back in the day and even today still we butcher a nice feeder calf for the deep freezer.
they make very good burgers. -- one if the things i find "interesting" is that you can fry a burger one day and put in the frig overnight and the next day is is just like it was just cooked. still tastes like a steak even.
grocery store hamburger though -- fry up a burger then put it in the frige overnight and it is hard and turns dark looking-- sort of like a hockey-puck.
damn sure something 'chemical" going on.
no telling what their putting in there--embalming fluid?
