What breed of cattle are we raising?

The Pinzgauer hails from Austria - a pure breed with the ability to produce both excellent beef and milk. First imported into the US in the 70's, the breed is to finding it's place across the states.

On our farm we keep them for their ability to raise an excellent, healthy calf with strong maternal instincts while remaining docile enough for handling. About half of our finishing herd is crossed with a red Angus bull to provide the best beef with our feed program aimed at low maintenance cattle.

You'll see their beautiful shades or red and occasionally black with white tails and bellies. Pinzgauer coloring is dominant and will almost always appear on crossed offspring.

The APA reports: Pinzgauer milk has a higher content of butterfat which produces faster and slightly higher than average weaning weights, improved milk production and quality. The average female weighs around 1200 pounds and will typically wean a 600 pound calf.

A shear force (tenderness) test for Pinzgauer was the best at 4.47kg versus 4.5 for Angus with most breeds being over 5.0kg.

Our beef is so much more than a specialty product, crafted from the ground up.

Join us in celebrating National Beef Month by making a May reservation!

Why choose Kollasch Family Farms beef?
We are never done learning how to improving our product. One main focus is the soil our cattle receive their feed from using techniques that directly affect the nutrient content of our beef.

Recent studies show that beef raised with these standards result in #thebettebeef - boosting minerals, vitamins and phytochemicals that benefit human health. Even better, nutrient dense food tastes better and is better for the environment.

This Dramatically Increases The Nutrient Density Of Your Food, Study Says

Knowledge is power and now knowledge is your health! Seeking out sustainable farms isn’t enough.

"On average, regenerative farms that use cover crops, crop rotation, and minimal tilling produce crops with better soil health (seven times healthier than conventional farms) and higher levels of vitamins K and E, thiamin, riboflavin, calcium, copper, sodium, and phosphorus."

Our story begins in a small town...

Beef meticulously raised by a 5th generation farmer and a culinarian. Husband and wife team, Matt and Hilary, began raising cattle to provide quality beef to their family. It didn't take long before there were several order requests coming in. Their farm is located just outside of Whittemore, Iowa, where they run their Pinzgauer cow-calf operation. Cattle are raised in open spaces, in a natural enviroment during the majority of the year. They are never given hormones or GMO's and primarily receive organic grains. We truly beleive that raising an animal naturally is a pillar for the exceptional flavor.

Our goal is to provide you with the same quality beef we put on our own table. We hope you enjoy every bite as much as we do, knowing the high standards and committment we put into raising our beef.

-Matt & Hilary

I (Melissa) use to dislike burger night. The process and mess of dealing with forming beef patties and remembering to thaw the ground beef ahead of time 🤦🏼‍♀️ put it on my list of least favorite grilling meals. But then Kollasch Family Farms premade patties came into my life and Burger Night is now one of our families weekly Summer meals! They come in one pound 4 patty packs and you can even put them on the grill frozen 🙌. Sprinkled with @kinderssauce Buttery Steakhouse Blend and topped with @andrewandeverett co-jack or pepper-jack cheese slices and they are just amazing! Make sure to swing by and pick some up for the 4th of July weekend! #shoplocaliowa #supportlocalranchers #supportlocalfarmers #supportlocal #shopsmall #shoplocal #simplynourished #wellnesswithinreach

Can't wait to try this baby out! Still can't believe I won these!
Kollasch Family Farms is this week’s producer highlight. This beef is meticulously raised by a 5th generation farmer and a culinarian. Husband and wife team, Matt and Hilary, began raising cattle to provide quality beef to their family. They coincide their cattle production with their certified organic row crops, producing sustainable beef by feeding organic grasses and grains grown on their own farm. Their farm is located just outside of Whittemore, Iowa, where they run their Pinzgauer cow-calf operation. Cattle are raised in open spaces, in a natural environment during the majority of the year. They are never given hormones and receive only a limited amount of organically produced (nonGMO) grains. They believe raising an animal naturally is the foundation for achieving exceptional flavor. Kollasch Family Farms supplies the hamburger patties, roasts, stew meat, and (when available) steak cuts for Simply Nourished. As producers, their goal is to implement nutrient-balanced production practices based on science that will produce healthy soils, healthy plants, and healthy people. Their beef are raised in open spaces with their mothers. After weaning, they continue a diet consisting of primarily grasses, as well as supplemental nonGMO corn to help finish the animal. This creates additional marbling in the beef and develops the flavor. The nonGMO corn is a free-choice supplement in the pasture. Kollasch beef has an excellent flavor due to this feeding regimen. Allowing the cattle to graze on green pastures during the warm months, and supplementing during the winter, results in an impeccable taste. Basic practices such as crop rotation keeps the soil's nutrients from depleting. Soil sampling allows them to create maps of their fields ensuring they are adding the right nutrients back to the soil. Using cover crops helps keep soil erosion down and nutrients in. In their transition to organic crops, they also eliminated all chemicals and synthetic fertilizers. We are proud to support this growing local family farm and look forward to expanding our partnership with them in the future! #simplynourished #meetourproducers #wellnesswithinreach #shopsmall #shoplocal @ Kollasch Land & Livestock
Thank you Matt and Hillary Kollasch. Your beef we bought from you is delicious. The best!!
