Benefits of grass fed beef
Better for your body
Another benefit of grass fed beef is something called conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA. Ruminants that are raised on grass have three to five times more CLA than animals that are raised on grain. Studies have shown that CLA has antioxidant properties, and has even been known to prevent some forms of cancer. This powerful information is just another reason to introduce grass fed beef into everyday diets.
Grass fed beef also has higher levels of beta carotene and vitamin E.
Better for cattle
Our cattle have the opportunity to eat exactly what thier rumens were created to eat – grass! They are moved daily to provide them with fresh pasture and a clean place to sleep. Two things thier conventional partners never get to experience.
Better for the land
Studies have also shown that pastured animals can help reduce soil erosion and even reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. While grass-fed cattle produce more methane than grain fed cattle, pastures and paddocks create a phenomenon called “carbon sequestration” which offsets the amount of methane released by cows in the fields. Pastured cows also release less ammonia in their waste, which further protects the atmosphere.
