PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University is adding beef to its menu. The school is already known for Cougar cheese and Ferdinand's ice cream, but now the university is selling its own beef brand.
WSU Premium Beef, is harvested from local cattle that were raised by staff and animal science students. The Angus choice beef runs roughly $5 a pound. WSU's cattle operations say the price is comparable to what you'd pay in a high end restaurant. The Wagyu beef runs about $9 a pound and is known for being tender.
WSU Premium Beef is available to the public in whole, half and quarter sizes and in boxed cuts.
