Pre Grilling Season

The weather has been gorgeous this week! This means one thing….Grilling Season! Here at McLean Beef we are starting to prepare for our busiest time of the year. We are getting stocked up on steaks, ground beef and hamburger patties. The only downfall this grilling season is consumers will be paying a little more for their quality dry aged beef. Cattle prices have been going up which of course drives up the retail side of beef as well. We still think consumers will still be willing to pay the extra dollars to get a good piece of meat.

Other news for McLean Beef, we will be putting up 2 news signs 1/2 mile north and south from the store. We feel this will draw more traffic from Highway 81 to our store. It’s always great to meet new customers and find out where they are from or where they are traveling to.

That’s what’s new for now. Oh don’t forget to stop by the store and try some of our new Jalapeno Ground Beef! It’s great for hamburgers, meatloaf, tacos and more.

Hope you can stop by and see us!

Spring is around the corner!!!

As we have had a short and mild winter, we have to be thankful that we were able to keep our insanity at McLean Farm.  Having a mild winter this year has given us time to catch up on jobs that have been needed to be done.  

As planting season is quickly approaching, I have been become more anxious to get outside and move some dirt!  This month, I will be getting out farm equipment and spending some time in the shop. My planter will be the biggest job for me this month because it was in need for major repairs.  I have decided to add a couple of attachments to my planter to improve efficiency.  Hopefully if all goes well I could possibly get out in the fields and do some strip-till/fertilizing before planting.  Lastly, I have traded my old tractor (Buhler Versatile 2145)  in for a newer one (NewHolland T8020).  This new tractor will provide more power, and more fuel efficiency than my old one.  

As for me and my family, Amanda and I have been really busy with our 6 month old daughter, Bentley.  Bentley has given Amanda and I great joy in our life.  We thank God everyday for her.  Amanda has been busy with work and caring for Bentley.  It seems like nights go so fast after work.  Words in our household are; “How was your day?” “Can you feed Bentley?” “Can you change Bentley’s diaper?” “Do the dishes.” ” Do the laundry.” etc. oh. and “Good Night”.  It’s funny how a child changes your life.  For the better of course.
