GodKu (GoodCow) consists of 100% grass-based meat production. West Coast Fjord Cattle are a protected Norwegian cattle breed and are referred to in many contexts as the "primitive cow". And is often referred to as Norway's national cow, with roots dating back 5,000 years. Today there are around 1,000 Fjord Cattle in Norway, and the breed is classified by the UN as threatened with extinction.
They feed on the cultural landscape with grass, leaves, buds on bushes, heather, and many other species of herb and greenery. This gives a healthier fatty acid composition with a much higher content of Omega 3 fatty acids and a lower level of Omega 6 fatty acids in the meat. And is highly prized by chefs in gourmet restaurants.
Operations at GodKu are based on value-based sustainability in food production and animal welfare. Our animals roam freely all year round in meadows, where they have plenty of space to act out their natural behaviour and roam carefree. Our calves stay with their mothers throughout their upbringing, suckling milk from their mothers, - that's why the operation is also called a nursing cow operation. The calves mature and grow slowly, this leads to a positive effect on the marbling of the meat and the delicate development of flavour.
All these factors combined give us that unique, fine-grained, and tender meat, with exquisite marbling and a superior fatty acid composition with a unique taste as the end result.
