Dear John,
Summer Grazing

We hope this newsletter finds you with cooler weather than we have been experiencing in Northeast Missouri this week!  It has been hot and humid this week, but we have had plenty of rain so pastures are still green. 

Would you like to win $100 worth of US Wellness spending money? It's simple, just send us your favorite blue-ribbon-winning recipe.  In honor of summer fair season we want to hear about your best summertime recipes.  Visit our blog for more details and to submit your recipe!

Are you aware of all the benefits of free-range organ meats?  Pastured animals provide some of the healthiest organ meats and humans have been taking advantage of these health benefits for centuries.  The work of Dr. Weston A. Price shows how some of the healthiest cultures in the world valued organ meats above all others.  Read more about the history of organ meats and where you can find healthy sources on the Tender Grassfed Meat blog.  Our favorite way to incorporate organ meats into our diet is by enjoying one of our organ sausages - Braunschweiger, Liverwurst and Headcheese are all delicious and kids will actually eat them!

Steaks with 3-Herb OilUS Wellness Meats is pleased to introduce a new feature chef this month - Allison Lewis, food educator, nutritionist, and president and owner of Ingredients, Inc.  Her work is featured in numerous cooking magazines, blogs and television shows.  Read her interview to learn more and to get some inside cooking tips!  Her recipe for Steaks with 3-Herb Oil is easy and delicious so be sure to visit the feature chef page to read more.

Restocked steaks!  We are excited to see such a demand for grass-fed products, it is refreshing to see consumers realize the difference in grain-fed vs. grass-fed products and we are proud to carry such beneficial products.  Due to all this demand it has caused some steak shortages recently, no worries though, we have plenty of product, just not always enough time in the day for our meat cutters!  But they have been working overtime this week and some of our favorite steaks - Sirloin Tips, Sandwich Steaks and 6 oz. Filets are back in stock.

US Wellness Trivia Contest! 
The first 30 responders who email the answer to the following trivia question will receive a 15% discount code via email on Monday, which is good for 30 days.   "When Dr. Weston A. Price was in Africa studying the diets of primitive tribes, which group considered animal liver so sacred 'that it may not be touched by human hands...it is eaten both raw and cooked'?"  Please email your answers to blog@grasslandbeef.com.

Thanks to all who have been participating in our Trivia Contests! In the last news alert, we asked: President George Bush declared the first National Native American Indian heritage month on August 3 of what year?  The answer was: August 3, 1990.

Best Summer Regards,

John, Lee Ann, Megan, Tressa, and Jennifer, on behalf of the farm families of U.S. Wellness Meats

EMAIL QUESTIONS TO: eathealthy@grasslandbeef.com


Dear Dr. Serrano,

I'm 61 and exercise one hour daily (sit-ups, pushups, weight lifting with 10 kg dumbells, and some ab exercises). My problems are as follows:

1. While I have been doing exercises for the last 2 years, I have not been able to develop a good body (biceps, triceps, flat abs). I have lousy biceps and a lousy belly.

2. I do not seems to have energy. I'm unable to lift 15 kg dumbells.

3. Quite often, I have body pain in various parts of the body like elbows, wrists, shoulders and sometimes back pain.

What do you recommend?

Mr. Fareed


Dear Mr. Fareed,

I am sorry about your situation but you are going at it the wrong way.  You are trying to get stronger, bigger, and leaner but you are not discussing your diet.  Without the correct intake of macro nutrients you are not going anywhere, it doesn't matter what kind of exercises you do or perform.

The first thing you need to do is to make an appointment with your physician so you can have a physical and then get the proper labs including TSH, free T4, free T3, total and free testosterone, iron profile, PSA, insulin levels, Hgb1AC, CBC, B12, folate, chemical profile, and maybe mercury, lead and vitamin D, antiglidin, RF, crp and a sed rate.

Once you get the results and you correct your deficiencies then we can start with a correct exercise program which includes:
  • strength
  • flexibility
  • agility
  • power
  • endurance
If you correctly apply all the elements above you will be on your way to a better body and more physical power.

About your joint pains, make sure you are not consuming food that can affect your joints, including dairy or wheat if you are allergic.  Most of the back pain that you are experiencing is due to your selection of exercises, especially the sit-ups.

If you like more specific recommendations I will need more details and blood work.

Thank You,

Dr. Serrano

What Our Customers Are Saying
Beef Pemmican
I am not on facebook, but wanted to let you know our experience with
pemmican.  I bought some last year for camping, along with your jerky.  We love  the jerky, but the texture of the pemmican and the richness was a bit too much for us.  This year we got more jerky and still had some  pemmican in the freezer.  I had an idea to spread the pemmican on the jerky, so we'd get fat along with the meat.  Wow!  It was great!!   

Usually, we need/want to eat lots of jerky to feel full, but with the pemmican we were quite satisfied with less.  And I was happy in  knowing that we also got the benefits of the fat.  So now we have lots of leftover jerky!  LOL. This works out great for our camping and backpacking lunches.

Thanks for your wonderful products.
