Results of the Florida Miniature Zebu Association Zebu Steer Project
The Florida Miniature Zebu Association (FMZA) recently conducted a nutritional Zebu steer project. The steers, donated by the JW Fewox family of Frostproof, FL, were approximately 4 years old. These animals had been strictly grass fed until Aug 25, 2007, when they were moved to Ann Harper's farm in Lady Lake, FL. There for seven (7) weeks they were fed grass and grain, and on Oct 18 they were taken to be slaughtered. The hanging weights were 258 and 192 pounds. Test samples of the Zebu meat were taken to ABC Research Corporation in Gainesville, FL for Nutritional testing.
Here are the results of those test compared to select and choice beef:
