Rueffer Ranch has made animal health a pivotal point in providing the most humane thoughtfully-sourced beef. We believe our model promotes sustainability and the cleanest beef. Calves roam with their mothers their entire life, nursing and grazing beside her. They are born in the spring and harvested in the fall which is a natural pattern in nature. On harvest day we deliver our animals to the processor early in morning so we are first in line. Every effort is made to minimize stress and not transport the animal long distances.
