Grass-Fed Health Aspects

Increasingly, people are thinking about what they are eating and how it is produced.  For beef cattle, grass is the most natural feed available.  Our Grass-Fed Beef comes from cattle that roam their entire lives on open pastureland in California and Missouri, eating only a diet of fresh grasses and plants.

Ranches

Ranchers who raise these cattle take great care to manage their land and make a full commitment to sustainable farming practices.  Pasture rotation programs allow for a 30-45 day rest period between grazing.  This traditional method of grazing mimics how buffalo grazed in North America for centuries.

The Animals

Our animals are treated humanely, raised in low-stress environments and never subjected to hormones, steroids, or antibiotics for any reason.  Our beef cattle are never fed animal by-products or grain-based feeds and graze on pastures that have been free of synthetic fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides for a minimum of three years.

Omega-3

Richer in omega-3 fatty acids (the healthy fat found in salmon) that results in a more favorable omega-6 to omega-3 ratio.  A healthy diet should consist of roughly one to four times more omega-6 fatty acids than omega-3 fatty acids.  The typical American diet tends to contain 11 to 30 times more omega-6 fatty acids than omega-3, a statistic that has been considered as a significant factor in the rise of inflammatory disorders in the United States.  Research shows that Grass-Fed beef has a significantly lower ratio than grain-fed beef.

 

CLA

Grass-Fed beef is also an excellent source of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid).  CLA is a naturally occurring fat that is commonly found in beef, lamb and dairy products and has been shown to potentially fight cancer, reduce inflammation, and improving body consumption.

 

Vitamin A

Higher in Vitamin A Grass-Fed beef supplies two times the beta-carotene of grain-fed beef.  A typical 3oz. serving would provide 10% of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for Vitamin A for women as compared to 5% supplied by grain-fed been (National Institute of Health Clinical Center, 2002).  When it comes to nutrition, Grass-Fed beef truly is a completely different animal.
