MSU's local beef initiative

Proud to be a Spartan.
Last week I posted a You Tube video about Michigan State University raising beef cattle to supply the residence halls with beef raised on campus. This is an excellent way to explain to students first hand how beef travels from pasture to plate. There are several students removed from the farm that will now gain insight on how food reaches their dinner table. Students can be assured they are incorporating a healthy product into diet. Beef is jam packed with Zinc, Iron, Protein and Vitamin B12. When college midterms are at there peak and students are stressed to the high heavens they can relax knowing they're energizing their brains with safe, wholesome, nutritious beef.
The Lansing State Journal published the article. Read about how the cattle were raised and the QR code technology being developed to identify how the product was raised (grain-fed, grass-fed, hormone-free).

You can also support MSU Beef by purchasing EAT BEEF Merchandise from the MSU Purebred Beef Center.
