On this page you will learn what is made from the beef by-products that is common household products. Any questions can be e-mailed to the address below and will be answered as prompt as possiable. The only dumb question is the one not asked so please ask any questions you may have. Cattle are recyclers In addition to grazing on grass, cattle eat non-edible by-products of food production such as potato skins, fruit pits, almond hulls and sugar beet pulp. This greatly reduces the amount of waste that goes into our nationís landfills.
WHEN IT IS A MEAL

We normally think of beef as a hamburger, steak or delicious roast for a satisfying meal. But there are other edible parts besides the protein-packed muscle. The variety meats such as liver, heart, tounge, kidneys and sweetbreads are just a few of the tasty alternatives that are used in gourmet dishes.
Did you know that the gelatins in such products as ICE CREAM and YOGURT are made from the hooves, horns, hide and bones of the cow?
Perhaps you enjoy chicken now and then. Well it might amaze you to find out that FEEDS for poultry contain blood meal and/or fatty acids from BEEF!

WHEN IT'S A PHARMACY
The medical world also relies on the resource for the pharmaceutial wonders it produces and uses. This is because cattle have great similarities in organic chemical structure to humans. Our bodies will easily accept a medication or treatment made with these animal componets. Some products are synthesized. However, many are still made from beef animals as they are much more economical without having to sacrifice any quality, whether they are used in surgery, research or routine health care.

WHEN IT GETS US THERE
YES, BEEF BY-PRODUCTS are used in all sorts of mechanical items. Chemical manufacturers use numerous fatty acids from indiable beef fats and proteins for all of LUBRICANTS and FLUIDS. ANTIFREEZE contains glycerol derived from fatty acids to keep your car running cool. TIRES have steric acid which makes the rubber hold its shape under contiunous surface friction. Glue from colloidial proteins has been used in AUTOMOBILE BODIES. Even the ASPHALT on our roadways has a binding agent from fat.
