We've done business off and on with Fentiman's for 30 years and have always found them to be very helpful and humane. I can't imagine the incident this other person noted because these guys are so friendly and helpful.

I need to let people know what happened to my family from Fentiman??s Freezer Meats, also known as ??D and T Freezer Meats,? in Loveland, Colorado. I am writing this in order to warn people so that you might avoid the same thing happening to you.

My brother, two daughters, and I purchased two cows from an area rancher who raises 100% grass-fed beef. We had them slaughtered and butchered by ??D and T Freezer Meats.? During the process of getting the butchering ordered and carried out, there were a number of phone calls. My brother and I talked with three different people ?? the woman who answers the phone (who??s name I do not know), Dean, and Tony. I assume Dean and Tony, being the owners, stand for ??D and T.?

On multiple occasions during August and during September, both my brother and I were told the price for butchering. We were told we would pay 45 cents per pound of hanging weight. We were also quoted the price for butchering itself as $30 if the cow weighed less than 850 pounds and $40 if the cow weighed more than 850 pounds. The cows were butchered on Sept. 14 and we picked up the meat on Sept. 24, 2007.

When we arrived to pick up our meat, we were told we would have to pay 55 cents per pound and $35 for butchering, in spite of the fact that both cows weighed less than 800 pounds. Neither Dean nor Tony denied having quoted a different price. They simply said that they had raised the price at the beginning of September and we would have to pay it. When confronted with the statement that they had not told us at any point between September 1 and September 14 about this new price structure their answer was that Tony didn??t know that Dean had raised the price and we had to pay it.

We attempted to reason with them. Since both of us are entrepreneurs who know how to conduct business, we attempted to explain that since they did not inform us prior to the butchering of a different price, they needed to accept payment at the price they quoted. Both Tony and Dean quickly became abusive, loud, and threatening. They told us to ??fuck off,? called my brother an ??old man,? (he is 61) and screamed at us to get out of their business. They also threatened us with ??calling the humane society because those cows were skin and bones and were obviously being starved to death.?

It is important to note here that grass-fed cows are naturally lean. The ranchers are responsible people who care very much for the well-being of their animals. Several days before the cows were slaughtered their vet had been out to the herd to check for pregnancies. He saw the rest of the herd and knew that the cattle were healthy.

It is also important to note that although the normal return of meat to live weight is about 50%, we received 34% of the live weight of the animals in meat. In hindsight, I now understand how important integrity is in the butchering profession. There is absolutely no check or balance in the system that would allow us to claim theft of meat.

We left the business, stood in the parking lot, and called the police. Once the police arrived, we paid the amount demanded for our beef, took our meat, and left. We had already invested more than $1200 on the cows from the rancher and could not afford to walk away. Fentiman??s, aka ??D and T Freezer Meats,? knew that they had us over a barrel and took advantage of us to get just a few more pennies out of us.

I truly hope that this letter can be spread around as much as possible in the northern Colorado area in order to protect others from being as badly hurt as we were by Fentiman??s Freezer Meats aka ??D and T Freezer Meats.?

Regretfully,
Lua Sage Fisher

My brother and I purchased two cows from a rancher who raises 100% grass-fed beef. Then they were butchered by Fentiman's or D&T Freezer Meats. During Aug. and Sept we called Fentiman's (D &T) several times. Both my brother and I were told the price for butchering. They said we would pay 45 cents per lb. of hanging weight. The cows were butchered on Sept. 14 and we picked up the meat on Sept. 24, 2007. When we arrived to pick up our meat, we were told we would have to pay 55 cents per pound. Neither Dean nor Tony denied having quoted a different price. They said that they had raised the price at the beginning of September and we would have to pay it. When confronted with the statement that they had not told us at any point between September 1 and September 14 about this new price structure their answer was that Tony didn?t know that Dean had raised the price and we had to pay it. Things got nasty. Both Tony and Dean quickly became abusive, loud, and threatening. They told us to ?f*** off,? called my brother an ?old man,? (he is 61) and screamed at us to get out of their business. We left the business, stood in the parking lot, and called the police. Once the police arrived, we paid the amount demanded for our beef, took our meat, and left. We had already invested more than $1200 on the cows from the rancher and could not afford to walk away.
