Red Star Ranch is located along the Snake River canyon in south-central Idaho. The land was originally settled by our great-grandfather in the 1940’s. Today as 4th generation farmers, we are continually seeking innovative ways to improve and sustain the proud traditions of agriculture in our family. This search has led us to combine new technology with historical practices. On the farm you can find GPS technology and the latest strip-till implement running in a field next to livestock grazing on non-GMO cover crop pastures.
Today we maintain a herd of Angus cattle, a drove of pigs and seasonally a flock of pastured poultry. We seek a combination of genetics that are a perfect fit for a low input system and thrive on our forage and grass pastures year-round. We do not use antibiotics and feed non-GMO, locally grown forage if pasture levels run low.
Cattle: Our system relies on plentiful pasture and low stress to keep our animals healthy. Our cattle are 100% grass-fed and grass-finished. We administer one vaccine (modified live) to our breeding stock. Our finishing steers do not receive any vaccinations.
Pigs: Our pigs do not receive any vaccinations. They are free to roam in a large enclosure and are fed a non-GMO, non-soy grain mix that we mill on our own farm.
Poultry: Our poultry do not receive any vaccinations. They are free to roam in a large enclosure and are fed a non-GMO, non-soy grain mix that we mill on our own farm.
