  • Chronicling Beefs Change from Gate to Plate

Leaner Beef Changes in Breeding

Leaner Beef Changes in Feeding
Cattle receive feed that is rationed and balanced
by professional nutritionists.
Animal feed ingredients are used to help optimize
cattle nutrient intake and maintain their natural
muscle building ability, leading to high-quality
lean muscle and less external fat.
Leaner Beef Trimming External Fat
The cattle communitys War on Fat successfully
reduced the amount of external trim on retail
beef cuts.
Leaner Beef Calling Industry To Action
The beef industry must begin a comprehensive
effort to reduce fatness of retail beef cuts
The implications of the study challenge the
traditional production practices and marketing
systems in the beef industry. However, a
consumer-driven industry listens and re-directs
its approaches from point of sale back through
the production chain. --Texas AM Scientists

Leaner Beef Trimming External Fat
Sirloin Then
Sirloin Now
Through increased retail trimming, beef external
fat has decreased 80 in the past 20 years
Calculated from Cross et al., 1986 and Mason et
al., 2006

Lean Beef Easy to Find and Popular
  • 65 of beef cuts in the fresh meat case are lean.
  • Many of Americans favorite cuts such as
    Tenderloin, Strip Steak and 93 percent lean
    Ground Beef are lean.

USDA updates nutrient database identifying 7 beef
cuts as lean
US Govt issues first Dietary Guidelines for
SR 16 19 lean cuts
SR 24 38 lean cuts
National Market Basket Study assessed nutrient
comp of beef cuts at retail
Analyzed nutrient comp of beef cuts with 1/8 trim
Analyzed nutrient comp of beef cuts with ¼ trim
SR 18 released 29 lean cuts
National Consumer Beef Retail Study sparked
reduced trim levels for retail beef cuts
SR 23 released USDA releases final rule on
Nutrition Labeling
As of March 1, 2012, all retailers must comply
with Mandatory Nutrition Labeling URMIS
nomenclature updated
SR 14 releasedincludes beef with ¼ and 0 trim
Dietary Goals for American People released--call
for reduction in foods high in fat and high in
animal fat
