FAQ

Here we will answer all your questions about Case Custom Meats

What is the difference between Grain finished and Grass Finished?

Grass finished animals are finished (90 days prior to harvest) solely on grass or hay. No grains of any kind. Our grain finished animals (Beef and Lamb) are supplemented with ground corn the 90-120 days prior to harvest. Case Custom Meats offers both types of beef. Be an informed consumer and take time to do your research. More info can be found here.

Do you use hormones or antibiotics?

No meat products are truly "hormone free". Hormones are naturally occurring regulatory substances within an animal. However, we do not add any synthetic hormones into our feed to promote growth. Nor do we implant our animals with any hormones. Case Custom Meats goes above and beyond to make sure our animals stay healthy. We do not add any antibiotics to our feed. If an animal gets sick we work closely with our Veterinarian to take appropriate action. Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) guidelines are followed for placement of injection, accurate records are taken and a strict antibiotic withdrawal timeline is followed. 99% of our animals never receive an antibiotic injection.

What kind of packaging does the meat come in?

All of our products are flash frozen and vacuum sealed.
