1 Rustler Ridge Org Grnd Beef Presentation Dec09

  1. 1. Frozen ORGANIC - Grass Fed Ground BEEF
  2. 2. Why Organic Grass Fed Beef? Our organic cattle are raised without antibiotics, growth-stimulating hormones or fed animal source protein. In compliance with the Organic Standard, our organic cattle have been raised on pasture all of their lives, are never fed anything but organic pasture grasses, which are "certified organic" and meet a multitude of strict criteria. Our organic grass fed cattle eat what nature designed them to eat, insuring their health and yours. Benefits of Organic Grass Fed Beef A recent comprehensive study conducted by the USDA and researchers from Clemson University found that compared with corn-fed beef, grass-fed beef is higher in beta-carotene, vitamin E, omega-3s, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), calcium, magnesium and potassium; and lower in saturated fats that have been linked to heart disease.
  3. 3. What is Mad Cow Disease (BSE) and how is it spread? Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), frequently called Mad Cow Disease, is a degenerative neurological disease affecting the central nervous system of cattle. BSE affects older cattle, typically over 30 months of age. According to the latest science, BSE does not spread from animal to animal; the only way BSE spreads is through contaminated protein supplements in cattle feed such as animal source protein. Our Organic Cattle are raised without antibiotics, growth-stimulating hormones or fed animal source protein in compliance with the Organic Standard. Certified Organic vs. Natural Beef, What is the Difference? Natural Beef is more commonly seen in the grocery stores now, but one needs to know that natural does not mean certified organic. The USDA has defined natural as "No artificial ingredients and minimally processed." Thanks to this somewhat loose definition the term 'natural' has been widely abused and can mislead the consumer.
  4. 4. U.S. organic sales grow by a whopping 17.1 percent in 2008 While the overall economy has been losing ground, sales of organic products reflect very strong growth during 2008. “Organic products represent value to consumers, who have shown continued resilience in seeking out these products,” said Christine Bushway, OTA’s Executive Director. The survey, conducted by Lieberman Research Group on behalf of OTA, measured the growth of U.S. sales of organic foods and beverages as well as non-food categories such as organic fibers, personal care products and pet foods during 2008. Results show organic food sales grew in 2008 by 15.8 percent to reach $22.9 billion, while organic non-food sales grew by an astounding 39.4 percent to reach $1.648 billion. As a result, organic food sales now account for approximately 3.5 percent of all food product sales in the United States. The Organic Trade Association (OTA) is the membership-based business association for organic agriculture and products in North America. Its 1,600 members include growers, shippers, processors, certifiers, farmers' associations, distributors, importers, exporters, consultants, retailers and others. OTA's mission is to promote and protect the growth of organic trade to benefit the environment, farmers, the public and the economy (www.ota.com).
