|Another thing to remember is that with all beef today, a law exists that if a beef
is deemed by the state inspector to be 30 months or older, then the back bone
must be removed. This means no T-bones, Rib roasts ect.. Even if the animal is
29 months old, if the inspector says it's 30 months, he will stamp it as such and
the butcher has no choice but to process accordingly. The rule is to protect you
the consumer. All you need to do is to make your cutting order with a simple
adjustment by adding KC Strips, Fillets and loin roasts. You will still be well
satisfied with the flavor and tenderness without the bone.
