Choose our Riverine Tender Cut Beef for an exceptional eating experience, every time.
Our Riverine Beef is produced from carefully selected cattle that are raised in the lush, temperate Riverine region of Australia. Riverine cattle are raised on natural pastures, finished on grain for 100 days and aged to ensure superior tenderness, marbling and rich flavour. They are then graded under the MSA grading system to ensure that our Riverine brand delivers great quality beef every time.
What is the difference between grass fed and grain fed beef?
Grass fed beef and grain fed beef offer different attributes that are simply a matter of taste and personal preference. Grass fed beef is often praised for its robust flavour, and grain fed beef is renowned for its increased marbling and tender, mild taste.
By grass feeding our animals and then grain finishing them for 100 days, we ensure our beef has great flavour AND juiciness. When we say ‘grain fed’, this means our cattle are fed a balanced diet of cereal grains to ensure their nutritional requirements are met. These ingredients are different to those used in the US, where soy and corn are more commonly used in the diet.
