Air2Ground GROUND

Colonel’s Blog, Earthdate 5 July 2024…

Hey Y’all!

Good evening and happy Fast-Jet Friday from Air2 Ground Farms/Meats! The fast jets today are the Mighty-Mighty F-15E Strike Eagle flying low in Wales this week. If you've ever wondered how they get these amazing pics, the second pic shows the scene. I’d also like to wish you a happy Independence Day! I hope you were able to do something that allowed you to exercise your freedom. We cranked up the big smoker and smoked 4 pork butts for our Ava Walmart and 1 for us to enjoy with friends. We also threw a couple of whole chickens on the Weber for the folks at Walmart that have alpha gal and can’t enjoy red meat. This week has been all about hauling hay! We started Monday morning and hauled until Wednesday evening. Tuesday afternoon, Shelley opened the store and Makaylah helped me. The gentleman from whom we purchased the hay allowed us to use his big flat-bed trailer. We loaded it down with 23 large round bales the first 3 trips, 21 the 4th trip, and 20 for trips 5-7 totaling 150 bales. We then loaded 10 bales on our trailer and delivered them to our friends. It may not sound like a lot of work, but especially with the heat this week, it sure takes it out of you. I stacked the hay in 2 layers to decrease the overall ground footprint and to keep some of it off of the ground. At some point during the day Tuesday, (and since there is no flat ground here in the Ozarks) 3 of the top bales fell off and crushed the fence behind the stack. Of course, of the 10 or so pastures we have, the cows happened to be in that one. So, I came home with load 6 to cows out, fence crushed, bales no longer stacked, and still needed to haul 2 more loads. Instead of going to pick up the next load, Shelley and I patched fence. 3 years into this farming gig, we didn’t freak out, we just put the cows back in, cut down some small trees so I could get to the bales, re-stacked the bales, and patched the fence. It was so hot on Wednesday that we lost 5 beef chickens. It’s a known risk when raising them through the extreme heat of summer. The rest of the animals are handling the heat and are doing well. Today, I want to talk with you about ground beef…grass-fed, single animal, farm raised ground beef to be specific.

When it comes to choosing ground beef, the source and quality of the meat are paramount. At Air2Ground Meats, our ground beef comes from a single animal, not a mix of hundreds or even thousands. This means you know exactly what you’re getting—pure, high-quality beef with unparalleled flavor and nutritional benefits. Grass-fed beef is often praised for its superior nutrient profile. Compared to grain-fed beef, grass-fed beef has higher levels of essential micronutrients, including: Omega-3 Fatty Acids: These are crucial for heart health and are found in higher concentrations in grass-fed beef. Omega-3s help reduce inflammation and may lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and arthritis. Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA): Grass-fed beef contains more CLA, which is linked to a variety of health benefits, including improved immune function and reduced body fat. Vitamins and Minerals: Grass-fed beef is rich in vitamins A and E, and it contains higher levels of antioxidants, which help combat oxidative stress and inflammation. Ground beef, in general, offers several health benefits over steak due to the inclusion of various parts of the animal, such as connective tissues, fat, and other muscle groups. These components provide: Collagen and Gelatin: Found in connective tissues, these proteins support joint health, skin elasticity, and gut health. Amino Acids: Ground beef includes a broader range of amino acids from different muscle cuts, contributing to muscle repair and overall health. Vitamins and Minerals: More diverse cuts can lead to higher levels of certain vitamins and minerals, like zinc, iron, and B vitamins. Ground beef provides a nutrient-dense option, combining benefits from multiple cuts of meat that you may not get from a single steak or roast. The health benefits alone—ranging from better heart health to reduced inflammation—make grass-fed ground beef a worthwhile investment in your well-being. Moreover, knowing that your ground beef comes from a single, well-cared-for animal adds peace of mind about the quality and safety of your food. At Air2Ground Meats, our ground beef is derived from a single animal, unlike the ground beef from large commercial producers, where a single patty can contain meat from hundreds or even thousands of different animals. A study by the University of Nebraska found that a McDonald's Quarter Pounder could contain DNA from over 1,300 different animals. Similarly, Clear Labs' research revealed the presence of unexpected DNA in fast food burgers, including human and rat DNA. These findings highlight the importance of traceability and quality in meat production. That’s the scoop on grass-fed ground beef and why our ‘Air2Ground GROUND’ stands out!

Sunday's video was a look inside our new store, where we show you Air2Ground Meats Local Market. We discussed how local meat markets are a great alternative to grocery store meat.

Thursday's Dust'er Mud Podcast was an update regarding Chevron Doctrine. The Supreme Court recently gave Big Government the smack-down which we gladly discussed!

Cheers! Psycho & Shelley
