Christmas is the best day of the year.
But, if you ask me, the runner up is: The Day All the Cows and Calves are Out to Pasture.
It should be a state holiday.
We should order fireworks and cake and maybe even a keg (not for me, of course).
This momentous, historic, wonderful day happened for us just last week.
Everyone breathed a big, huge sigh of relief.
The Importance of Pasture & Protein
Did you know, about 85% of the land in the United States that is used for grazing cattle is unsuitable for growing crops?*
This means that cows are sort of like scavengers. If America’s ranchers (and the cows) were not using this land to produce beef – it would be…well, unused.
Grazing cattle on pasture more than doubles the area that can be used to raise food.
If you are a growing kid, an athlete, or someone interested in maintaining your health – protein is very important.
That’s why The Day All the Cows and Calves are Out to Pasture is the second best day of the whole dang, darn year!
