Steak news is something that most Americans have not been keeping up with, mainly because they tend to focus on chicken and pork. The beef industry however has been growing in recent years and the fact that there are hundreds of different types of beef cuts available only serves to fuel demand. There is also a great amount of controversy over the treatment of animals used for beef manufacturing. Most consumers have very little understanding about how the beef industry works and what their role is. This is not an easy task when you consider the amount of beef products that are sold in America each and every day.
The beef industry is one of the most important players in the meat industry. There is so much riding on the decision of where the cattle were born, raised and slaughtered as well as the way that they were killed. Cattle farming is a crucial part of the American economy and without farmers there would not be beef, dairy, poultry and even eggs available. In fact the meat industry is the largest employer in the state of Mississippi.
