The STRAUSS farmers carefully tend their cattle and land, producing authentic heritage-bred cattle. The cows grow up 100% grass-fed* and grass-finished** on open pasture, and graze slowly and patiently without any antibiotics or growth hormones. The resulting beef not only has a balanced marbling, it is low in saturated fat, cholesterol and total fat, with a good source of naturally occurring Omega 3.
Grass-fed * refers to cattle that were started on a grass diet and may receive supplemental grain feed or are finished on a fully grain-based diet. “Grass-fed” cows are not necessarily pasture-raised.
Grass-finished** refers to grass-finished beef that comes from cattle that ate nothing but grass and forage for their entire lives.

About STRAUSS Beef
The 3rd generation Strauss family farmers are passionate about the grass they grow; they take pride in their craft, driven by a strong ethical commitment to improve the welfare of their animals and the environment for the future. Their all-natural, biological, soil-balancing methods were created to “go beyond” organic. Born and raised in the US, the cattle are 100% grass-fed on open pastures (never feedlots) and are free of any antibiotics or growth hormones. Their farmers are also experts in the art of grass finishing — grazing their cattle slowly and patiently, to produce authentic, great-tasting, tender, marbled grass-fed beef for consumers and their families to savour.
- STRAUSS grass-fed beef is the highest quality, most exclusive grass-fed beef in the USA. Less than 250 animals a week are processed for STRAUSS’s exclusive programme at the Cargill 9400 plant. Of those, approx. 150 head per week will make the Choice and higher grade, which is what is sourced by Meats by Linz.
- The STRAUSS BEEF featured at THE STEAK HOUSE winebar + grill is produced from a single plant – ensuring quality and consistency of every primal piece. Each primal has been shipped in a printed, labeled bag that has all the raising standards printed on the film. Each box shows the point of origin – the Cargill 9400 packing plant, who custom process STRAUSS premium quality grass fed beef for the Strauss family.
- The cattle are raised in the heart of America’s upper Midwest, by independent family farmers. Beef cattle are approximately 28 months old when market ready. They are allowed time to mature more slowly so that their marbling can develop naturally, while the low-stress pasture-raising preserves their tenderness till market time.
- STRAUSS only accepts heritage-bred English breeds; and its farmers never utilise antibiotics or growth hormones to raise STRAUSS grass-fed beef cattle.
