Gardiner Angus Ranch
Selling approximately 1,300 head, including:
Producing high quality beef in demand around the world isn’t magic, luck or an accident. The process begins in our pastures with a plan based on decades of data, discipline and genomic progress.
In a recent real-world comparison, a GAR home-raised steer, sired by GAR Unassisted, grading USDA Prime, YG2, out of a first-calf heifer, returned $448 more than the Low Choice commodity carcass with the exact same carcass weight, harvested on the same day. A real time comparison fabricating the whole loins of each carcass documented more than $120 wholesale price difference in the two loins.
Some will argue, “that’s only one head.” Our discipline, over decades, has proven if we can do it with one, we can do it across a population. Since 2017, more than 14,000 head of GAR-influenced fed cattle have been processed at National Beef, using GAR USPB delivery rights. More than $1.82 million has been returned to the producers. More than 98.7% of the cattle graded Choice or higher, 31% graded Prime and returned more than $125 above the base price to the owners of the cattle.
The Gardiner Angus Ranch pre-sale program before the 43rd Annual Production Sale demonstrated the value difference through the life cycle of a steer. Certified Angus Beef meat scientists, Diana and Daniel Clark, simultaneously broke down two loins to cuts most familiar to food service, restaurants and consumers to determine the retail value differences between the two carcasses relative to individual cuts of beef.

We appreciate the time, energy and expertise Superior TV producer, Roger Lindley, and his team invested in helping us tell our story.
