Today & Everyday

Beef continues it's tradition as America's preferred meat. Studies prove there are significant differences in beef quality from the various cattle breeds. One breed carries a unique gene that consistently produces beef that is lean, tender, low in cholesterol & rich in Essential Fatty Acids - Piedmontese.

Piedmontese Beef has consistently proven in USDA studies to be more Tender Beef while also being the Leanest Beef of breeds com- pared. It is a genetic feature of the breed.

Polyunsaturated Fats contain those "good" Essential Fatty Acids(EFA) that our bodies can not make, but must receive from our food. Essential Fatty Acids are known to improve disease resistance & overall health, nourish the brain, & may reduce cholestreol.

"For consumers concerned about the healthfulness of the lipids (fats) they consume, the Piedmontese 2-copy genotype produced the leanest product with lipids that were composed of the most beneficial fatty acid profile of the geno compared."

Piedmontese Beef Actually Cooks Faster!

Cooking Time is Reduced – A real asset in today's busy lifestyle. (Reduce cooking time by one-third to one-half, depending on personal preference)

The American Heart Association recommends

300mg (or less) of dietary cholesterol per day. One serving of Piedmontese 1-copy Beef amounts to 20% of this daily allowance. Nutrient Rich, a good source of Essential Fat ty Acids, low in Saturated Fats, Calories & Cholesterol - but Flavorful & Tender...

Piedmontese Beef ... Every Time.

As a weight percent of total fats, Piedmontese Beef has the highest amounts of the "good" Polyunsaturated Fats and the highest percentages of Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids; for example, "DHA" - the brain food.

Quality Beef
Today's Healthful Lifestyle


These unique cattle have evolved over centuries in a pure environment and are, today, a truly efficient animal genetically designed to produce low-fat, tender beef.

The Piedmontese is the only cattle breed known to carry a specific gene that consistently reduces fat and increases tenderness in the beef. A true fullblood Piedmontese animal will carry 2 copies of this gene, while a crossbred may carry 1 copy of the gene. Here in North America, the Piedmontese influence gives us a choice in our beef fat content levels.

1-copy Piedmontese Beef will be significantly leaner than traditional beef, while the 2-copy Piedmontese Beef will be ultra-lean.
