Food labeling is confusing. But do not be deceived!

When orange juice says it's non-GMO, please recognize that all oranges are non-GMO. The only potential GMO products in the USA are papaya, corn, alfalfa, soybeans, cotton, potatoes, squash, canola, sugar beets, and apples.

When organic milk is labeled antibiotic free, remember that all dairy products, including milk, are always antibiotic free. Same applies to meat.

Those bananas advertised as cholesterol free? That's because all bananas are cholesterol free.

When a jar of peanuts says it is made in a plant that processes peanuts just use your common sense and roll your eyes.

When a bag of apples says it is gluten free, remember that gluten comes from wheat.

When you see a Facebook post that talks about hormones in beef, please understand that an 8oz serving of beef has 2-3 nanograms of estrogen, an 8 oz serving of white bread has 136,080 nanograms of estrogen, and 8 ounces of soy flour has 342,468,000 nanograms of estrogen. All living things produce estrogen, it's just science.

When that carton of eggs says that they came from vegetarian fed chickens, don't forget that chickens are naturally omnivores.

So yes, eat healthy, but don't be swayed by deceptive advertising. Be informed.

No farms, no food. Know your farmers, know your food.

In 1950 there were
10.6 million cattle in the UK
50,225,000 people in the UK
4 million licensed vehicles on the roads

In 2018 there were
9.9 million cattle in the UK (with an annual average population of 10.9 million since 1950)
66,460.000 people in the UK
38 million licensed vehicles on the roads

There were no records of commercial flights in the 1950s but ...
in 2004 there were 23 million commercial flights
in 2018 there were 38 million commercial flights
(this doesn't include private or freight flights)

I really would love to see the data that conclusively proves that cattle are the game changing contributor to global warming that the media would have us believe.

Just took this photo flying into a Mexico City

I also used to see this pollution every time I flew into LA

It’s very convenient for every single industrial industry and clueless city person to blame problems on the cattle out in the beautiful fields

The problem is definitely the ruminants that have been around since grasslands first existed 🤡🤡🤡

Food for thought..

The red liquid on the plate when eating a rare steak is not blood. It is a protein called myoglobin, which distributes oxygen to the muscles.

All blood has been removed from the carcass during the slaughtering process. There is no such thing as a bloody steak.

LOOK AT THIS!!! 👀. LABELS!!! When I sell direct off the farm I always try to be at least half the price of Whole Foods Market in my area. I have way too much kale right now and need to get that garbage off my farm.
I know there are people who love eating those dirt tasting leaves so I grow a ton of kale because I still love them🙂. Below is a screen shot of the LABELS Whole Foods uses to justify 1.99 for 3 ounces of Kale. My direct sale price is 1.00 for 8 ounces. Let’s look at these labels.

DAIRY FREE- Not even sure why they label it dairy free, no one is confusing something as nasty as kale with ANYTHING dairy.

ENGINE 2- Bougie ass plant based diet pretending to be cool using firefighter themes. Not cool. Plus every firefighter I know can make bomb ass chili and they go heavy on the ground cow!

GLUTEN FREE- OF COURSE IT IS GLUTEN FREE! It is raw KALE, not WHEAT!!!

LOW FAT- Duh!!! Fat tastes good.

LOW SODIUM- SEE ABOVE about the fat.

PALEO FRIENDLY- No way! That sh*t was still wild mustard in the caveman days. Plus they mostly ate berries and mammoths.

SUGAR CONSCIOUS- Again, no one is confusing kale with candy.

VEGAN- 🤔. Well there is an organic label too... That means non synthetic fertilizer. So blood, guts and body parts were used to grow it, but we can’t let little facts like that stand in the way of virtue signaling based diets! Oh yeah lots of 💩 too!

VEGETARIAN- Ummm... Well yeah, it is after all a whole vegetable.

WHOLE FOODS DIET- redundant label.

KETO FRIENDLY- SO IS A T-BONE!

USDA ORGANIC- This does not mean pesticide free. It also doesn’t mean that highly toxic pesticides were not used. It means that they are not synthetic. With that usda label attached it also means they did just enough to stay compliant. If you truly want organic, find you a local guy or gal that grows that way. Then you know for sure. My kale is technically pesticide free because I have not sprayed it once. It is because I do not care enough about it as a crop to waste money spraying it. Nothing eats my kale except deer.

