Ground bison? Yup!

Have you ever tried ground bison meat (also referred to as buffalo meat)? If not, you are truly missing out. Compared to beef, Angus Brands’ locally ground buffalo:

  • Has fewer calories
  • Is higher in protein
  • Is lower in sodium
  • Contains higher levels of B-12, B-6, iron, and zinc

Bison meat can be used in most recipes that call for beef and is one of the leanest, most nutritious meats available. You can use it for burgers, roasts, steaks and stew. Your customers will love this alternative. Because most meat bison are raised on open ranches and fed grass, the meat contains far fewer — if any — artificial antibiotics, hormones and steroids than beef and other more common meats. And since July is National Grilling Month – there’s no better time than now to try something new on your menu.
