Share Article

Great West Cattle Company and Thorbardin Ranch are trying to turn the Veal industry around and public perception with it. The companies are setting new standards in the industry for raising veal.

Great West Cattle Company and Thorbardin Ranch are raising the bar for quality and humane treatment in veal production, through its free range veal practices. With the use of these practices, Great West Cattle Company is taking the lead in changing public perception about veal and bringing back the popularity of the fine delicacy.

Great West Founder, Jon Cordonier, says the company's exclusive provider, Thorbardin Ranch’s practices differ from widely known practices for raising veal. “The U.S. Department of Agriculture statistics show over the last 3 decades, veal consumption in the United States has declined by more than 80%. The decline is largely due to an increased awareness of the inhumane practices of most veal producers in America. Great West Cattle Company veal is raised naturally without confinement, staying with mom on the Wyoming range with a diet of both milk and summer grasses.”

Great West’s exclusive provider, Thorbardin Ranch takes great care in raising Heritage breed animals with a well balanced diet that is healthy as well as hormone and antibiotic free. Heritage Highland Beef is known as the world’s best beef and now will be known as the world’s best veal.

A number of regional chefs have fallen in love with Great West Cattle Company veal. Patrons appreciate knowing that the animals are raised naturally in a humane manner while providing an award winning dining experience of extremely tender and exceptionally flavorful veal.

Recently Scott Savage, Executive Chef of the Four Diamond Cliff House restaurant in Colorado Springs, Colorado, won “Best of Show” and “Best Entree” for the 2006 Chefs’ Gala using Great West Cattle Company veal. “When you start with an exceptional product like Great West Veal, you can’t help but win something,” says Chef Savage after accepting his award.

“Great West veal is the hallmark for all veal in North America today. This product is another example of our commitment to provide the very best beef in the world to our customers”, says founder, Jon Cordonier. Great WestCattle Company has found a recipe for success that keeps turning out the best products you can find anywhere: Heritage Highland cattle are naturally raised, grain finished, processed with the latest technology, and then dry aged for taste and tenderness.