LOCAL- Hmmmmmmmm. I always wonder what the local radius is with grocery stores. On the same site they have eggs produced in Az as local to Indianapolis. There is a conventional egg producer 35 miles south of Indy, but they don’t have the cool hip labels.

Here is an idea. Dump the labels. If you can afford to shop at a Whole Foods, then you can afford to just buy directly from local growers. Do that instead if you can.
Our society is already too confusing with all the labels we put on each other. Now we are doing it with our food. Whole Foods is just a bougie Walmart. At least Walmart is honest about their crap. Look at Twinkies... No labels, just Twinkie the Kid, you know the Twinkie cowboy on the box. He is saying, “Of course I’m not healthy, screw that noise, just eat me!” That is truth in marketing right there.
Want to eat healthy? Support your local farmers. #farmordie

I was flagged for sharing "Violent and Graphic Content" on one of the social media platforms I use to share our story. The video was of Dan working cattle, administering a tattoo, a simple routine task purebred cattlemen often do. I wanted to share a fun and informative little clip, giving a behind the scenes look at our ranch. But nope. Apparently that is "Violent and Graphic."

I don't share this for pity. Honestly, I usually don't get too worked up over this, but this time it got me. I felt defeated. Why am I working so hard to take you guys along with what is happening on our ranch if it is going to be flagged? This is where we are at now? As a culture THIS is Violent and Graphic?! A video of us taking care of our livestock .......Violent and Graphic.....that's where we are folks.

If you have been following along for a while, you know how much I care for our livestock. I have shared the ups and downs. The hard days. The days that make you feel like throwing in the towel. Could I not? Of course! There are more good days than not but I want to share our ranch story. To take you along.

@Instagram @Facebook @TikTok I suggest you learn from the farmers and ranchers using your social media platforms. We are not "Violent and Graphic." We are working 24/7 to provide you with food, clothing, medicine, and many other byproducts that you use daily. We are sharing with the public what we are doing day in and out. Opening the door to conversations. Happy to answer questions that some may have. Instead of flagging us or blocking our accounts, I suggest you ask us some questions. Reach out to farmers and ranchers. We are happy to have discussions with how we raise your food.

So now what. What do we do?

•There is a next step.
•This isn't going to silence or stop me from sharing our story.

#staytuned

**This is a post I shared on Instagram. I share more of our daily happenings on our Instagram account @danddbeef, if you want to follow along over there!

We ALL rely on the cattle industry. In the wake of the current attacks on animal agriculture, we hope you will share this infographic to educate others on the importance of this industry to our everyday lives and economies.

{The NALF Board Moves Forward with Establishing the North American Limousin Research Foundation (NALRF)} When the breed switched its National Cattle Evaluation to IGS a few years ago, it became very apparent to the industry what Limousin breeders have known for quite some time. The Limousin breed offers the ability to make superior females with a solid set of maternal traits that can benefit the beef industry as a whole. This fact, combined with superior feed performance and desirable carcass traits should make Limousin cattle an evident choice to utilize in a commercial crossbreeding program.

The current NALF board sees the improvement made by breeders of both Limousin and Lim-Flex® in recent years. They are intently focused on finding a vehicle and process to update research on our cattle which will hopefully document these advantages through targeted research. The goal ultimately is to attract more demand for Limousin genetics verified by an independent third party.

To accomplish this, the board has approved the formation of the North American Limousin Research Foundation, (NALRF). Potential research projects will be funded by a combination of Founders & Contributors in addition to supplemental funding by the North American Limousin Foundation. The mission of the North American Limousin Research Foundation (NALRF) is as follows:

“To serve the beef industry through targeted science-based research efforts designed to advance, improve, and promote the Limousin breed."

I will never understand how people can wish for other humans to die horrible deaths just because they have a differing opinion or stance on anything.

I will never understand why some people try so hard to shut down agriculture, oil, gas, and timber industries, while still eating food and holding on to their cell phones, and sitting in a house made of wood.

I will never understand how people can be offended by everything.

Idle hands are the devil's workshop.... And he is staying busy! He's never had so many idle bodies, brains, and hands at his disposal, and it is starting to show.

Fight for what you believe in, but be educated. Take both sides of every issue into consideration. Just because something is trending online, doesn't make it right.

Just some thoughts today. My heart is heavy and I don't wish to get into politics, and I'm not going to engage in self-righteous discussions... I'm merely sharing how I feel about our current culture. Have a blessed day, make it worth fighting for 😘
