Ozark Prime Beef is located in the Missouri range, in the foothills of Bollinger County. There are two mountain ranges within the Ozarks: the Boston Mountains of Arkansas, and the St. Francois Mountains of Missouri. Much of the area supports beef cattle ranching and, like it is in many rural areas, agriculture and farming play a critical role in the economy of Bollinger County. The average size of a farm in the county is 250 acres, and 93.65% of all farms are operated by a family or one individual. Bollinger County is located above the Bootheel, and average temperatures range from 22 °F in January to 89 °F in July.
Farming operations large or small add to the economic wealth of the county, providing local jobs and a good source of local meats or produce. The county’s agricultural strength is anchored in great part based on the value of beef cattle production and the impact of family farmers. The high-quality crop ground, timberlands and water resources make cattle farming a popular use of the land.
