History of Beef Cattle

The domestication of cattle for food, dates back to 6500 B.C. in the Middle East. Cattle were not native to America but were brought to the New World on ships by European colonists. Americans were not big consumers of fresh beef until about 1870, due to the enormous growth of the cattle industry in the West. The introduction of cattle cars and refrigerated cars on the railroad facilitated the distribution of beef. From that point forward, beef became a commonly used staple in the American diet.
