Oxbow Cows are Happy Cows

We take pride in the way we treat and handle our cows.  This means we handle them without undue stress, provide them as good of home as possible, and watch over them closely.

We raise and purchase grain-free, hormone-free, and antibiotic-free cattle.  In 2014, we began raising our own cattle, which will be the future and mainstay of our herd.  The cattle we do purchase are from respected cow-calf ranches in the Bitterroot, Drummond, Blackfoot, and Deer Lodge Valleys. The lasting, positive relationships we build with these traditional ranchers involves them in the process of providing local food and ensures that we can bring the best quality animals to our customers.
