State Meat Inspections are now available in 28 states. Standards for state inspections must be "equal to OR GREATER THAN" UDSA standards. This is good news for the consumer because it supports local farmers and businesses and provides a locally grown HIGHER QUALITY OF PRODUCT. Meat from Oakcreek Buffalo Ranch is inspected and packaged in a state plant. Much of the further processing of sausages for Oakcreek is also done under state meat inspection and proudly bears the label of the STATE OF MISSOURI.

DID YOU KNOW? That as much as 20% of meat sold in American supermarkets is imported from countries such as Mexico, Argentina, Canada, New Zealand, and Australia. While inspections in many of these countries are as good as that in the US, in some countries the inspections are woefully inadequate.

DID YOU KNOW? The UDSA now has a voluntary "country of origin" labeling program underway. We recommend you ASK for "country of origin" labeling at your supermarkets to support this program. It is expected to become mandatory in coming years.

DID YOU KNOW? That most fast food chains import much of the meat sold in their burgers. McDonalds has been a hold out, supporting American farmers to the tune of nearly a billion lbs of meat per year. Now that policy is crumbling as McDonalds announced this year it is testing imported meat in some of its southern restaurants. To their credit, they are promising to use only New Zealand and Australian beef where inspection standards are good. The reason they give for the policy change is that they need inexpensive, LEAN meat to mix with the high fat meat from American feedlots. This inexpensive, lean meat usually comes from culled older cows which are supposedly in short supply at this time. So it is a matter of healthier meat and lower dollars which are determining policy.
