OUR CATTLE, OUR BEEF
We believe that the beef from Ovoka is as good as it gets. We personally raise and care for our animals to ensure the best and most humane life at Ovoka. Our animals have vast expanses in which to openly roam and feed on the variety of native Virginia grasses. Deep running aquifers supply the land and our animals fresh water year-round. Our cattle are finished on all-natural and non-GMO grains, custom blended by industry-leading experts for our Wagyu's special dietary needs at their various stages of life and to maximize nutrition.
On the rare occasion one of our animals needs antibiotics, that animal is removed from our meat program and receives the care it requires. Our cattle pastures feature hundreds of trees and open-air shelters, allowing our herd to remain outside at all times, and never on concrete or unsanitary and inhumane feedlots.
We strive to provide a low-stress environment, abundant in resources that the animals need to live and grow naturally. We have found that the respect and care put into raising the animals the right way is good for the soul and also leads to the finest meats possible. Proper stewardship of our animals is a responsibility that we take seriously.
