I always wondered about a "Schwan's frozen food" model. Have a truck deliver on a route.......maybe at a spot in a town at a certain time everyday at a certain day. Or set up at closing time some where and maybe handle nothing but 5 pound or 1 pound packs of hamburger. Once you had customers you could then approach them with mailed products.You would almost have to set up an around the year butchering schedule.....or maybe not.

I assume that a lot of people don't have a "chest deep freezer" at home. That makes it unlikely that people would choose to buy a half of beef or whatever.

Would the Milking Shorthorn gene pool have something to offer as far as marbling or tenderness? Maybe the old Hubs herd bull semen would be a place to start tenderness tests. They say that the Holstein cattle are good eating.

I thought that maybe this needed its own thread. I wondered if there needed to be more discussion on this. Does the breed differentiate itself with tenderness of carcass? Is there a business model for it. If the breed is mostly comprised of small herds.....what would happen if each herd sold a locker beef every year?

I thought that it was the Angus and Belgium Blue that had the same variation. nt 821.

If the breed differentiates itself with a tenderness advantage.........seems like we need to direct market the product somehow. Easier said than done.

Could the Angus have gotten it through some Belgium Blue funny business.....I wonder out loud?

I bought him at the first Smoky Y Ranch Red Angus sale. They may have bought him in dam or something. Smoky Y has a hell of good herd now. They have an annual bull sale.

I used a Red Angus naturally. He was a "Detour" son. The calves were easy calving........stlyish......and they came up a hair short on growth. I'm shooting for a smaller cow though.
