    FARM SCENE: Beef Marketers Pushing a New Kind of Steak After Intense Study and Chewing

    Published: Nov 7, 2001

    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - It started with a search for a cut of beef as tasty and tender as the choicest steak, yet affordable enough for the average family to eat every day.

    Researchers soon discovered the flat iron.

    The steak, cut from deep within the shoulder muscle known as the chuck, is rather tender considering it has little fat. It tastes like a New York strip but costs about half as much as a choice filet or strip.

    The cut was discovered during a three-year study by the University of Nebraska's Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources and the University of Florida.

    What researchers came up with was not just one new cut of beef, but five, from the chuck and round sections - cheaper parts of the animal usually used for inexpensive roasts, stew pieces and ground beef.

    The hope is the new steaks will increase the value of beef for everyone from producers to retailers. At the same time, industry officials say, consumers will have a high-quality product that falls somewhere between high-priced steaks and relatively cheap boneless chicken.

    Two new cuts found in the chuck, called tender medallions and ranch cut steaks, can be marketed at a price competitive with pork and chicken. Two other cuts, the sirloin tip and western griller steaks, come from the round - the cow's hindquarters.

    But the flat iron is getting most of the industry's attention.

    "I can't believe we haven't sold this steak before," said Carl Blackwell, director of new product development with the National Cattlemen's Board Association in Chicago. "It's amazing how we've overlooked these steaks since ... well, the beginning of time, I guess."

    Old habits are hard to break, however, and meat cutting has been done the same way for generations. Some enterprising butchers, however, say they've been offering the flat iron cut for years.

    "I call it a Swiss steak," said Roy Toy with Leon's Food Mart in Lincoln, who said he came up with the cut while experimenting on a carcass. "It's not new, it's just that other retailers will sell them under different names ... butter steak or griller."

    Many of those cuts are close, Beef Council members say, but not quite the same as the flat iron. They said it takes special training to learn to get around layers of thick, tough connective tissue to get the cut.

    "We've created the encyclopedia of knowledge about the muscles of the beef chuck and round," University of Nebraska meat scientist Chris Calkins said. "The whole point is that there are muscles that were probably being ground or used in other products that had a lot more value than what was being recognized."

    Grocery stores have not yet started offering the new cuts under the Beef Council's marketing names, since meat processors and grocery store butchers must first learn how to cut the new steaks.

    "It's rather labor-intensive," said Klaus Brotzki with Aksarben Beef, which sells meat to eastern Nebraska restaurants.

    Brotzki attended a recent Nebraska Beef Council workshop on the University of Nebraska's Lincoln campus that demonstrated how to carve out the new cuts. While they may not be easy to find, they're tasty enough to try, he said.

    "Everywhere I go, people ask me, 'What do you hear about this flat iron steak?'" he said.

    Selected restaurants on the East Coast that are sampling the flat iron are beginning to clamor for the new cut.

    Michael J. Beriau, top chef at Dole and Bailey Inc. of Woburn, Mass., began experimenting with the flat iron about three years ago at the request of the National Beef Council. He liked it so much, he had his in-house butchers begin cutting the steak for his clients.

    "We've gone from selling 200 pounds a week to 2,200 pounds a week of the flat iron," he said. "People love it. They get a fantastic, tasty, tender steak. And they don't have to pay as much for it."

    Well... I'd use some "200 mph" duct tape and tape the monkey-wrench inside the engine cowl so that it didn't get sucked up immediately, but would eventually be torn loose from the airflow and the vibration. But we'll never know because it won't be tracable, just like the anthrax.

    And the airlines are deemed so important to national security that it will probably be classified anyway.

    "Come on. Be serious. Or at least wait for some evidence."

    When an incident is "covered up," you don't see the evidence. That's why they call it a "cover up," I'm told.

    General Meyers, on all TV networks in an interview recently, stated that the al Qaeda terrorits have "300 to 400 Stinger missiles." (anti-aircraft missiles) I'm not saying it was a Stinger, yet.

