why grass fed?
Generally, grass fed beef is considered to be a healthier option than grain-fed beef. Pound for pound, it has less total fat, and therefore less calories. Grass fed beef has 500 percent more of the essential fatty acid Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) than grain-finished beef. In addition to being packed with B vitamins, grass fed beef has been found to be higher in vitamins A, E, and other antioxidants compared to grain fed beef.
Helping the land and the environment
When properly managed, raising cows in pasture can be a benefit to the environment. On pasture, grazing beef does its own fertilizing and harvesting. Grazed pasture removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere more effectively, including forestland and ungrazed prairie, helping to slow global warming.
On well-managed pasture-based ranches, the cows spread their manure evenly over the soil where it becomes a natural source of organic fertilizer. The manure improves the quality of the grass, which increases the rate of gain of the cows. It’s a closed, sustainable system.
