Northwest Land & Livestock Co., is owned by Doug & Cathie McCollum. In 1984 they brought in 17 heifers and a Galloway Bull out of Paulson's Ranch in North Dakota. The Galloway is originally a breed from Scotland they are known for their hardiness.
Their meat is naturally lean and tender sweet. McCollum believes in raising "All natural Meat" which means animals that are not pushed to grow with hormone or steroids. Beef take around twenty months to be ready for market. So far we have been fortunate up here in Alaska not having to vaccinate for various diseases that cattle in the lower 48 contact. You'll find no purer beef in the world.
The Galloway have a coat of hair similar to the buffalo, a short undercoat and a long overcoat. "It's practically a cross between a cow and a buffalo," says Delta Farmer Scott Miller. They are a medium sized animal and really standout in their crossbreeding.
The beef herd has increased to over 400 head of Galloway/Angus cattle and now they have included a small farrow to finish hog operation. Through the company's producing and direct marketing efforts, consumer's are able to buy meat products direct-fresh from the farm!
Delta Meat is proud of the local farmers who have contributed stock for marketing "Alaska Grown" meats. They have buffalo, yak, elk, reindeer that are locally raised in the interior in addition to the farmers who raise domestics.
We have local farmers such as:
