About Our Beef
According to the USDA, a natural beef
product is one that "does not contain any artificial flavor or flavoring,
coloring ingredient, or chemical preservative or any other artificial or
synthetic ingredient; and the product and its ingredients are not more than
minimally processed." Here at Berry Angus we focus on marketing a high
quality, natural beef product.
Berry Angus beef is raised at Berry
College, which guarantees that the product is Black Angus, natural, raised
without added hormones, and is processed at a state inspected facility to
insure quality. A label is required to sell individual cuts of beef.
All beef is nutrient rich, with eight
times more vitamin B12, six times more zinc and three times more iron than
skinless chicken breast. Twenty-nine cuts of beef meet government guidelines
for lean, such as the Filet Mignon, sirloin, and lean ground beef. Beef is
America’s #1 source of protein.
Absolutely no synthetic hormones are
given to the steers to enhance their growth or development.
Berry Angus steers are grain fed from
weaning weight to harvest, which averages about 8-9 months. Grain feeding
increases the marbling that creates maximum flavor.
All Berry Angus steers are raised at
Berry College. Berry students care for and oversee the well-being of these
