WHY BEEF RAISED ON THE NEBRASKA SAND HILLS?
The Sand Hills of Nebraska offer some of the best grasses available for raising beef. What that means to you is that the grass our cattle eat are “hard” grasses, which means the grass is packed with protein and nutrients that cattle require to obtain the premium flavoring and texture desired by beef eaters around the world. Our cattle don’t require supplemental feedings of corn and grain to obtain their necessary daily intake of calories and nutrients, they get more than they need from the grass alone. This ensures you receive great tasting beef every time.
ADVANTAGES OF GRAIN FED:
• More marbling
• Familiar taste
• Bigger pieces of meat
• Has more protein from the corn and grain
DESCRIPTION OF TASTE/TEXTURE:
The grain fed beef is what most people are used to eating. It has the familiar steak house taste, with a nice marbling effect that provides for a juicy flavor. The texture is smoother than grass fed because the fat deposits tend to smooth out the meat. Since marbling is a big factor in how the USDA ranks meat, this meat usually obtains the “Choice” and “Prime” ranks.
HOW MUCH MEAT DO I GET?
That depends on how big the steer is when he goes to the butcher shop. In general, the packaged meat is about 1/3 of the live weight of the cattle. Most of our grain fed cattle go to the butcher shop weighing around 1300 lbs. This would be approximately 430-435 lbs. of packaged meat.
