From burgers and steaks to roasts, hot dogs, jerky and more... it's all about the beef and other byproducts!
Did you know...
Beef Cattle are typically ready to market weighing in at 1,000 to 1,300 pounds.
Grass-fed beef tends to be a little leaner but both grass and grain finished beef are natural sources of more than 10 essential nutrients including protein, iron, and zinc.
A market beef steer weighing in at 1,100 pounds will yield approximately 475 pounds of meat.
The leather from one cow hide is enough to make about 18 pairs of shoes.
We wouldn’t be able to hold our “in person” project RED (Rural Education Days) without our FFA and 4-H volunteers. (We miss you ALL!)
A huge thank you to Sydney Masters for this informative video about raising Beef Cattle on her family farm.
You might be surprised to see how calm and curious those big animals can be.
