    Great article!!! I was able to enjoy my BBQ steak sandwich tonight knowing it was better for me than BBQ tofu.

    Since I'm in the scientific world I like to put the numbers in perspective. A nano gram is 1×10-9 or one billionth of a gram.

    For beef that would be .0000000032 grams

    3.5 oz soy protein is .0000102000 grams

    That is a huge difference. I will stick with beef.

    When Perry comes to visit, he and I can chow down on a nice BBQ steak.

    Susan, thanks for the info. I'm a little confused regarding your use of the word nanograms. As far as I know, that is a measurement. Do you mean to refer to nanograms of estrogen each time you use it or am I missing something?

    Hi Susan,

    I was so glad to stumble on your blog post from last summer. I am glad that you had a good trip to learn about beef. I am a beef farmer from Nebraska, and am excited to hear that you had a good experience on the farm.

    This is a very well written blog post and I thank you for sharing the information. Beef farmers (like me) have been historically slow talking to our customers and striving for transparency on our farms, but over the last few years I have realized just how important that really is. I entered the world of "social media" about 18 months ago with the launching of my blog "Feed Yard Foodie", and I have learned so much during that time as I interact with readers that are curious about how I raise cattle and grow beef.

    Thank you so much for your willingness to engage in a conversation and learn about how beef is raised in the United States. You are always most welcome on my farm if you ever head across Interstate 80 through Nebraska.

    All the best,
    Anne Burkholder

    Thank you Anne for your kind words – always appreciate hearing from farmer's and am so happy to hear about you. I took a look at your site and it is wonderful! Please keep in touch.

    Susan, thank you for posting this! As a registered dietitian who grew up in Nebraska farmland, it’s unfortunate how much mis-information is out there. What a great opportunity for you to get some questions answered and share your new information!
