There's a lot of misinformation out there about farming in general and beef in particular. We keep our Missouri beef healthy and they can help you, too.All beef isn't the same. The quality of the beef changes not just from country to country, but from farm to farm and year to year. No two animals are identical and can't be raised that way. Each requires care to ensure they stay the healthiest they possibly can, being well-fed and watered even when Mother Nature decides a drought is due.So this notion of a "factory farm" can't be further from the truth.

  • 1. Missouri Beef: How to Get and Stay HealthyTheres a lot of misinformation out there about farming ingeneral and beef in particular. We keep our Missouri beefhealthy and they can help you, too.All beef isnt the same. The quality of the beef changes notjust from country to country, but from farm to farm andyear to year. No two animals are identical and cant beraised that way. Each requires care to ensure they stay thehealthiest they possibly can, being well-fed and wateredeven when Mother Nature decides a drought is due.So this notion of a "factory farm" cant be further from thetruth. Im sure youve heard the horror stories or seen thevideos. Truth is, there are bad apples in every barrel. Andjust because there is a handful of crooked accountants orshifty CEOs of corporations doesnt mean that all of themare that way. (The jury is still out on lawyers, politicians,and used car salespeople...) But animals are live things andcannot be run on any assembly line, any more than a millcan churn out puppies. They have to be individually caredfor.Beef is as healthy as you know where it came from, what went in it, and how itwas processed. The meat you get from supermarkets is packaged to look as good aspossible, right down to the colors of the packaging and what color lights they use. Doesntmean it is going to make you fat or lean or somewhere in between.And all we can really testify to is how our own cattle are treated, what they are fed, and whatcondition they were in as we sent them to be processed.And if your mind is made up, we arent going to try to change it. But if you find something onour website interesting, that you didnt know before, please share it with your family andfriends. ---- For more data on raising pasture fed beef, as well as other information on prime beef as health food – visit http://worstellfarms.com Visit http://worstellfarms.com for more information.
  • 2. About Worstell FarmsOur family goes back on both sides withfarmers. As far as we can trace.And that tradition came to Mexico,Missouri around 1960 to purchase thecurrent farming operation.Jim and Laura Worstell established aworking farm there and then, and raised abig family of 8 kids, along with severaldogs, cats, and an occasional pet squirrelor raccoon. And dont forget the llamasand peacocks...In 2000, Robert Worstell returned to thefarm to take over operations management(as well as the day-to-day chores) andshares these duties with his mother and sister (well, not the chores, so much.)On approximately 250 acres of land, which is mixed hillsides, bottom, and woods, we raise acombination of annual row-crops and also our beef. Typical of this area, we have marginalland which is better suited to cattle than cultivation (which is typical of most cattle-farming).Weve found that where we run our cattle actually improves the soil and its health - as long aswe pay attention and actually manage how long and when they graze where. As we continue tostudy and learn about and from our cattle, our daily lessons help us to improve the quality andquantity of beef we raise.We practice managed grazing and are transitioning over to ultra-high-density stocking, as this is even better for the land and actually requires more cattle peracre to keep up with the lush growth and pasture renovation.All our beef is from local stock. Mostly black Angus cross-bred cows, with our current BeltedGalloway bull named "Gene Autry" is servicing these well.Ordering Our BeefWe only take local orders, so contact us via the website or call directly. Due to Federal laws,we cannot sell our beef out of Missouri – youll have to buy it here. Generally, our beef isspoken for well before its ready for processing. However, contact us for what we have comingup and we can give you an estimate on when the next one is coming available. We are also offering La Cense beef, which is USDA inspected and can be shipped anywhere in the US. Please see http://worstellfarms.com for details.
