Beef is an American favorite. Each of us spends about 15 percent of our disposable income on food, with about one-third of each food dollar going for meat, fish, and poultry—with beef the most popular choice. This four-page publication includes information on nutritional value, prices, choice of beef cuts, how much to buy, how to read meat labels, as well as how to cook and store beef.
