CURRENTLY AT THE RANCH March 2018
Today I am more excited than ever about grassfed beef, and I am excited about beef often!
As I fed the cattle this morning I had a new appreciation for how truly miraculous they are!
Yesterday we attended the 2018 Beef Fatty Acids Workshop, put on by the scientists at the Lacombe Beef Research Station. Our minds were blown by the intricacies of the process by which cows convert feed into the most incredible food source for our fat dependent human bodies.
My take aways from the day— Don’t mess with a great thing. Feed cattle forage and growing grass. Eat grassfed beef!
Another highlight— That the room was full of producers raising beef, on grass. We have a limited supply of grassfed beef in this province, but there is a handful of producers who have devoted our lives and careers to bringing beef pasture to plate. We all do things a little bit differently, we might fill freezers while someone else fills the health food store cooler. Find the grassfed rancher in your neighborhood and support them!
What a privilege to raise this food for our family and to nourish so many others in our community. You, our customers, educate us, speculate with us, bring up Facebook “wisdom,” and ask the tough questions. Keep at it! Now we have a better understanding of the benefits of pastured meat and can say that our “intuition” is supported by science. There is still much more research to be done, but we are on the right path.
Thanks for sticking with us on this journey of happy cows and health!
