    What do all the labels mean? Are the cattle you raise and the beef you eat certified?

    What do all the labels mean? Are the cattle you raise and the beef you eat certified?

    Ever wonder what the label means on the beef or food you consume?  How about as a producer where to start?  Today we are talking about labels, and I don't mean the kind we hashtag with on social media.  These are the labels and certification processes that are on the beef we produce.  

    Wondering where to start?  

    Which one do I choose?

    Today we tackle a game plan and strategy of the many options out there and where to even begin.  Tune into the podcast to learn more and head on over to the website for all episode info and links!

    Are you afraid of the food you eat?

    Are you afraid of the food you eat?

    Have you ever found yourself standing at the meat counter, at the grocery store, wondering- Is this safe to eat?  Do you ask yourself where this food was raised or processed?  How about reading something on Facebook or the Gram and throwing out every item in you kitchen that has that ingredient on the list?  I know I have.  And as embarrassing as it may be to admit,  I have fallen victim a time or two to the fear based anti-agriculture marketing.



    On the flip side, I have also been the one who has stood on her soap box and said,  "People need to be educated about where their food comes from!"  This last month has been a bit humbling for this ranch wife.  Join me today as I share the last few months of my ag education journey.  From my Masters of Beef Advocacy training, to SWAT showing up at the court house during a harvest facility meeting, to the smack in the face about my misconception about GMO's.  



    As always I am here to share with you all things agriculture, beef, and of course those ranch wife confessions.
