    Ground Beef and other meats

    Post  furryfriends50 on Sun Jul 05, 2009 6:22 pm

    Okay, I know i should know this, but is there any bones in ground beef? I just got some for very cheap ground beef, since it is after the fourth of july there was some very good sales on meat. I got only about a weeks worth of beef (which is actually 15 pounds because i have 20 cats that will eat raw). They also get some wet food everyday along with a few bites of dry, and are eating much less with it being so hot out.

    Should i add some chicken bones into the ground beef to cover the bones, or is there some bones ground into that probably? I also finally found a place that sells chicken livers, heart, kidneys, and gizzards all in seperate packs for very cheap. I added that into the baggies with the meat in it to, so it is about 10% of the total they get every day. They also have beef hearts and livers, so i might get them next time.

    Also got 3 whole chickens for $0.69 a pound and 2 turkey breasts for $0.80 a pound (both of which i thought was very cheap). Must be since it is just after the fourth of july?

    There are no bones in ground beef.

    Also, keep in mind only the kidney and liver is organ.. not the gizzard and heart.

    I think human ground beef has no bone. You should try and source out ribs (chicken)! Those are awesome. Or ground bone, if you can find it (picky eaters).

    You're giving a nice variety, but as Heather said, remember that heart/gizzards are muscle not organ! Very Happy
