The secret is to get them fat before they gain the extra frame. I have never tried it but have seen it done with Holsteins.http://www.admani.com/Dairy%20Beef/Dairy%20Beef%20Index.htm When I was familiar with this pellet it was a Moormans product that has evidently been bought out by ADM.

At what age do you slaughter for maximum quality? And most importantly, what are the actual flavor/texture differences between a jersey and say an angus? If a person is used to traditional grain finished beef of choice or better grade, can this be achieved with a jersey?