    I just looked at a New York City map and this American A-300 Air Bus went down very fast on the direct egress flight route from JFK.

    The F.B.I., F.A.A., N.T.S.B., and the White House can deny all they want, but this was too coincidental to be anything BUT a terrorist attack. It's Veteran's Day. it's an American flight, it's from JFK, it's in New York, an it crashed in Mike Moran's neighborhood.

    Looks to me that Usama just kissed Mike Moran's a$$.

    The government will cover it up to keep the airlines in business, just like they did Flight 800.

    "The trouble was, nobody at the school knew anything about an "Ames strain"—whether it was the strain of anthrax infecting the mail, whether the Iowa State lab had ever possessed it, or even whether there was such a thing as an "Ames strain."

    It would appear that this entire New Yorker article is bogus and more disinformation similar to a recent article in the New Yorker by Seymour Hersh that accused the Petagon of a US Army Ranger raid coverup of the casualties. It appears the New Yorker even failed to interview the correct lab in their research for this article.

    New National Facility for USDA Animal Health

    • Overview

    USDA is proposing to build a new, $379 million (FY 99 figures), facility in Ames, Iowa, to meet national needs for animal health research, diagnosis and product evaluation and to replace existing facilities that are antiquated and inefficient. The proposed facility would modernize and update USDA facilities in Ames, Iowa, for the ARS National Animal Disease Center (NADC), APHIS National Veterinary Services Laboratories (NVSL) and the APHIS Center for Veterinary Biologics (CVB).

    Improving competitiveness in the world market, enhancing our nation's livestock industries, and protecting against emerging diseases more than ever depend on maintaining disease-free animals and ensuring that systems are in place to respond to disease outbreaks. Healthy livestock are fundamental to a safe food supply for the American public.

    Key industry groups, including the Animal Agriculture Coalition, the American Farm Bureau Federation and the U.S. Animal Health Association, among others, have strongly emphasized the urgent need for these new facilities. A 1999 national task force report to the Secretary of Agriculture clearly prioritizes the need for improved facilities for animal and plant infectious disease research conducted by the USDA.

    NADC was built in the early 1960's. NVSL was constructed in the late 1970's. Today, NADC, NVSL and CVB remain scientifically strong with well-focused programs, but the facilities have now reached the end of their design and structural lifespan. Investments have been made for repair and maintenance, but virtually every critical system - ventilation, electrical, sewage treatment, biocontainment, incineration and heating and cooling - is antiquated. In some cases, the original manufacturer of equipment still in use has gone out of business.

    The NVSL operates out of several buildings spread across the city of Ames. Diagnostic testing for transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, Anthrax, E. coli and Salmonella is done in leased space at a downtown strip mall. The status of these facilities seriously restrict USDA's world leadership role in animal health and diagnostic needs.

    The CVB-Laboratory is co-located at the main NVSL facility. However, the CVB-Inspection and Compliance staff is located 5 miles away from the main NVSL facility at the Aspen Park location. Recently, CVB-Licensing and Policy Development Staff was moved from Riverdale, Maryland, to Ames, adding an additional 29 employees to the now crowded Aspen Park location. The physical separation of these three CVB branches inhibits their ability to reach the customer service goals set by the Department.

    • Program needs for modernized facilities

    Besides the structural inadequacy of existing facilities, the overall needs for animal health work around the world have changed since the facilities were built. The U.S. national animal health program must keep abreast of these changes to ensure the strength of our animal industries and well-being of the public. Big changes include:

    • the emergence of significant new animal diseases around the world that threaten the U.S., such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (mad cow disease) in Europe.
    • threats to human welfare from infectious agents in food, such as Salmonella and E. coli
    • changes in international trade practices requiring more scientific evidence of "freedom from disease" before livestock commodities can be exported
    • the development of new international standards for biocontainment, animal handling, health, safety and quality assurance.

    It is critical that the U.S. is equipped to meet these new demands, because the 1998 value of livestock produced in our country amounted to almost $100 billion. Competition is tough. Competing nations; e.g., Australia, Canada and Germany, have, or will soon have, major new national animal disease facilities to meet animal health demands.

