|For the first time since the devastating drought years of 2011-2013, demand for Nitschke Natural All Pasture Beef has exceeded our capacity to produce it. We all know by now that it’s not just us experiencing this. Meat has been in short supply everywhere, and due to several situations with processing plants and industrial-sized supply chain breakdowns, that’s not likely to change very soon. Foreign-raised beef “sneaking” into the good ol’ USofA under the claim “Product of the USA” has people hopping mad and with good reason. |
Us American ranchers also feel the weight of the disastrous vote in 2015 to repeal the Country of Origin Label (COOL) legislation which threw that door wide open to cheaper-to-produce beef from foreign sources and replace our own American meat in grocery store coolers and restaurant walk-ins. And don’t you want to know why it’s cheaper to produce? It’s not like American ranchers and farmers are raking in the dough – quite the opposite, in fact. We feel the squeeze constantly from those whom we contract with to make our meat available to the public.
We deal with a massive supply chain machine in the VAST majority of cases that we have no control over. Direct sales of meat from rancher to final consumer are actually an extremely low percentage of meat sales. If you’re part of our NNBeef community, you should be feeling pretty savvy and quite unique!
All that to say, one of the really great things to come out of all of this is a greater awareness of AND concern about where our food comes from and if it really feeds our bodies as well as our immune system needs it to.
Protein plays a huge role in keeping our immune system fully functional and, as you know, pasture-raised beef is super nutrient-dense protein. Cattle, like ours, that graze on a salad bar of diverse pasture forages (that grow in healthy, microbe-rich soil) are able to select the plants that provide the nutrition they need that day to optimize their health, which translates to YOUR health.
There’s never been a more important time than right now to vote for optimal nutrition and small American family ranches and farms.
