Tom RevierRevier Cattle Company (RCC) raises Prime/Choice-graded Black Angus cattle in Olivia, MN. All RCC’s purebred Black Angus operations seed stock is developed with no expense spared to achieve the highest quality beef. With decades of cattle raising experience, RCC is a true expert when it comes to choosing and nurturing Premium Cattle.

As a result of this commitment, consumers can be assured of safe, high quality, sustainable beef as part of a balanced, highly nutritious, and delicious diet at home and in the finest dining establishments.

“Revier Cattle Company (RCC) effectively and efficiently manages livestock production while protecting the environment.”

“Livestock manure is full of natural soil nutrients. Utilizing manure as fertilizer reduces the need for mined and manufactured sources. The fence lines and pastures necessary for livestock production add diversity to the environment by protecting soil and providing a habitat for wildlife.”

“RCC facilities incorporate tertiary anaerobic digester technology to capture and treat animal waste. The solids and liquids are separated to provide flexibility in application of this natural soil enhancer. In the future, plans are to capture additional energy from animal waste and convert it in to compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel for company trucks and equipment.”

 

4th generation (the 5th generation is already at work, too) cattle rancher Tom Revier is our guest.

Tom Revier of Revier Cattle Company and Chef Andrew Gruel of SlapfishRevier Cattle Company (RCC) raises Prime/Choice-graded Black Angus cattle in Olivia, MN. All RCC’s purebred Black Angus operations seed stock is developed with no expense spared to achieve the highest quality beef. With decades of cattle raising experience, RCC is a true expert when it comes to choosing and nurturing Premium Cattle.

“In 1867, the Revier family homesteaded in Renville County, an area abundant with rich soil and quality water. Through hard work and dedication, generations of Reviers have made their livelihood by farming and raising beef cattle on the fertile prairie land.”

“From the very beginning, the Revier family of farmers continuously found ways to raise better beef, preserve, and protect the land and water. Today, the Reviers continue this tradition with Revier Cattle Company (RCC) and Revier Farms. Brothers Tom and Dave, graduates of Concordia College in Moorhead Minnesota, work together to balance and support the complex operations and economics of a successful farm.”

“With a solid foundation of education and a lifetime of hands-on experience, they continue building a sustainable future in agriculture for themselves, their family and the world.”
