In a significant stride towards revolutionizing the grass-fed beef industry, Impact Ag Partners’ managed ranch Matador Ranch and Cattle, located in Montana announced its exclusive collaboration with Grass Fed Foods, the largest grass-fed beef platform offering grocers and food service customers turnkey solutions for grass-fed beef. This partnership aims to deliver a consistent supply of high-quality, domestically sourced grass-fed beef from the ranch to Grass Fed Foods.
Nestled amidst the pristine landscapes spanning 380,000 acres, Matador Ranch & Cattle embodies a harmonious coexistence of wildlife, vibrant streams, and fertile grasslands. Managing a herd of 12,000 cattle, the ranch uses profitable regenerative ranching to provide customers with delicious, healthy beef while building soil fertility, restoring biodiversity, improving water quality, and using natural processes to restore carbon to the soil. The ranch takes immense pride in upholding and advancing superior standards in agricultural and environmental practices.
Recently, a two-day event was held on Matador Ranch and Cattle in conjunction with Grass Fed Foods. Over 50 customers of Grass Fed Foods had the privilege of witnessing firsthand the transformative potential of regenerative ranching. Jeff Tripician, the CEO of Grass Fed Foods, reflected on the experience, stating, “Every facet of regenerative cattle ranching was on display, from carbon sequestration to methane reduction, showcasing the impact of High-Intensity Rotational Grazing and the strategies to enhance organic matter in the soil. It was an enlightening and impactful learning journey.”
“…this synergy yields multiple positive outcomes at scale, reinforcing our commitment to adding value to our cattle for premium market access while optimizing genetic and management investments”

To achieve this, we strive to ensure that our products are readily available in every meat case and menu looking to make a positive impact.”
A ranch-style dinner showcasing their environmentally beneficial grass-fed beef included prime cuts from SunFed Ranch and an assortment of hot dogs, sausages, and brats from Teton Waters Ranch.
Mike Gruber, the VP of Ranching and Livestock at Grass Fed Foods, shed light on the remarkable developments at Matador Ranch, stating, “The integration of Selkirk and Beaverhead ranches, boasting 42 pivot irrigation systems spread across 6,000 acres, has revolutionized fodder and crop production. Coupled with expansive rangeland grazing, this synergy yields multiple positive outcomes at scale, reinforcing our commitment to adding value to our cattle for premium market access while optimizing genetic and management investments.”
“This endeavour epitomizes our corporate legacy and is intrinsically linked to our mission of crafting affordable, accessible, quality products that are not only beneficial for the planet but also for people,” Tripician concluded with conviction.
The partnership between Impact Ag Partners and Matador Ranch & Cattle stands as a testament to the power of collaboration in spearheading sustainable practices within the beef industry. Together, they are forging a greener, healthier future for all.
