The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) uses grades, such as select, choice, and prime, as a function of color, weight, fat-to-body ratio, age and other physical considerations. Grading, is a voluntary process paid for by the packer or processor. Non-graded or no-roled meat is not necessarily an inferior product. The processor or packer has simply opted to save money by forgoing the process.
