Our cattle are never fed, given or administered in any form of sub-therapeutic antibiotics. Any sick cattle that are treated with antibiotics are immediately removed from the Ritas Natural Beef program and either sold or marketed elsewhere and not under the Ritas Natural Beef name or label. This is assured through our identification process and record keeping in which all animals are tagged and numbered with ID (identification) tags.