    Following a 1992 report highlighting the serious facility problems at NADC, ARS developed a master plan for NADC in 1997. Implementation of this plan was estimated to cost $330 million and take 19 years to complete. Independently, APHIS recognized its own building's shortcomings in 1988 and developed a master plan to upgrade its facility. In 1995 the project cost was $122 million and would take 10 years to complete. The total of the two separate projects was projected to exceed $450 million.

    In 1998, both agencies recognized an excellent new opportunity: to create a single new Center encompassing work of NADC, NVSL and CVB. The joint plan promises to provide many advantages over separate new facilities including a large cash saving and the much shorter completion time. The proposed facility will cost $379 million, providing a savings of $70 million over separate plans, and take only seven years to build. Besides new high biocontainment animal facilities and a new safe laboratory building, the existing NVSL main building would become the new administrative headquarters and the recently constructed incinerator necropsy facility would be part of the new master plan. Many obsolete components of the existing facilities will be demolished.

    The logic of bringing NADC-NVSL-CVB together is compelling, since this will lead to greater efficiencies of operation, even closer collaborative work and the fostering of a world-class animal disease research and service culture.

North America, including Canada and Mexico, has about a 200 year oil reserve. This war is about terrorism, not oil.

    Most any rancher or herder in the US or Pakistan and Afghanistan knows enough about anthrax to get it.

    About a dozen animals a year in the US die from anthrax and hundreds die each year from anthrax in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Billions of spores are in the soil below a dead aninmal.

    Anthrax is also called the "Fur Handler's Disease."

    There is even a location in the US (NW Nebraska) that has the "Mueseum of the Fur Trade (Chadron, Nebraska); deposits of bentonite (NW Sheridan county Nebraska); and anthrax outbreaks in cattle (26 dead 1994, Sheridan county herd).

    1,067 illegal alien potential terrorists from all over the world walked across the border in the backcountry of California today... and they will again tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after that.

    The Immigration and Naturalization Service (I&NS) reports 389,427 illegal aliens were caught crossing the border from Mexico into southern CA in fiscal year 1999.

    These are apprehensions, NOT total entries. Therefore, the total entries into California each year may be 500% higher (2,373,975) using fiscal year 1998's 474,795 apprehensions as a 20% rate of apprehension, or the total entries into California each year may be 1000% higher (4,747,950) using the same 474,795 figure as a 10% rate of apprehension. These California total entry estimates are based on the I&NS's own official numbers. The true numbers may be even higher. The apprehension figures declined from 1998 to 1999 because of an accounting change, not because of a real decrease in illegal immigration. After 1998, if the same illegal alien is caught crossing the border 25 times in a fiscal year, this fact is now recorded as only one crossing attempt apprehension. Illegal immigration is actually increasing not declining, and in 2000 and 2001 is occurring in even higher numbers in Arizona.

    I prefer the real world. I see a movie at least once every decade though.

    Special treatment of one group over the rest of us is always discrimination. Doesn't matter if it's called affirmative action, senior discounts, or free prescription drugs, and it will always cause much resentment.

    I listened to Ashcrofts's speech, and I didn't hear anything new.

    I don't get it?

    What's the difference between this situation and a Catholic church and an Islamic mosque being on the same block in New York City?

    Cooper sounds like a nut case to me.

    I never knew him, but I have lived in the Springerville-Egar-Greer-St. Johns, Arizona area. It's very rural and agricultural and not much there to do with the NWO that I'm aware of. Lots of pot heads and tweakers though.

    Regurgitated Taliban propaganda originally written by discredited liar Seymour Hersh in the New Yorker magazine. He's the same guy that accused U.S. Army General Barry McCaffrey and his 24th Division of massacring thousands of Iraqis during the Gulf War after the cease fire. This story proved to be totally false in four investigations, including two by the Army Inspector General and the Army's Criminal Investigation Division. And the Pentagon has denied his most recent lie as well. Hersh wrote the "My Lie" story, as well, in Vietnam.
