There is no beef like Jersey beef. The hamburgers, the roasts, the steaks: all tender and delicious even when very lean. We (finally) put down one of our Jersey steers a couple weeks ago. With less help than in the past, it was a full day for me and Thomas. Then we butchered over the next two weeks. Hard work, but I think everyone thinks it was worth it.
I guess I am glad I am not Byzantine Rite. No meat or dairy during the great fast!
