The number one factor that keeps most people from considering bulk Marble Hill beef buys is the upfront cost. We realize it can be unfriendly to a family food budget to incur the cost of a year’s worth of beef at once. For this reason, Ozark Prime Beef offers an easy, interest-free payment plan that allows the cost to be spread from order date to delivery. You can order now for January-March delivery and get every cut of beef for approximately $1.44 per serving! Buying Marble Hill beef buys saves you money not just on ground beef – but also on every T-bone, ribeye, chuck or rib roast! Imagine getting “steakhouse” quality and flavor for less than $2.00 per serving 🙂
How Marble Hill Beef Buys Save Money
When you buy your beef from a local Ozark Prime Beef farm or ranch, you pay the same cost for every cut. So when calculating your savings be sure to consider that, while ground beef might be less per pound in the store, when averaged over the price of your steaks, roasts, stew meat, kabob chunks, stirfry strips, etc. – the price you’re paying for bulk beef buys is comparable or less. Now, factor in that you’re going to be enjoying all-natural, grass-fed, grain-finished beef from a local source where the animal was humanely cared for and lived a stress-free life. Compare the cost per serving to the grass-fed premium beef in the supermarket and see the savings really add up!
How Marble Hill Beef Buys Save Time
Calculate the amount of time you spend deciding what to make for meals, and shopping to find the best buys on the meat for meals. Just opening up your freezer to enjoy a supply of healthy, all-natural beef beats a run to the grocery store hands down. Stocking up on pasture-raised beef means you can incorporate a healthy, farm-to-table beef meal whenever you like.
Trips to the grocery store for veggies and staples can be a lot quicker with a freezer packed full of protein. If your family enjoys cooking and eating meals at home, that includes different cuts of beef several times per week – then having quality beef on hand will definitely save you time.
How Marble Hill Beef Buys Promote Better Health
When buying conventional meat at the grocery store, we often look for bargains to cut the cost – but at what price to our health? In some areas, you may have trouble finding antibiotic-free, hormone-free beef for less than $6 per pound for just ground beef. If you abhor the idea of feeding your family absorbing growth hormones or other drugs found in factory-produced foods, feeding pasture-raised beef is a much healthier route. Marble Hill beef buys allow you to feed your family higher amounts of key nutrients, including antioxidants, vitamins, and a beneficial fat called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) tied to improved immunity and anti-inflammatory benefits.
For the most part, all beef cattle start on grass after weaning but at some point, conventional factory-raised cattle are switched to concentrated feed. A concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO), as defined by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is an animal feeding operation (AFO) — a farm in which animals are raised in confinement. CAFO cattle are expected to grow fast and a natural diet of grass takes too long and requires too much grazing space. These farms mass produce meat for the lowest possible cost, and that means cattle are fed an unnatural diet of genetically modified soy, corn, and by-product feedstuff. There are some creative cattle nutritionists that get creative and feed cotton byproducts, old candy (and the wrappers), beet and citrus pulp, or peanut shells.
Ozark Prime Beef cattle are pasture-raised and eat graminoids, rushes, and true grasses, as well as shrubs, clovers and random leaves they can reach. Naturally, these herds eat whatever is within reach, green, and leafy. They get steady lifelong access to open pastures, clean Missouri spring water, shady rolling hills, and sunshine. In the winter months, or just prior to harvest if grain-finished, their diet is supplemented with grain. Grass-fed, pastured animals eat more nutritious food most of their life than CAFO beef cattle. It stands to reason that pastured, grain-supplemented beef raised on good soil by good ranchers also contains higher levels of micronutrients when compared to the CAFO cattle.
Remember, while pure grass-fed beef is probably healthier than anything else, a grass-fed label will not make up for poor foraging and the result will be stringy, tough, unpalatable beef compared with incredible grain-finished Ozark Prime Beef.
