Oak Hill is a family owned farm in Meriwether County near Greenville, GA. Jean and I founded Oak Hill Cattle Company when our grandson Colton was diagnosed with a beef allergy, in an attempt to produce a healthier product for our family. We started with a single calf, raising it on a diet free of hormones and antibiotics, to determine if the allergy was due to the beef itself or the presence of additives and preservatives found in store bought products. We were pleased to find that Colton has not had an allergic reaction to any of the beef we have produced since.

We have now decided to market our beef directly to the public so your family can experience the same healthy, sustainable, additive free product that we enjoy. We welcome you to visit our farm for yourself, and even hand pick the calf of your choice to fulfill your needs. Feedback on your purchase is welcome and encouraged as we strive to create repeat customers who appreciate the quality and taste of our product.

Our Method

Our calves are all born at Oak Hill and are bred from our own herd of Angus cows and a Hereford bull. We believe this combination provides the ideal genetics to produce large steaks, while not compromising the taste of choice Mid-western beef. From birth to slaughter our calves are never given antibiotics or hormones. They are given vaccinations and supplements to protect against known cattle diseases at 6 months of age and a booster at 9 months. From birth, the calves stay with their mothers for the first 6-7 months. Once weaned, they graze grass for the next 4 months, which allows their structural framework to mature. For the following 6 months the steers are fed a grain ration comprised of ground corn, cottonseed hulls/meal, soybean hulls and a daily vitamin package. This step enhances the quality and taste of the beef. Throughout this entire process the steers have free- range access to hay and water.

Processing, Aging and Yield

Our steers are processed at Jeffers Meat Processing, a family owned butcher in Buchanan, GA. Our partnership with Jeffers allows Oak Hill Cattle customers the ability to place a custom order tailored to their specific cut, thickness and aging preferences. To see a chart showing the available cuts of beef, see the area of our website “How to Place an Order”.

Aging is a process where the beef is hung in a climate controlled cooler to allow the natural enzymes inside the meat to break down providing texture and flavor. Typically our beef is aged for 14 days, but further aging is available at no additional charge. Most steaks at an upscale restaurant will have been aged for 21 days. However, the additional aging will further dry the meat which will yield lower weight but will add flavor.

Most steers will weigh around 1200 lbs by the time they are ready for processing. Once dressed they will weigh 60%-65% of their live weight which will then yield approximately 30%-33% of their live weight in boneless packaged beef. As an example, the last steer we processed weighed 1200 lbs. When the beef was hung for aging it weighed 780 lbs; it then yielded 410 lbs of boneless beef after being aged for 14 days.

There are a lot of misconceptions to be found about the raising and processing of beef today, especially on the internet. I hope that the information I have provided will allow you and your neighbors to make a more informed decision about the quality of beef you choose for your family. Thank you for considering Oak Hill Cattle.
