US Beef Industry Update –
Historic Reopening of China to U.S. Beef - National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Craig Uden issued the following statement regarding the announcement from the White House that an agreement has been reached that will restore U.S. beef access to China: “After being locked out of the world’s largest market for 13 years, we strongly welcome the announcement that an agreement has been made to restore U.S. beef exports to China. It’s impossible to overstate how beneficial this will be for America’s cattle producers. We look forward to providing nearly 1.4 billion new customers in China.
Cattle prices have increased 24% since the October 2016 lows. However, Nature's Gourmet Farm has actually decreased many of our prices. Here is a comparison of our premium grassfed beef as compared to Corner Market and Winn Dixie CAFO beef.
NOTE: my website would not copy/paste the matrix from my newsletter. Bottom line:
Corner Market- $3458
Winn Dixie - $3186
Nature's Gourmet Farm - $3233
Seven Sons - $4534
*Corner Market & Winn Dixie are both CAFO grain-fed beef - poor stewardship of the Earth, Environment and animals
**Nature's Gourmet Farm & Seven Sons are both premium grass-fed beef and believe in Stewardship, accountability, and personal responsibility for caring for our Earth, Environment, and our Animals.
NOTE: the #/cut is from an actual whole steer processed by NGF in 2016. Hanging weight was 678#. Buying the whole steer Custom Processed vs. individual cuts would cost $2725 - a $508 savings.
At only $3.50/lb. our Custom Processed Halves are the best family value - and 20% less than local competition.
