  • Only high-quality Angus cattle are eligible to ensure superior consistency

    • Commodity USDA Prime can include any breed, which allows for variability in overall taste and appearance
  • Sourced solely from “A” maturity cattle

    • USDA Prime has no maturity requirement, which can result in lack of tenderness

More selective than USDA Prime

Certified Angus Beef ® brand Prime goes beyond USDA Prime-grade marbling by applying nine additional standards that other Angus beef doesn’t have to meet.
