At Dandaragan Organic Beef we believe in treating our cattle with respect, working in harmony with the land and delivering a sustainable product that is both healthy and tasty.
which means no use of pesticides, artificial fertilisers, hormones or antibiotics. Instead we use organic farming principles, grazing methods that mimic those of wild herding animals, perennial pastures and low stress stock handling methods. We also apply compost and plant hundreds of trees each year.
Soil & pastures
Producing healthy beef starts with creating healthy soil. Soils balanced with natural minerals and full of microbes will create nutritious pastures, healthy cattle and in turn tasty beef brimming with essential vitamins and minerals along with high levels of omega 3 fats. By using cell grazing methods and planting out more of the farm to perennial pastures our precious topsoil is always protected by pasture cover, which in turn protects soil microbes, builds up humus and prevents erosion. Cell grazing, which basically mimics the natural grazing patterns of large herding animals, allows grasses to grow taller and their roots longer and deeper, which is better for the soil and the cattle.
