KNOW BEEF CRADES AND
BUY DESIRED QUALVT
..Knokledge of Commercial Beef Grades
YWill Enable the Housekeeper ti
Determine Whether She is Get
- ting Quality of Meat Desired ani
When the retail meat dealer buy
from the -wholesaler, he does no
depend altogether on the wholesal
firm's honesty and good faith t
secure the gr'ade of meat he wants fo
his trade. Instead, keeping in min
certain points and characteristic
which determine grades of beef, th
retailer, before he buys and pays fo
it, decides for himself whether he ha
been given what he ordered.
The housekeeper should be quite a
familiar as the butcher with the vai
ious grades of beef. Few housekeet
ers, however, have this knowledge
Even those women who pride then
selves that "cotton mixed" is not so]
them for linen, buy beef, week afte
week, year after year, and depend a
together on their butcher's honest:
Not until it is cooked and served d
they know whether they have bee
given the "choice" meat they askc
and paid the price for, or only thi
of "medium" or "common' qualit:
Linen buying is only occasional, bi
meat buying is daily, and every wi
man should be familiar with the di
ferent grades of meat. Toward th
end the Bureau of Markets, United i
States Department of Agriculture, has
defined the four. grades of beef.
How Beef is Usually Graded.
The "choice" grade of beef denotes
the best quality usually found in the 1
markets. Only a limited aniount of
what is known as 'prime" beef is
offered in most markets. This grade 1
is usually offered in limited quanti
ties during the Christmas or holiday
seasons, and immediately following
live-stock shows. "Choice" beef has a
moderately even covering of fit on
the outer surfaces. This fat is smooth
in appearance and white in color, but
is not in excessive amounts. The col
or of the lean meat .is light red, wvith
traces of fat distributed through the
lean on all cuts, which are taken from
the loins, ribs, and some parts of the
round. Choice meat is firm to -the
touch and of fine grain. Theer must
be no watery appearance on the fresh
ly cut surfaces.
The "goo'" grade o. beef is next in
quality to "choice" and may differ
slightly in all points or correspond in
some points to "choice" and differ ma
terially in others. The covering of fat
is not so smooth and uniform, but
must be white in color and dry in ap
pearance. The color of the lean meat
in this grade also v ries slightly and
may be o a darker hue than the
"choice" grade, but it is not (lark.
"Good" beef is of smooth grain and
has traces of fat, which is white or
creamy in color, distributed through
Most Beef is "Medium."
The bulk of the beef offered for
sale in most markets is of "medium"
grade. In this there is usually very
little and Qften no covering of outside
fat excetp on the loin ind rib cuts.
.The fat is not evenly distributed. Dur
ing the summer and fall months "med
ium" grade beef has a watery appear
ance and the color of the lean meat
varies considerably, buc is usually
s dark, even when freshly cut. "Med
t iun" beef has a tendency to turn still
darker very quickly after being cut.
The grain is coarse and not uniform,
r and there are no traces of fat distri
.1 buted through the lean.
s The "common" grade is the lowest
e quality of beef offered for sale in a
r fresh condition to the trade. One of
s its prominent features is the high
percentage of bone in proportion to
s the mleat. There is only a slight
covering of outside fat on the rib and
loin cuts. "Common" beef has a flabby
appearance, is dark in color, and
- course in grain. A few traces of fat
d miny be diWerned, ,utf -usyl5y
r are of a yellow color and afiunevenly
