What about local beef?

Marj Perry

Perhaps Anne Owsley would be interested in purchasing grass-fed beef from a local rancher in the valley. It’s delicious, healthy and supports families in the valley. The cows graze the forests in the summer and enjoy hay from valley pastures in the winter.

Grass-fed beef has a high omega-3 fatty-acid content, monounsaturated oils, and stearic acid. It also contains conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). Grass-fed beef has about the same fat content as skinless chicken or wild deer or elk. When meat is lean, it actually lowers your LDL cholesterol.

If you are interested in more information about grass-fed beef, call Cold Mountain Ranch at 963-2019.
