Ritas Natural Beef of Major County, Oklahoma uses no growth hormones, growth promotants, or enhancements of any kind on any of its cattle at any time during their lives. 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. Records are maintained that allow us to be sure that sick and subsequently treated cattle are never sold under the Ritas Natural Beef label. All cattle are worked and treated through our local animal veterinary clinic. Our cattle never receive any feed that contains any antibiotics, growth hormones, animal product or animal by-products.

Our calves consume grass and forage and their mothers milk prior to weaning. The calves are born on native ranch grasses common in the local area. Some of these include Little Blue, Big Blue, Buffalo, Western Wheat, Brome, Foxtail, Side Oats Grama, and Bermuda.. Their diet is supplemented during the winter months with Wheat Pasture, Alfalfa, Bermuda Hay, and Bluegrass Hay, Crimped Milo or Crimped Corn. We supplement their diet with additional salt and trace minerals. Any and all feed is classified as natural feed that is supplemented to there diets. Their final diet during the finishing stage is Crimped Corn, Alfalfa, Bermuda or Blue Stem Hay. Our primary objective is to produce a high quality beef product restricting all antibiotics, growth hormones, and any animal products or by-products. These high standards allow us to produce a class of natural beef produce.
