Uphold high integrity and transparency into our operation and the beef products we produce. We implement sustainable business and environmental stewardship practices to conserve the quality of the land and protect the quality and health of our cattle.
Cincy Beef is a family-owned operation that provides locally raised, high quality beef. Josh and Sarah Ison along with Sarah’s parents, Jamie and Leah Hazenfield, own and operate L&L Farm Holdings LLC, which produce cattle for Cincy Beef, in Moscow, Ohio. L&L Farm Holdings is a cow-calf operation that raises high quality Angus cattle.
Josh and Sarah’s love and passion for cattle and agriculture runs deep. Growing up raising livestock, Josh and Sarah pursued agricultural degrees. They both obtained their Ph.D.s in Animal Science, focusing in pre-harvest food safety and epidemiology; demonstrating their commitment to food safety and providing a local quality beef product.
How Our Cattle Are Raised
All of our cows are raised on pasture and supplemented with hay, that is produced on our farm, in the winter (when the grass is dormant).
Cows are bred to deliver calves in the fall.
- Cattle are not administered hormones/ steroids.
Animal health and welfare is the top concern when it comes to breeding and raising our Cincy Beef cattle. For this reason, our cattle only receive antibiotics when it is medically necessary to treat a clinical infection. We have an established veterinarian-client-patient relationship and work closely with our local veterinarians to ensure that the best course of treatment is followed to keep our cattle healthy.
Our 2017 Cincy Beef cattle have never received antibiotics.
The beef cattle graze on pasture and receive free choice of a balanced feed ration in addition to pasture and hay the last three to four months prior to harvest.
To produce the highest quality of meat, beef cattle are butchered at their optimal age (approximately 19-21 months old).
We collaborate with Trackside Butcher Shoppe in Campbellsburg, KY, a United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) fully inspected facility, to process all of our Cincy Beef.
