About Us

A member owned and managed, vertically integrated beef marketing Co-op created to retain profits from each phase of cattle production for its members.

Missouri’s Best Beef, Co-Op, is a vertically integrated - from birth through marketing - beef operation created to generate and retain profits for its member/owners. The independent Co-Op utilizes existing member facilities at each step and requires no capital investment. This Co-Operative functions as a true, agricultural cooperative, not for profit, corporation formed and owned by its members - one member, one vote - governed by a Board of Directors elected by the membership.

We are truly unique - no other company in the United States offers this entire program and single ownership, single source and single responsibility from birth to the consumer’s shopping bag. We know our cows. We breed them naturally; we raise our calves naturally on grass; we supplement their diet with natural corn, soybeans and minerals; and they are all cared for as the living, feeling beings they are. We really care about our way of life, our families, our animals, our environment and allowing the equally caring consumer the benefit of the best quality beef raised the way it should be - Naturally.

The Beef Co-Operative member delivers preconditioned (to Co-Op requirements) feeder calf stock to a Co-Op owned and operated Feeding Facility. The animals are then trucked to, and processed at, a Co-Op owned and operated Processing Facility to customer specifications - the entire operation by Co-Op members. At product delivery, the Invoice lists the members name and animal tag number(s) being delivered. All procedures for breeding, identifying, vaccinating, feeding, handling, general husbandry and processing are in accordance with Co-Op Bylaws that meet or exceed all State, Federal and established standards.

The entire operation is one of true natural, source verified beef - no antibiotics, implants, feed additives or chemicals of any kind, at any time - ever. Animal's not meeting grade requirements for our Natural, Co-Op private label (or having been treated with antibiotics) do not enter the product stream.
