It really depends on where the beef came from. My step family owns a ranch out here in Wyoming.
Let me tell you something about Wyoming first. The moment you first step outside here and you take your first breath, the first thing you notice is
the air is clean! So is the water. Very low mercury content which I guess may come from living in the least populated state in the country, added with
that fact that I'm up about 6000 feet. I dunno. The water does taste a lot better though I'll tell you that.
Anyway most cattle ranchers that live here, don't inject hormones into the beef, nor do they really vaccinate. Most of the time, the cows are roaming
the wilds until round up time and even then only a select few are sent to slaughter and the rest will roam the wilds again the following year.
You can definitely tell the difference from the beef that you get from the ranch compared to the mass produced beef you buy at the store. The ranch
beef is leaner and doesn't have that strange aftertaste that most of us don't even notice anymore. The cows aren't force fed corn, or grain. They
are range fed.
Anyway, I'm not trying to advocate the consumption of beef. I'm just stating that you can really tell the difference when the cows are basically all
The cows are much happier too! Ever seen a cow run and play before? I have.
