. . .FROM PASTURE TO PLATE....A CLOSE-UP LOOK AT FAT: TODAY'S CATTLE INDUSTRY PROBLEM, AND
A “REAL” SOLUTION
The number one inefficiency of the cattle business and reason for more lost
profits and waste is the cattle industry’s number one enemy....FAT. In cattle,
when fat goes up, yield grade, profits, and health go down, and labor costs go
up. Every restaurant and grocery
that purchases whole or “Primal cuts” of meat knows how fat affects profits and
labor costs. Below are photos of “Choice Grade” T-Bones (not the higher fat
grade of Prime), ordered from a quality distributor that sells “Primal cuts” to
the restaurant trade. If this cross had been Romagnola, it would have been
impossible to build excess back fat, which would have given you better
profitability on yield grade.
In the first picture above, over one inch of backfat had to be
trimmed from these steaks. This is typical of Choice carcasses. Steaks are
either trimmed by the packer, or by the point of sale such as restaurants and
supermarkets. This causes increased time and labor costs, and produces
tremendous waste that has to be disposed of properly for whomever does the
trimming. Almost one-quarter to one-third is lost from the product, and meat is
sold by weight. The second photo below demonstrates the amount of fat accumulated in
the “waste tray”. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are lost each year due to
excess fat. If this was a “Prime cut”, there would be even more backfat! High
yielding carcasses bring more dollars, and that means heavier muscled, leaner
carcasses pay premiums. It is a fact that our society is demanding leaner,
healthier beef, and the supply is short. Perhaps now you can see why there is
such a push to find lean, muscular bulls that can correct this problem in their
offspring. Look no further!
