I know for a fact that older beef has the best flavor.

Interesting, I sell mature cows in good shape to my daughter for burger cows for their shop. I usually buy the loins back for steak. Just finished one of the best Rib eye I have ever ate. Works good for me as I get steak without all the rest of the cuts. We also keep the briskets for smoking they get great burger which their customers are noticing how good they are.

Haven't had any 22 yr olds though.

One of my favorite animals to put in the freezer is about a 5 - 6 year old cow. If she does not have a calf in the Spring, she stays on grass all summer and goes down in the fall.

Best to all.

Nuthin better than a 8 - 10 year old Jersey cow.

A year or so back, a friend and i were lucky enough to have a neighbor rancher give us and old cow. We put it down, and butchered it. Turned everything to hamburger. Had all 225 lbs flash froze in 2 lb packages. Gave it all to family members and it ended up in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.and Montana. All recipients were glad to get free burger, and ALL commented on the good beef they got. Old beef is GOOD :D :D :D :cowboy:

Corriente roping steers on grass or fed up are tasty too. Of course, they used to be about 4 years old before they got to the USA. Tails were long, feet were big, horns were big, now, not as old when they get here.

I kill a old cow if she in good shape and grinder our selves. Gave one to the Church a few years ago , one guy showed up on Saturday to kill her. mentioned it the next day. The cow hung for a week the next Saturday we cut her up I doubled ground and we bagged the hamburger in to ziplock freezer bags , delivered it to 17 families and cleaned up in under 4 hours. Usually we finish out a open heifer on grass seed. Pulse we fishing a few lambs and take care of them ourselves.
