The JHL is not content to tread along in the footsteps of its past nor
is it automatically throwing out the baby with the bath water.
TODAY work is continuing on four different product lines. Each of
these product lines is fully integrated and inseparable from the other:
The production of:
high quality replacement cows
high quality replacement bulls and
an eating experience that will meet and
exceed the needs of discriminating customers
We have these products in mind whether we are selling to the rancher
involved in a business with diminishing margins or the supermarket shopper.
TODAY. Ensure that the products
are raised in as natural a setting as possible. The JHL management plan
does not include man-made broadcast herbicides/pesticides or fertilizers.
The underlying ground water is as naturally filtered, pure and clear as
anywhere on earth.
TODAY. Utilize humane
livestock handling practices to provide a high quality product without
TODAY. Stay abreast of technology to
provide quality and ensure a safe meat supply for you. Careful supervision
from breeding to processing has been occurring since 1995.
TODAY. Deliver products through suppliers
that meet the individual needs of YOU - our customer. Organic or not,
hormone free or not, lean, marbled, young, aged, grass fed or corn-fed, dry
aged or vacuum packed - you can have it your way.

provide the country - the world, with a distinct, tasty, enjoyable,
nutritious, eating experience. JHL BEEF has been sold as

TOMORROW. Aim to be better
managers with better genetics and better growing processes than today!
The closer YOU, our customer, are to being involved in the process the more
accountable we must be. This is not necessarily the way of the past, or the
way of present, but we believe it is the correct way. We welcome your involvement and
HAVING IT OUR WAY
We believe that to do beef right we
must first start with the correct genetics. (See our COW TALK section). Our
beef program is clearly aimed at what we like to eat. Our preference is for
a quality grade of High Choice (lots of small fat flecks within the meat).
High Choice gives you a high probability the meat will be tender enough
that it can't be easily ruined on the grill or stove. Even when the
majority of the intra-muscular fat is cooked out it will still be juicy,
fork tender and will have the distinctive beef flavor. High Choice beef
comes at a premium because it occurs in about 15% or less of the animals
processed. We also like our beef dry aged 21-28 days.
