Superior Ostrich Inc. was incorporated in Texas on August 6th, 2013, however operations commenced decades earlier. Reginald W. Lindberg developed a long range plan to use a family ranch in Central Texas to produce raw materials for exotic boots and other high-end specialty fashion. Two decades later, Lindberg partnered with a well-versed management team and together a plan was conceived to bring Ostrich meat to commercial markets.
To increase the supply of protein with an eco-friendly, sustainable, profitable and health conscious product.
Presently, Superior Ostrich maintains a flock of more than one thousand breeder birds and is believed to be the largest ostrich operation in the United States. Superior Ostrich is poised to corner the ostrich market and become an internationally recognized name in high quality meats.
According to a recent article in Animal Science Papers and Reports, ostrich meat "is more tender and easier to digest" than other red meats. This is due to lower levels of intramuscular fat and collagen. The ostrich also has "a more beneficial fatty acid profile than turkey, lamb or beef" and is "a good provider of minerals, particularly iron and zinc."
The taste, texture, and color are similar to veal and beef but ostrich has less than half the calories of beef and is lower in cholesterol than chicken.

Chemically and nutritionally, ostrich eggs are similar to chicken eggs. With a lower level of cholesterol in their yolks (roughly 2 mg less) and a greater ratio of unsaturated fatty acids to saturated fatty acids, ostrich eggs hold stronger health benefits. Ostrich eggs are also very high in Omega-3.
Compared with other livestock, ostrich ranching is significantly more sustainable and economical. As organic and sustainable movements become increasingly preferred by customers and incentivized by legislators, Superiorâ€™s model is prepared to appeal to the health and earth conscious consumer.

Superior Ostrich is proud to be represented by 7 board members, each with unique backgrounds. Our teamâ€™s experience in ranching initiatives, institutional finance, investor relations, and growth stage companies has our team optimistic as we approach 2015.
Superior Ostrich believes that the only way to sustain a growing flock and profitable business is to first assemble a large enough flock and ranching operation capable of breeding the necessary number of animals. By doing so, we are raising the barriers of entry in the ostrich space, and in turn creating a brand new market. The history of the turkey industry in the United States followed a similar model and strategy.
Superior Ostrich is committed to carrying out our plan with precision. For more information, please do not hesitate to reach out and contact us today.
