Processed With Care
Animals are processed on-farm for absolute minimal stress. They are not shipped anywhere before slaughter, and receive the careful and compassionate treatment they deserve, every step of the way. In fact, you can come to St. Francis, Kansas and see for yourself - seriously.
A USDA approved and inspected processing unit at Callicrate Cattle Co. follows the ‘Humane Methods of Slaughter Act 1978’ and provides on-site harvest. With on-site processing, animals on the Callicrate ranch are walked or moved a very short distance to harvest, avoiding the travel stress of trucking. USDA/FSIS monitors and audits humane treatment and handling of animals and food safety inspections before, during and after harvest.
