Callan Cattle Co. = 100% Grass Fed
America's FIRST Beef

What is Callan Cattle Co.......?
Callan Cattle Co. starting in 1996 raising 100% grass fed, Texas Longhorn cattle on over 100 acres of Ohio grasses.
We sell Texas Longhorn cattle.
 We sell State and Federal inspected table meat.
We sell Skulls of Texas Longhorns

Quarter, half & whole beef - $5.10 / lb. X hang wt. 
Quarter hanging weights range 125 to 165 lb
Half hanging weights range  250 to 330 lb
 You don't pay for excess fat on our carcass weights because there isn't much excess fat.
What's that mean? Your money pays for edible muscle meat, not suet for the birds.
 Our quarter, halves and wholes have all the popular steaks, roasts WITH ground beef.
 We pay all processing fees.

Ground Steak - $6.00 / lb. (1 lb. vac-wrapped packages)
Not ground TRIM, but ground STEAK CUTS. No minimum orders. We don't ship via carriers.

Give us a call at 740-745-3348 with questions or orders.

 Texas Longhorn "hanging weights" don't have "excessive back fat" like other breeds.
You won't pay for excess fat trimmed off (there isn't any excess).
 Longhorn back fat is naturally 1/4 inch. Just right for your steaks.

     Today, selling authentic Texas Longhorns meat for 22 years, we have a high rate of customer satisfaction. Longhorn cattle have "lean genetics", like Bison. Longhorns don’t produce excess back fat.  Longhorn cattle have only 1/4 inch back fat (measured at the 13th rib), just right for your steaks, and the meat is tender. Other breeds have up to 3/4 in. of back fat that's cut trimmed to 1/4 in. and thrown away (Hey, you payed for fat thrown away). Does your grocer even see their hanging beef? He receives "boxed beef", and cuts it up. 
After butchering, our carcass goes into the cooler and "cold aged" for 10-12 days (your grocer can't say that), when our beef comes out of the cooler it's cut into the more popular steaks, roasts and the rest ground for burger. Then frozen for your serving convenience. Then it's ready for delivery or pick-up to the customer.

  Buying farm raised Longhorn meat is environmentally friendly.  
 CCC Longhorns were born on the farm, raised on the farm loaded at the farm and  transported direct to an Ohio inspected processing facility. That's about 80 miles. Your average store bought beef has about 3,000 miles on it.  It's been sold, bought & transported several times(The cow/calf guy, backgrounder guy, finisher guy, sale barn, beef buyer, processor guys, distributor guy, to your store).
 Think of the environmental footprint.
We are blessed stores have beef counters and it feeds America, but YOU have an alternative.

What's your cost of fat in your burger at the grocery? 
A quick and easy test:
Multiply the FAT percent times the price you paid  per your store (easy)
Store 92/8 means 8% fat times $6.50  per lb. = 52 cents paid for waste FAT. Ugh
Store 80/20 sale burger is 20% fat times $3.95/ lb. = 79 cents for FAT. UGH!
(store burger has "trim fat" blended in it. Longhorn virtually has no/low trim fat.)
 CCC TEXAS LONGHORN is 95/5. 5% fat, times $5.95 = 29 cents. WOW!!
Do the math!
THINK....... then THINK RIGHT!

Our beef is from the farm in OHIO.
Texas Longhorn beef is NOT Prime, it's PREMIUM

Purchase a Longhorn Skull or GROW YOUR OWN CATTLE
  Authentic Longhorn cattle have a long life span, but don't live forever. We regard some as keepers "forever"... their skulls are finished, cleaned and "wife approved" for wall hangers in a million $$ home. We sell authentic Texas Longhorn skulls. No rope or leather wrapped around the horn base hiding screws, glue and plaster on a Angus or Holstein cow skull. 
"Ya can't get realler than that"...
They make great gifts.

Purchase a Live Longhorn for your own small acreage
Ask for a Cattle-log for live Longhorns.

 Texas Longhorns are DROUGHT RESISTANT cattle

Raise your own grass fed table beef. With Ohio's average 36 in. rainfall it takes about 3 acres per Texas Longhorn. If you have a yucky dense wooded area, that's FOOD for a Texas Longhorn. Their natural diet is 30% browse (nettles, poison ivy, wild grapevine, tree leaves, burdock, dandelion, lamb-quarters).

Have we been dumbed down by advertising to believe we need a $12,000 fuel burning orange or green tractor/mower/bucket and lawn sweeper to eat up our time, billfold & lawn? Texas Longhorn cattle add fertilizer and replant grass and clover seeds with their hooves.
Com'on put your thinking cap on!

Easy Calving - Proven by Nature, not just data on paper
  Texas Longhorn bulls are known and sought after to breed other breed's first time heifers.
Longhorn calves have smaller heads and narrower shoulders (than other cattle) at birth, giving younger, first calf Mama's easier calving. 
A live Mama, with  live calf is important for your profit line.
Longhorns put the weight on AFTER their born

We're looking forward to serving you.

Grazingly Yours,
