minerals and clean water. Strube Ranch also vows to never have animal by-products in their cattle feed. Influenced by Japan’s cattle-raising culture, Strube ranch’s best practices result in one of the most
premium beefs available in the U.S.
