Callan Cattle Co. = 100% Grass Fed
All American Beef

What is Callan Cattle Co.......?
Callan Cattle Co. started in 1996 with 100% grass fed, Texas Longhorn Beef.
We sell Texas Longhorn cattle.
 We sell state inspected table beef.
We sell Skulls of Texas Longhorns

    Today, after selling authentic Texas Longhorns and their meat for 20 years, we have a high rate of customer satisfaction. Longhorn cattle have "lean genetics". Longhorns don’t produce excess back fat like other cattle.  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 cattle breeds have up to 3/4 in. of back fat that's cut down by the butcher to 1/4 in. and thrown away (Hey, you payed for that fat thrown away). Does your grocer meat guy even see the carcass? He receives "boxed beef", then cuts it up . Can he show you a comparison carcass of his "breed"  to a Longhorn?
Excess fat in your belly is like water in your car's gas tank, it just doesn't run very well. 
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 (so you can have it in your freezer for convenience). Then it's ready for delivery or pick-up to the customer.

  Buying fresh farm beef 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.
 Think of the environmental footprint.
We are blessed that store purchased beef feeds America, but YOU have an alternative.

Quarter, half & whole beef - $5.10 / lb. X hang wt. = Your price 
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 beef, not suet for the birds.
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.
Most details are below. Give us a call at 740-745-3348 with questions or orders.

 We pay processing fees.
Quarter hanging weights range 125 to 165 lb
Half hanging weights,  250 to 330 lb
 Our quarter, halves and wholes have all the popular steaks & roasts with ground beef.

 Texas Longhorn "carcass weights" don't have excessive "back fat" like other cattle breeds.
Therefore you don't pay for excess "trimmed fat" you don't receive.
 Longhorn beef back fat is only 1/4 inch. Just right for your steaks.

   For SAFETY:
          Our beef is Ohio Dept. of Agriculture inspected,
"Cold Aged", vacuum-packed (for long freezer life) & labeled at an Ohio licensed facility.

How much do you pay for fatter burger at your 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!
          Grazed, hayed and processed in Ohio

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 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 and more.

Have we been dumbed down by advertising to believe we need a $12,000 fossil fuel burning orange or green tractor/mower with a bucket and lawn sweeper to eat up our time, billfold & lawn? Texas Longhorn cattle add fertilizer for the soil rather than hydrocarbons in the air.
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,
  Ed Callan
