Rheintal has a herd of about 40 to 50 steers and works with more than eight certified organic producers, using the same standards. The majority of the races are composed of a hybrid of three species of cattle: The breeding females are a mix of Hereford and Simmental. The reproductive male is a purebred Angus. This mix provides a meat that’s both tender and lean with a nice marbling. This genetic mix maximizes the qualities of these three breeds and produces delicious meat for all palates. Rheintal cares about the welfare of the animals. No antibiotics or growth hormones are used, and animals are provided with natural living conditions. The diet of Rheintal beef is organic forages, a mixture of legumes (clover, alfalfa, birdsfoot trefoil) and grasses (timothy, bromegrass, fescue, ryegrass). This assures the best quality meat, rich in vitamin E, linoleic acids (Omega-3s) and free of chemicals, growth hormones and GMOs.
