A big thanks to the FRUGALDAD site for sending us this infographic to share with you.  This really sheds light on the actual “food pyramid”.  Hey guys!  How about that 35 POUNDS of antibiotics you will consume over your lifetime via storebought meats?  YUUUUUMMMM!  Does this make any one wonder what is actually sitting on your Thanksgiving table?  Take a look a this graphic and then ask yourself…..is the Federal government really worried about food safety?  Are they really trying to prevent centralization and monopoly’s in agriculture?  More

100 ways to end independent and family farms and ranches

Leave a comment

Below is a partial list of the massive effort to seize control of the US food production and supply.  This control, if successful, will end family and independent producers, handing this sector of our economy over to multi-national corporations who fund and write the legislation and who contract with USDA and FDA against the people.  Every thing from milk and eggs, to beef and pigs, they want it tracked, traced and controlled by the Fed.  Think its about food safety? Its about control and who gets to profit.  ##########

Report shows less beef production, growing exports

Leave a comment

www.naisSTINKS.com

Editors note: The USDA and ag media can carefully document history with numbers.  It is the job of each ranch survivor to use the data to make profitable projections . Although these numbers are probably correct, here is how it will shake out:

1) The US has imported more beef than exported for the last 21 years.

2) Although data shows more beef is imported (+$2,000,000,000) than is exported, a reducing inventory of beef production has had no resolve in USDA and BEEF CHECK OFF efforts to increase US exports. The unasked question is “Who does the US buy beef from for export sales when the nation has not produced enough beef in 21 years to feed the nation?”

3) No extra expense is necessary for US producers to implement NAIS when exports are proven to be of no value to the US producer.  Any country that thinks US should do mandatory NAIS will not be able to buy any US beef shortly.  There won’t be any extra available.

4) US beef export will be history within 3 years.  Check the data and watch. 

5) The Beef Check Off money should be used totally to promote a US market to increase competition with vegetarian promotions. Darol Dickinson

In Europe, A Cow Over Hormone-Treated U.S. Beef

Leave a comment

 
NPR  September 29, 2009

The U.S. and the European Union recently settled one of their longest-running trade disputes: over beef. Under the deal, the EU agreed to quadruple import quotas for hormone-free U.S. beef, but it still won’t import hormone-treated American beef, because many Europeans consider it unhealthy. More

Beef ~~ Buy in bulk and Save


Avoid Expensive purchases.

Meat MarketThe most expensive meats are purchased at huge local grocery stores. This habit of purchasing is attractive and convenient. Customer enhancements include small sizes, flashy promotions, special light effects and bright colorful packaging. Pricey meats are promoted in “bite size” packages. As food gets higher, portions get smaller.

Consumers often purchase more than once a week causing the dollars to appear less per trip, but actually, the opposite happens when considering long term family food costs.

Chinese/Brazil burgers?

Store displays often provide products from dozens of countries, all with less sanitary production than the USA. Even with Country of Origin laws it is still difficult to identify the source. Some labels say, “Product of Mexico, Canada and USA.” A ground beef product could mix lean frozen trim from Australia, 40% fat could be added from Canadian feed lot steers and include a pinch of USA product. That is how it can, and does work.
People Enjoying Beef

All Natural safe foods for important families.

Longhorns Head to Tail Store (LHT) is simple and economical in an otherwise confusing global food system. All LHT meat products are raised and grown naturally in Ohio. No hormones, steroids, growth implants or unnecessary antibiotics are used. Cattle are free range grazed, drink spring water and eat abundant native Appalachian grasses.  Simple, old fashioned, healthy and good.

Get Lean, not Fat.

Longhorn Lean Grass beefHalves of beef are available cut and wrapped in single portions. The vacu-wrap, air tight, fast frozen process seals flavor and prevents freezer aging. Each half of beef comes in 11″ X 12″ X 21″ boxes. (Normally 4 boxes per half) A half beef is 6 to 7.5 cubic feet. This fits easily into a 6.8 cubic foot freezer sold by most appliance stores for $155 to $180. The cost for freezer electricity is $30 + – per year.  www.head2tail.com

Five family processing plants cut and wrap LHT products. The plant owners work consistently on site. These are not huge factories with illegals doing the work. All are Ohio State or USDA inspected. Although some plants are a good distance from Barnesville, the travel is worth the personal quality control.

Easy Transport of frozen product.Nice longhorn cow and calf

All product is available at the LHT Store at 35000 Muskrat, Barnesville, Ohio. Halves of beef may be transported for up to 20 hours without thaw as a result of special packing. It is easy to transport frozen product. LHT delivery routes include areas of Cleveland, Columbus, St. Louis, Colorado Springs, Little Rock, Morgantown, Hagerstown, Tulsa, and Ft. Worth.  Request details.  www.head2tail.com

Buying in volume saves.

Purchasing in volume can save the average family of 5 up to $800 per year. LHT halves are priced at $2.75 per lb. hanging weight. A half beef weighs from 290 to 390 lbs. Quarters are also available for those with less storage space. The LHT Certified Texas Longhorn Beef can be purchased from a pound to hundreds of pounds. Volume discounts are available on 50 lbs. or more.

The Highest Quality, Lean & healthy.Longhorn Herd on natural grass

Lean grind is a full steer product including all steaks, roasts, yet removing fat trim. It is not generic scrap trimmings from over fattened feed lot steers. LHT grind averages 92% lean. There is no comparison in taste and health values for the money. The real proof is taste and cooking qualities.  Call 740 758 5050 to reserve a half for your family. Special custom cutting can be ordered in advance.  www.head2tail.com
