Cattle Farm Feeding Their Cows BEER: Texas farmers swear by a secret ingredient that makes Beef Juicer
- Beer is added to the hay to help the cows digest it
- The secret ingredient gives the beef an unmistakable taste
A Texas cattle ranch has revealed the key ingredient behind their premium beef. The secret is none other than good old-fashioned beer.
Texas T Kobe Ranch in Wallis, Texas, adds beer to the hay their cows eat. The ranch claims that the yeast in the double IPA helps the cows’ digestive system and improves the flavor and texture of the beef.
Texas T Kobe Ranch says the beer gives their beef a distinct texture and flavor
The beer comes from a local brewery that is itself an award-winning company, the Saint Arnold Brewing Co.
Texas T follows the tradition of Kobe beef, a herding method developed in Japan that uses hormone-free Wagyu cattle.
It’s one of the most expensive types of beef and is often considered a delicacy — it can cost as much as $100 a pound.
Japanese ranchers often massaged their cows or fed them beer to achieve the ideal taste.
Ranch owner Gene Terry says his cattle prefer the beef-soaked hay to the regular variety.
