I have two reasons why I wanted to learn more about beef and the beef industry. The first reason was due to my own health reasons, I had to pay close attention to what I was eating, the best food that works for me is true whole food, things like beef, chicken, vegetables, something that you can either grow or raise with minimal processing. I learned that beef is very good for you and I found it really was useful for providing the nutrition I needed to allow my body to heal itself and be able to supply me with the nutrients I needed to be able to function on a daily basis.
The second reason I wanted to learn about the beef industry was to sort through the mounds of information that is available on the internet about beef. My personal opinion from the research I have done is that there is a lot more “wrong information” about beef and how it is raised than there is truthful and factual information about the beef industry. So instead of just believing what I read on the internet I set out on a mission to learn as much as I could on my own about beef, and the best source of information was from the people who actually raise and produce beef cattle.
There have been many people that have helped me along my journey to learn about beef, one person that has done a phenomenal job of breaking down the science in the beef world to a level I can understand is a young talented lady by the name of Brianna Buseman.
I asked Brianna to give me a brief description of what drives her to want to teach others about beef, here is what she wrote:
I grew up on a farm and understand the amount of work and care that goes into producing a high quality product. I share about meat science because I want other people to see that too. I am not a nutritionist, but I know that meat is good for you and an important part of the diet. I share about meat science because I want other people to see that too. The meat industry (the entire production process) provides food and financial stability for people worldwide. Meat is a core part of the diet around the world and it takes a lot of hands to get that product to the consumer. The opportunities to be a part of that production cycle are seemingly endless. I share about meat science because I want other people to see that too. And finally, I just think it is really interesting. I remember being in my first meat science class and just being amazed by the amount of science that goes into something as seemingly simple as a steak. I think it’s amazing and I want other people to see that too.
Brianna has a podcast that I enjoy listening to because it is very informative, it is easy to follow along with and even easier to understand what she is talking about. You do not have to be someone in the beef industry to enjoy her podcasts and come away learning something. If you are wanting to learn more about the beef industry or just meat science in general then check out Brianna and her webpage at https://themeatingroom.home.blog/ On her webpage there is also a section where you can check out her podcasts, I urge you to check out a few of them, I think you will enjoy what she has to say as much as I do.
