Happy Beef Month!

May is beef month! In honor of beef month, I am going to share the top 5 reasons to eat beef:

  1. 97 percent of beef cattle farms and ranches are family-owned and operated. The same product these family farms and ranches produce is the same product that goes on their dinner plate at the end of the day.

    Agriculture is a family affair.

  2. Beef is nutritious! All beef choices are a good or excellent source of 10 essential nutrients and vitamins like protein, zinc, iron and b vitamins.

    Nutritious

    You only need 3-ounces of beef to receive all of these nutrients.

  3. Beef is versatile! The only limitation on what you can do with beef is your imagination. Try a new cooking method! Have you ever had beef for breakfast? Give it a shot!

    Beef...it's not just for dinner anymore.

  4. Beef is delicious! Did you know beef is a natural source of the umami flavor? The umami taste is described as meaty, savory and delicious and, when paired with other umami rich foods, the two will have a magnifying effect on each other and produce 8x more flavor! Bacon, aged cheeses, tomatoes or mushrooms are great options to pair with beef.

  5. Open space and pastures, managed by farmers and ranchers, provides habitats for 75 percent of America’s wildlife.

     I did not want to disturb the nest, so I did not insert anything for scale. The eggs were about the size of a quarter. Pretty tiny for a great big world!

    Here’s a nest I found in a pasture last summer. Wildlife thrive thanks to farmers and ranchers!

Happy Meaty Monday!
