Choosing beef…

One of Feed Yard Foodie’s most dedicated readers, Bill, asked last week if I could send out free samples of my beef with my final post of Calf #718…

While I would love to share my beef directly with all of you, logistically it is impossible…So, I figure that the next best thing to sharing my beef, is to share ideas of how to purchase great beef to enjoy!

The meat counter at the grocery store can be incredibly confusing—to add to the confusion is the fact that different regions of the country call different cuts of beef different names!

When you see this logo, you know that the information comes from beef farmers like me!

The Beef Checkoff (which is a national program that all beef farmers like me participate in to promote research and education regarding beef) has developed a virtual meat case to help consumers navigate the meat case at the grocery store.

For my first “Foodie Fun” post, I would like to share the link to the virtual meat case with you all and urge you to go explore it!  I think that it will be incredibly useful to you as you try to figure out the cuts of beef.  There are also recipes and cooking tips specific to the different cuts…

Happy Learning…Take the opportunity this weekend to try out a new cut of beef!

If you like to grill, this T bone steak is ensured to make your mouth water! Thanks to the Nebraska Beef Council for the picture...
