Primghar, Iowa — May is beef month — and the O’Brien County Cattlemen are going to be celebrating and helping to educate consumers about Iowa beef.
Merv Hoermann with the O’Brien County Cattlemen says they’ve decided to try something different this year. They’re going to do a beef trivia contest on KIWA.[audio:http://www.kiwaradio.com/files/Hoermann1.mp3|titles=Hoermann1]
Hoermann says they want to showcase beef this month, and tell people all the benefits of eating healthy lean beef.[audio:http://www.kiwaradio.com/files/Hoermann2.mp3|titles=Hoermann2]
He says everyone knows about some of the cuts of beef, but they also like to promote some of the newer cuts, as some are leaner, and some are cut differently to be less expensive.[audio:http://www.kiwaradio.com/files/Hoermann3.mp3|titles=Hoermann3]
Hoermann says you can find information online about cooking different cuts of beef. One of the resources he mentioned is the Iowa Beef Industry Council web site at iabeef.org.
The May Beef Month Beef Trivia contest will start on Thursday morning during the Chunk and Punk morning show. Again, be listening to win a $20 beef certificate.
As a side note, Hoermann says make sure to look for them on the Monday and Tuesday of the O’Brien County fair this summer. They’ll be serving their hamburgers and ribeye sandwiches. The fair this year is set for July 21st through 26th.
