Tuesday was an exciting day at Cross Creek Cattle Company. Dr. Ward Bond, a nutritionist and television host, arrived with a small camera crew to spend a few hours at our ranch. Dr. Bond is the host of Nutritional Living, a program that is in its sixth season, which is devoted to showcasing natural products and nutritional information.
A brand-new show, Think Natural, will begin on August 30th. It will air on ABC’s Live Well Network in Houston, Texas. Dr. Bond is doing an episode on grass fed beef. We are honored that he chose our ranch to showcase. He interviewed my father, Kenton Holliday, who is the owner of Cross Creek Cattle Company, as well as myself. It was a pleasure to discuss what we do here on our ranch with a nutritionist. Dr. Bond was well-versed in the health benefits of grass fed beef.
We also enjoyed taking our guests on a walk through our herd. We showed them the free choice minerals that we mix from kelp meal, stocker salt, and diatomaceous earth. The camera man was impressed with the condition of the calves that are in the finishing process.
It was also fun for us to invite them to lunch. What did we serve? Grass fed beef, of course. My father grilled hamburger patties prepared simply to showcase the flavor of grass fed beef. We also served salad and chips. I think they really liked our beef since they went back for seconds.
The grass fed patties did not exhibit much shrinkage due to the fact that the meat is naturally so lean. Cooking the patties at a lower temperature and for less time on each side insured that the patties were not dry. We seasoned them with salt, pepper, and a little garlic powder. If you don’t mind me saying, they really were delicious.
All in all, Tuesday was a great day for our family and our ranch. Being able to help spread the word about grass fed beef is an honor. I will let you know when Cross Creek Cattle Company will be featured on Think Natural. I hope that you check it out as well as support Dr. Ward Bond as he tries to educate people on health, nutrition, and natural living.
