The Lazy P Ranch in northern Colorado offers a very unique way to put naturally raised, home-grown beef on the family table. The cattle are born on the ranch and are raised without the use of chemicals, hormones, or antibiotics. The cattle at the Lazy P Ranch are allowed to graze freely with minimal confinement as they are rotated through irrigated pastures. This practice keeps both the cattle and the pasture in top condition at all times by never putting either in a stressful situation.
Families visit the ranch and pick an individual calf that will be tagged with their name. As the animal matures on the grass pasture, it is supplemented with quality, home-grown feed. Families are encouraged to visit the ranch throughout the feeding process and watch as their beef is grown and finished to optimal weight and condition. When a family’s animal approaches the end of the feeding process, the family works one on one with the meat processor of their choice to ensure they receive the cuts and package weights that best fit their needs. Since the Lazy P herd is relatively small, each animal is given the best care possible with the emphasis on quality rather than quantity.
