The Benefits of Beef in Children’s Development
Have you ever wondered if beef is needed for your child to develop properly? The internet is flooded with so much information these days on what foods a child should eat or not eat in order to develop properly so it’s easy to feel misguided, overwhelmed, and confused.
One thing is for sure, people of all ages and stages need protein in order to function! Children need a well-balanced diet that includes protein so they can grow and develop. Do you remember when the food pyramid came along? This handy visual shows the need of all foods including protein (beef included).
A child needs 2-3 servings of protein a day and they can eat it from a variety of sources, but did you know there is value in children eating beef? Yes, beef! Here’s how beef’s nutrients can help in a child’s development:
Iron - this nutrient is needed for your child to have energy and it carries oxygen through your child's blood to their internal organs
Zinc - this nutrient is vital for the normal growth and development of the reproductive organs and brain and plays a role in the normal functioning of the immune system and many other processes in the body
Vitamin B12 - this nutrient is essential for your child's neurological development and cell growth
As you can see beef contains nutrients for your children’s growth and development. No need to question your child eating beef or not as studies have shown that consumption of protein including beef is crucial for development. So, go ahead, serve your child a delicious hamburger, roast, or steak while they reap in the benefits of beef for their development. (and you could enjoy some too!)

Draining the grease from ground beef should be an easy task, but somehow it always ends up being a huge pain in the rear. I set out to research the best ways to drain grease from ground beef.
Dad goes on pasture checks twice a day to check on cows and calves. I went with him yesterday and compiled these videos of what we look for when we are doing checks.
This week I decided to do a little bit of the background on how shipping day looks and how we ship our family farms beef directly to consumers across United States!
To give you a little background we ship once a week on Mondays - to ensure that the product doesn't sit over the weekend and get stuck at UPS. It can potentially thaw, so we try to avoid the weekends at all costs. We use some:
