What’s So Special with Us ? Here we are Certified :


Daniel and Patrick McDougall’s ancestors first settled in western Nevada in the 1860s after leaving the South during the Civil War. Daniel and Patrick continue their family’s ranching tradition as fourth generation cattle ranchers, headquartered in Fallon, Nevada.

Daniel McDougall

Today, the McDougall family business—NFR Beef—raises thousands of heads of cattle including Angus cows, calves, bulls and replacement heifers on several Ranches with over 200 square miles across multiple US Western States of native pastures and range where cattle are born and raised.

We are fourth generation cattle ranchers dating back to the American Civil War when our family members migrated to the region. During World War II our family was supplying Beef to the U.S. Department of Defense feeding: Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen and Marines. Raising Superior Natural Free Range Certified Grassfed Beef Cattle is in our blood, it is what we do!

We know that cattle are healthiest when grazing on their natural diet of grasses and legumes in an unstressed environment with plenty of room to roam. By employing rotational grazing, we provide our cattle with an abundance of such a diet on lush regions and pastures of grasses.

Our calves are never fed grain, antibiotics, hormones, or other additives. No herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilizers are used by us on our pastures. We also know that grazing cattle stimulates growth of grasses which in turn sequesters carbon along with helping to retain soil moisture.

In the process, the cattle also fertilize the pastures and provide important wildlife habitat. ( Click to see TIME article.) We believe that certified grassfed beef is better for us, along with being more flavorful. In fact, those who have tried our grass-fed beef agree with author, Mark Schatzker, “the best steak is raised on grass”.

As well as providing the best possible environment, care, and management for our cattle, we also are developing the genetic line for animals that are best at processing grass into tender, tasty, and marbled meat. We select for these characteristics in our replacement heifers and bulls.

Our goal is to provide the healthiest and highest quality all natural Certified Grassfed Beef and Grassfed Organic Beef available on the market. We do this by using consistent methods of sustainable production, intense management, high quality genetics, and year round pasture grazing, never confining our animals to feed lots. Our system encourages the health and wellness of the animals, and our cattle are never given antibiotics or growth hormones. The highest quality standards are kept and controlled through the entire process from the finishing, to processing, and delivery.
