Know Your Beef

Beef With a Background

At Roseda, we oversee the life of our animals from birth to your fork. Our prestigious genetics program ensures that all of our cattle are bred from genetics selected to produce outstanding quality beef.

Healthy Upbringing

Try a Little Tenderness

After being weaned at seven months, our cattle graze from fresh green pastures for most of their lives. They are then placed on a wholesome diet of chopped corn plants and kernels, hay, alfalfa, soybean meal, vitamins, and fresh water. We never use hormones, chemical additives, or antibiotics unless medically necessary for animal husbandry.

Exceptional Taste

The Dry-Age Difference

  1. Did you know that you can experience that great juicy, steak-like experience from eating a Roseda burger? It’s true! We take an extra step that most people in the industry skip: Dry-aging.

  2. Dry-aging is a process that entails keeping our carcasses in a regulated-humidity, refrigerated cooler for 14–21 days after harvest. This extra time allows for some of the moisture in the carcass to evaporate, and for enzymes to break down some of the more fibrous tissue, leaving behind more tender meat with a rich, beefy flavor.

  3. Some other companies occasionally dry-age their prime cuts, but most of them skip this step altogether because it’s costly and takes up too much refrigerated space. At Roseda, we’re willing to take the extra time and incur the extra expense—because we know that it’s the difference between a good burger and a great one.
