It’s really quite simple. In terms of health, grass fed beef is far more healthier in terms of Omega-3 content and lower fat content than grain or corn fed beef. Yes, it’s going to cost you more, but that’s up to you as the consumer.
Across the U.S. farmers are turning back to a traditional method of cattle raising: feeding cows on grassy pastures instead of troughs filled with corn. A decade ago, there were only about 50 grass-fed-cattle operations left in the United States. Now, there are thousands and the numbers are growing.
NPR did a wonderful story on the main differences between the two types of beef and posted a great video to go along with it. Feel free to check it out here.
