New USDA Study Supports Beef in a Healthy, Sustainable Diet

Harris Ranch Beef Company has a personal stake in the quality of the environment. That’s why we proudly share the results of a study published recently in the journal Agricultural Systems entitled Environmental Footprints of Beef Cattle Production in the United States.

The report documents the most comprehensive beef cattle lifecycle assessment ever completed. With research conducted by the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service and The Beef Checkoff, the assessment was designed to scientifically quantify the sustainability of U.S. beef production. The results show widely accepted measures related to beef cattle’s impact in the U.S. are often overestimated.

Food Fashion Prediction: Coulottes are in for Spring!

As the temperature warms, many women are sporting their “culottes”- a short, wide-legged pant.  However, the grill also beckons for “coulottes”—a cut of steak from the top of the top sirloin and shaped like a tri-tip steak.  Harris Ranch Coulotte roasts or steaks are an affordable cut that can be tender when grilled properly, and full of great flavor.  They are a wallet-friendly option for upcoming spring celebrations like Mother’s Day and graduations.
