That a turn you against sex for sure Carl, oh wait we talking about beef ,sorry
I always heard it said I’m not eating anything that bleeds for a week and doesn’t die lol.
medium rare. thats the ticket, for steak. anything else, make up your own mind... just enjoy.
I was offered a young uncut bull that kept busting my neighbor’s fence and hitting my food plots hard, (had to reseed some). Grass fed (not fat) but young. I said no because i was really busy at the time and didnt want to mess with it, and wasn’t “finished” in regards to feeding. I caught him in my garden and shut the gate pinning him in so technically he was finished on my damned garden lol.
My question is would this beef have been delicious and tender because this animal was young and probably only 500-600lbs (a guess) or would it have still been tough due to grass diet an no fat?
Good to go if you aren't stuck on Prime Beef. Be the best burger you ever had. But, that's my opinion, and I eat at McDonald's.
It’s the grass he was finished on that’s the flavor.
Food plot = clover great , turnips not so much.
drakeshooter and I like beer so we like wagu steaks LMAO
500 hundred pounds should have been like budder
My sis an bro-in-law, got some beef once, from a 12 year old bull. fell on the ice an broke a leg. said it was the tenderest meat they ever had. on the other hand, took a young steer to be processed, 1 of 6, to taylorsville. before that, i never seen grey meat, tough as shoe soles. ever so often, i like a McDouble. has cheese, two paddies. i remember when they were a dollar. but then, i remember when WC's where 9 cents.
If that calf was still sucking milk from his mother , he would have been goooood eating .
He was staying out from his herd so I tend to think his mother may have died or weaned him . He could have been bought as a calf and turned out .
When in doubt , burgers is always the way . If you kill one and are worried about tender and flavor . Cut a steak and try it out before cutting the whole animal up . If one steak is tender then the rest should follow.
If he is a 600 pound uncut bull, that tells me that he probably hasn't been cared for in other ways. A younger calf is more tender, but if this calf had been forced to scrounge for food - which I'm led to believe he was because he was getting out - if he didn't have adequate, readily available water and if he had not been wormed and he had to fight flies while eating he could have been older than you think. Also, bulls do not marble as well as steers.
We like grass fed beef, but we do our best to make sure that we do everything else we can - including great genetics - to insure tender beef.
My answer to your question would be that the steaks would most likely not have been as tender as you would have liked. The burgers and roasts would have been fine.
Genetics definitely come into play.
Not great pics but to give you an idea.
