Officers of the county association are given on this page. Thai the beef industry is an important one in Kossuth county is attested to by statistics supplied through the office of Dean Barnes, county extension director. In the last farm census year (1954) a total of 22,772 head of grain-fed cattle were marketed from Kossuih — bringing £5,125,000 to the county farm economy in that year. A ireak-down of the beef cattle raised in the same year showed that 12,780 feeder calves, including Western cattle, was brought in for county feed lots. 9,992 native beef calves were raised on Kossuth pas- ures and feed lots in that twelve-month period, while at the same ime there were 11,102 beef cows (for calving) on Kossulh county arms. It is estimated that present cattle numbers are equal to or n excess of those figures. Herefords, Angus and Shorthorns are the principal breeds raised n the county, with a larger number of pure-bred breeders function- ng to increase the quality of beef.

The dry heat methods inclu de roasting, broiling and pan-broiling. The moist heat methods include braising and cooking in liquid. However, when cooking any cut of meat by any of these methods, there's one prime rule to follow ... use a LOW TEMPERATURE. Why? Because by using a low temperature you actually have more meal to serve .. . there is less meal shrinkage. In addition, meat cooked at a low temperature, as compared with high temperature, is more uniformly done. It is also easier to carve. When roasting beef, use a 300 degree oven. When broiling, have top of meat two or three inches from heat, t he thicker the farther away from the heat. When cooking meat in liquid, always keep it at a simm erpoint. If you follow these rules, you'll always have nice juicy, flavorful steaks and beef roasts. Country-Fried Old-Fashioned Steak-Good! Draw up a chair and have some good old-fashioned food! . This means it is a country-fried steak time. Here's how to prepare it with either chuck or round steak, cut about one-half inch thick. First, divide the steak into indi- vjd,ual 'servings and dredge the meat with seasoned flour . . . this will help give the steak that attractive golden brown appearance. Next,,iirown the steak in, a frying-pan with a small amount of lard or drippings. When thoroughly browned on both sides, cover the meat and let it cook slowly for about firty-five minutes. At the end of this time, remove the meat and make a cream gravy with the drippings ... allowing two tablespoons each of drippings and flour for each cup of milk. When slightly thickened, place the steak back in the pan, cover and cook for twenty minutes longer. This gives you tender beef steak to serve in rich cream gravy. The smallest county in the U.

The care of meat between .the time it is purchased and cook•ed is quite important. Here are a few points to follow for correct care of uncooked meats. First, just as soon as possible, remove the heavy store wrappings from fresh meat. To keep at its best, the surface needs to dry out a little. For this reason, uncooked meat is left uncovered or topped lightly with a sheet of waxed paper before it is placed in a cold section of your refrigerator. Cooked meat is stored entirely differently. Meats dry out during cooking and, naturally, additional We Join In Saluting The $5,000,000 Kossuth County Beef Industry KOSSUTH BEEF 1$ "BEST BfEF" BURT Co-Operative Elevator Co, Burt, Iowa drying is not desirable. Therefore, cooked meat should be tightly wrapped before being stored in the refrigerator. Closely wrapped with waxed paper or placed in a refrigerator jar with a tight-fitting cover, the meat will remain juicy and ready for its repeat appearance on your table.
