Yawn … will there be a test on this stuff ???

Greetings Carnivores,

Today my post is going to put the finishing touches on yesterdays discussion regarding inspection and Grading.  This stuff is pretty dry but … here’s the rest of it.

The Grades themselves are broken down as follows:

1. GRADE A – Youthful animals, High quality.
This grade is broken down into four divisions, A1 through A4, depending on the amount of fat covering on the forth quadrant of rib eye between the 11th and 12th ribs.

2. GRADE B – youthful animals, poorer quality.
Again, four divisions, B1 through B4, depending on fat covering as in A1-4.

3. GRADE C – Intermediate aged animals.

4. GRADE D – Mature cows.

5. GRADE E – Mature bulls.

GRADE A is marked with a RED ‘ribbon’ brand, GRADE B with BLUE, GRADE C with BROWN, and GRADES D and E are both marked with BLACK.
