The Beef Lifecycle

The journey of raising beef is among the most complex of any food.  Across this process, however, one important thing remains constant – and that’s the beef community’s shared commitment to raising cattle in a safe, humane and environmentally sustainable way.  Working together, each segment of the beef lifecycle aims to make the best use of vital natural resources like land, water and energy – not just for today, but also for the future.  The result is a delicious and nutritious food you can feel good about serving your family and friends.

Nutrition

Like the farmers and ranchers who choose how best to raise their cattle for beef, you have choices when it comes to the beef you buy. Cattle are raised responsibly and beef is wholesome and nutritious – but you may see a variety of statements that reflect different production practices on beef packages in your grocery store or on a menu.  The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) approves these labels for beef based on specific criteria.
