Dissecting a Beef Heart

Being a farm family has certain advantages. We recently took a closer look at a beef heart. It was rather interesting, but it was hard to learn much about it. This was a beef heart with the blood vessels removed, so we really only got a good look at the heart muscle itself, and the chambers in the heart. The disadvantage to being a farm family is at one point during the dissection someone asked, "Is this Buddy?" Sadly, it was.
