Going Green With Our Wet Blue

National Beef® is positioned in the heart of the Midwest cattle country. We source our hides from a select group of American ranchers, most within a 300-mile radius of our plants, in order to reduce the amount of stress on the animal and natural resources used to move them.

Effective rancher alliances strengthen not just the quality of our products but provide a common commitment to good stewardship of the land, the cattle, and to our shared environmental responsibility. At National Beef, we’re focused on sustainability and doing the right thing for our planet. We accomplish these goals by decreasing our environmental footprint.  

Our advanced tanning process and commitment to the environment contributes to the amount of water leaving our facility and the amount of energy we use. Our unique and innovative system for Wet Blue processing guarantees a consistent, high-quality end product.
