Snake River Farms Wagyu/Angus cross cattle are raised along the high plain of the Snake River in Eastern Idaho. Our proprietary herd is one of the most highly regarded groups of American Wagyu cattle in the world. We have adopted many aspects of the heritage-steeped Japanese feeding method which takes up to four times longer than traditional U.S. cattle production methods. The result is stunningly beautiful beef that’s extremely tender, intensely flavorful, and a one of a kind dining experience.

Our own research shows that the fodder is high in protein and energy, and feeding 3-5% of a beasts body weight per head per day plus some roughage is the best ration to use. Fodder Solutions has conducted several trials feed lotting angus and angus cross cattle with great success.

We have been raising beef cattle on pasture for over 25 years. In the past these were either sold into the standard commercial beef system or finished out on pasture for our personal consumption. In 2010 we started selling pasture finished beef directly to consumers. Our herd is primarily composed of Angus and Angus cross cattle with a few Herfords and Charolais crosses.In Temple Grandin's studies at CSU she looked at the effect of temperament on dark cutters, adding more cattle to her original weight gain study group, plus additional data on Angus, Hereford, Hereford cross and Tarentaise-Angus cross cattle. The results showed that cattle with the wildest temperament had the highest incidence of dark cutters; 25 percent of cattle with a score of 5 (wildest) were dark cutters, while less than 5 percent of those in the 1 to 4 ranking were dark cutters. Her research also found that heifers with wild temperament were more likely than steers to be dark cutters. Heifers, due to estrus activity--and bulls, due to testosterone--produce more dark cutters than steers.For nearly 25 years, discriminating chefs and restaurant patrons who have prepared and dined on Maverick Ranch Natural* Choice Beef rave at the tenderness and flavor.

Mother cows are grazed and rotated between pastures. Calves are raised on their mothers and grass until 7 to 8 months of age. After weaning they are on pasture and a forage diet with a small amount of grain for 4 to 7 months. At 13 to 16 months of age they are placed on a forage and grain diet for 120 to 150 days and finished. This is in contrast to most Shenandoah Valley farms. Most cattle are weaned at six to eight months and shipped elsewhere to be raised and finished on grain prior to slaughter.
