Logan Jordan English 102 Dr. Christina Bucher 3-22-2011 Identifying Beef: An Evaluation of a Website In Michael Pollan’s book, “The Omnivore’s Dilemma,” he raises many issues concerned with farms, both organic and industrial, and their effects on the environment, the treatment and safety of animals, and which farms are better for animals. Although it is not directly affiliated with Michael Pollan, www.explorebeef.org can provide information about all of these in respects to cattle. With easy-to-click tabs at the top of the website’s page, it is easy to navigate through the website to find information on each of these farm related issues. Each tab contains a decent amount of accurate information on cattle ranching and how new farms play a role in the issues in which Michael Pollan discusses. The creators and writers of the website are the members of the Cattlemen’s Beef Board and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. The cattlemen’s beef board is an extremely credible group given the fact that each member is elected by the Secretary of Agriculture. The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, while not as prestigious, is still a credible group give the fact that each member is a beef advocate. They are people who care for, and have knowledge of beef products, and should be considered, as a whole, credible, especially when writing a website dedicated to beef. Although this information is accurate, and recent, it only displays the finer parts of cattle ranching. The website does not show the CAFOs in which Pollan writes about, but only the free-range ranches, which most people would consider organic.
