Do you have questions about meat and pink slime?

Lean Finely Textured Beef

The grass is turning green
at our farm. 
Hi, friends! Sorry about the lack of presence on the Crystal Cattle blog last week. As mentioned I was down in Oklahoma for a youth event, and I can't wait to show you some of the pictures and video I took. I hope you were following the Crystal Cattle Facebook page because I was able to post some interesting stuff there.

While I was in the Sooner state there was a lot of media coverage about Pink Slime or its proper name Lean Finely Textured Beef. Sometimes the media doesn't quite get it right. I would ask that you watch this video about Lean Finely Textured Beef. I learned a ton myself, and know that this product is safe, nutritious, and that the citric acid or ammonia that is used to reduce bacteria in the meat is no longer present in the product when I consume ground beef.

Also, I thought it was interesting that we would need 1.5 million more cattle to fulfill beef demand if we didn't use Lean Finely Textured Beef. Where would be put all those cows, or find the grass and corn to feed them.

You can find more information about Lean Finely Textured Beef at Pink Slime isa Myth. And be sure to share this video with your friends that have questions. Hope you enjoy the first day of spring!


  1. Thanks for sharing that video!

  2. Hey Crystal, can you tell me where you got that 1.5 million fact? I'd like to use it in a blog post.

    1. Katie, that fact come from the video itself. You might be able to find it on the American Meat Institute website.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from all my readers. Hope you have a fabulous day.
