    Beef and Steak Lovers

    Hey Fanatics,

    My family bought some beef from these guys a couple weeks ago and it's very very good. Best My family and I ever had! Also there beef Jerky is very good! There out of Gilmore City.
    But they come down to Des Moines / West Des Moines quite a bit to make deliveries and meet up with people to talk about their Beef. At least 2 or 3 times a month.

    I uploaded there Brochure as a pic. Also you can check em out on facebook.

    Thought I'd share with everyone. Definitely recommend it.

    Re: Beef and Steak Lovers

    Fareway is the grocery chain that has the best meat of all grocery stores. Buying beef from a local farmer where grain is part of the diet (as opposed to all pasture fed beef) is way above Fareway, bar none. Those guys are pretty high priced compared to the guy I get my quarters from 2 times a year. He's $1.95 / lb plus the processing.

    So not only is the meat tons better than what you get at the local grocery stores, it is quite a bit cheaper.

    Huh? Since when does Fareway not carry grain fed beef?

    Fareway gets their meat from farmers (where else would they get it? the meat factory?)

    Btw, probably around 99% of beef available for purchase is grain fed......

    Especially now that there is not very much pasture available in the country.

    There is a lot of pasture fed beef......Western NE, SD, ND, CO, WY, TX, OK. Not much corn goes in to that meat. NO way your 99% number is anywhere close.

    A little fact for ya........Grain fed beef is a far superior product to pasture fed beef. Most of the corn belt has grain fed beef so you would think most of that would be sold in Iowa right? Wrong......most gets shipped to the right and left coasts where they pay more for the meat. The range fed stuff gets shipped in to midwestern grocery stores and is a lot of what you buy. Fareway might be an exception because their meat is a lot better than the others but a lot of your lean meat is grass fed.

    I know nothing about raising cows, but wouldn't grass fed beef be better? Aren't they supposed to eat grass?

    Your leaner cuts are grass fed beef. They are higher in nutrient value, but tougher and not as tasty.

    Feeding grain to beef cattle causes more fat in the meat which translates to better flavor and tenderness.

    Both good, but grain fed is mucho better!

    Thats like, your opinion, man. There are some small local farmers in the central Iowa area that raise fantastic grass-fed beef.
