"Our Family is Committed to Bringing you the Best Quality and Flavor in our Selection of Beef Products."
- Jerry Armstrong, Owner
A FAMILY TRADITION
Over the last forty-six years, Diamond A Ranch has been providing high-quality cattle in both the registered and commercial markets, as well as purchasing additional top-quality calves from local ranchers to precondition and grow as stocker cattle.
In 2016, Diamond A Ranch, located in Dime Box, Texas, decided to take its operations one step further and began a new venture - Diamond A Ranch Beef - which is owned and operated by Jerry and Julie Armstrong and their family. The vision of providing customers with the same premium beef they feed their own family and friends then became a reality.
The process begins by hand-selecting top calves. They are raised on pasture and supplemented with salvaged fruits and vegetables from local grocery stores. The cattle are then finished on a diet that includes locally grown and recycled grains. The result is a natural, tender, and flavorful product that provides an exceptional dining experience.
"Even though we have been producing cattle since 1974, providing beef to customers has been a very personally rewarding experience. Our customers can be confident in knowing where and how their beef is raised. We 'Taste the Difference' and are confident you will too!"
- J. Armstrong
How are cattle raised at Diamond A Ranch?
7 to 10 month old calves are weaned from their mothers and brought into our preconditioning pens where they are supplemented with a balanced, high roughage diet to help with the transition away from their dam.
After approximately thirty days these calves are sent back to the pasture and allowed to graze in addition to receiving a balanced grower ration daily to help level out the consistency of the grass and allow them to grow and stay healthy.
At approximately 800 lbs., the calves that meet the criteria for the beef program are then transitioned to our finisher diet for approximately 150 days to eventually become Diamond A Ranch Beef.
How are the cattle handled at Diamond A Ranch?
Cattle are handled with low stress management practices and facilities are designed with that in mind. All cattle are checked daily by horseback and any calves needing attention are quietly sorted out and walked to the pens.
The welfare and well-being of our cattle is always our foremost consideration.
How are cattle harvested at Diamond A Ranch?
The cattle are monitored and selected for harvest when they have achieved full growth without extra fat cover.
The calves are processed at a state inspected facility, where the carcasses hang for 14 days to age the meat for optimum tenderness and flavor.
Do Diamond A Ranch cattle receive antibiotics?
Calves that require injectable antibiotics are not selected for Diamond A Ranch's Beef program.
Do Diamond A Ranch cattle receive hormones?
Hormones are not utilized in the Diamond A Ranch Beef finishing phase.
