Things to Confuse You

Screen Shot 2013-01-10 at 8.55.09 AMTweet, tweet, tweet! Hello from the YPC Twitter birds, Brandi and Lauren!

We want to remind everyone attending the 2013 Cattle Industry Convention in Tampa that you can interact with us in a variety of ways…not to make things complicated!

1. Tweet to the Young Producers’ Council: @YPCBeef

2. Tweet to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association: @BeefUSA

3. Tweet your lovely Cattle Call editors: @BrandiBuzzard & @LaurenMSea

In all of your convention related tweets, please use the hashtag #CIC13…so we can spy on you. No, just kidding. But it’s a nice way to organize information, see what everyone is experiencing during the convention and have those who cannot attend follow along from their computers.

(For those who are not attending, follow the stream here)

If none of this is making sense to you…don’t worry! We have a free guide that will help you understand Twitter and better yet, help you set up your very own account! Yeah, we got you covered! Click here and download the ever-so-awesome PDF.

#ThanksforReading,

@BrandiBuzzard and @LaurenMSea

Women Need Beef!

Beef has made a spotlight appearance in an article on Yahoo.com titled, “Top 10 Superfoods for Women” as Skinny Steak is promoted for its heart healthy attributes. Below is the actual wording,

“The “Skinny” Steak
Red meat has a bad rap. The thing is, it really is good for you. Ideally, go for a cut that is both lean and grass-fed. A recent report from the Union of Concerned Scientists shows that meat from grass-fed cows usually has more conjugated linoleic acid (which has been shown in animal studies to combat cancer) and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids than the grain-fed variety. Plus, meat from grass-fed cows is lower in total fat and calories. As long as your serving is a lean cut, such as tenderloin, feel free to make this smart choice two or three times a week, says Bowden.
Bonus benefits: Beef is a great source of protein, iron (a mineral that one in five women are deficient in), and heart-healthy B vitamins.”

While I take issue that grass-finished is being promoted over grain-finished (dieticians have stated that the differences in linoleic acid and omega-3 fatty acids between grass and grain finished beef aren’t enough to affect human health) this is a home-run for beef.

As it states, lean beef is where it’s at. This includes most cuts from the loin (top sirloin steak, tenderloin), 95% lean ground beef, round steak. I had some amazing sirloin steak at a wedding this past week and can’t wait to try a similar recipe.
And guys, don’t feel left out. Just because the article doesn’t talk about male diet plans, you can rest assured that lean beef is just as good for you as it is the ladies.
Go BEEF!
