Grass Fed Beef is the Best Choice

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

I was flipping through a book of my dad’s today. Someone gave him, Don’t Squat With Yer Spurs On!: A Cowboy’s Guide to Life by Texas Bix Bender. It is a small book packed with funny sayings and cowboy wisdom.

One quote in particular jumped out at me. “Always take a good look at what you’re about to eat. It’s not so important to know what it is, but it’s critical to know what it was” (pg. 80). I re-read it and really chewed on the truth in this statement.

Grass fed beef looks different out of the package. It is lean. The fat is yellowish in color. It is not like its grain fed counterpart proudly displayed in the grocery store refrigerated meat section. You will be able to see the difference; however, according to this saying, that is not what is important.

What is important is knowing from where the beef came. At Cross Creek Cattle Company, our calves are grazing grassy pastures in a herd. Their bodies are free from antibiotics and growth hormones. They have free access to fresh water. When we work them or move them to another pasture, it is done with low-stress methods.

In other words when you purchase grass fed beef from our ranch, the beef comes from animals that were raised the way God intended them to live: on pasture, on grass, and with a herd. As evident in this saying, old cowboys thought knowing from where you food came is critical. If I had to chose, the choice for grass fed beef is an easy decision to make.
