Cattlemen celebrate Earth Day!

April 25, 2011

Three days ago marked a world-wide celebration, inspiring people to become aware of the Earth’s natural environment. Countries, individuals and organizations across the globe came together to make the world a healthier place. In times like these, everyone is trying to accomplish more with less. And cattlemen are no exception. 365 days a year, cattle farmers and ranchers across the nation are sporting the title – environmentalist.

Grass. Last time I checked, it was world-wide, and I’m fairly certain that we as human beings cannot eat grass. But, what I do know is that cattle CAN consume grass, converting a resource otherwise unusable by humans into a high-quality, tasty protein source that offers 10 of the essential nutrients for life.

Today, cattlemen provide families with nutritious beef using fewer resources than ever before. So, if you’re a little late on Earth Day festivities….why not do something good for your health and for the health of the planet by celebrating with a delicious, juicy steak.
