What do paint, lipstick, charcoal, and footballs have in common? They are all essential items we use in our lives and come from cattle. By Harris Ranch Beef Company.
The main reason we raise cattle is for the delicious beef they produce. What is left over is called a byproduct. When we harvest a beef animal, about 60% of that animal becomes beef. The remaining 40% includes skin, fat, bones, tendons, organs, etc. Here is where byproducts become especially important. We can’t waste half an animal! But we can use those items in inventive and innovative ways to help make our lives easier.
