Sampling steaks...tough job!

Great discussion so far. I appreciate everyone's insights.

I enjoy the gallery, too! Love those baby calves!

Awesome suggestions and good reminders. Thanks to all of you for weighing in!

I love it when great customer service comes with a great mail! Thanks for the suggestion!

Wednesday, March 27, 2013 - 20:17

Sounds great, John! Adding this one to my list!

I totally agree, Gary! One of my favorite steak experiences was at a Ruth's Chris Steak House in Washington, D.C. It wasn't the steak that made it special though -- although it was pretty darn...

My husband's family is from MN, and we usually make it up to the MN State Fair each year. I'm going to have to keep this one in mind for this year! Thanks for the tip!

I love the step-by-steps here, Keith. I don't usually age my steaks (usually too impatient to eat them! ha!). I've heard that really adds to the flavor.

What a great compliment to your wife! There's something about grilling your own piece of beef that's sure hard to beat!

I've never been to Atlanta, but if I ever get there, you can bet I'm going to try it!

Thanks everyone for the great discussion today. I really appreciate the give and take!

That's great that the raffle idea worked so well for your daughter! Congratulations! And, I agree that it would be a waste to see a cow in a sanctuary vs. helping hungry families!

Rebecca, as beef producers, we know that an animal is dying to produce the steaks, hamburgers and beef by-products to nourish the world. Cattle provide everything from burgers, to marshmallows, to...

Did you click on the link? The blog I referred to in my post had the actual photo of the Lettuce Ladies that this boy received in the mail. These women were not wearing beach bikinis; they were...

This is spot-on. They are no longer fighting for animal welfare; they want animal rights -- as in animals have the same rights as people.

I totally agree! I sure don't listen to Carrie Underwood. Check out my past blog posts on the topic:

Okay, that's probably true. But, as a parent, would you appreciate PETA sending X-rated photos to your child?

Wednesday, March 27, 2013 - 17:32

Thank you for tuning in. I'm always looking for blog suggestions; this one was brought to my attention by a reader. So feel free to send tips my way!

Well, of course they wouldn't do that for fear that they would actually win the cow and have to find a way to euthanize it right away. They just love to stir the pot.

Thanks for the suggestion! I love a tender steak!

Hi Laurie! I hope lambing/calving goes smoothly even though it's a crazy time! I will have to check out that Unstoppable Moms segment..pretty cool!

Hope to see you at the Auxiliary meeting...

Sounds like you need a good night's sleep, that or another double mocha!

Thursday, March 21, 2013 - 13:41

I just read this recipe to my husband; he's requesting it for dinner tonight!

You're probably right, Emma. This post was meant to be tongue-in-cheek though. I do feel like women in ag are worth celebrating and have great stories to tell!

Thursday, March 21, 2013 - 12:51

Thanks, Katlyn! I'm hoping a lot of people share this post in the first step toward telling the story of women in agriculture.

Thursday, March 21, 2013 - 12:50

It is reassuring to know we aren't in this alone! I love the responses on this post so far! Thank you!

Thursday, March 21, 2013 - 12:49

Haha! I like the visual, but glad your mom is taking care of you!

Thursday, March 21, 2013 - 12:48

Yes indeed. I think in this world where there is a reality show spin-off at every turn, most of us know it's not the life it's cracked up to be.

Thursday, March 21, 2013 - 12:47

We don't have a Home Depot or a Costco around here, but I'll try Menards or Walmart and see what I can find. Thank you!
