Why is grass-fed beef better?
Better For You
Because grass is what cows are meant to eat, beef from grass-fed cattle is better than beef from grain-fed cattle in a number of ways.
Grass-fed beef is lower in calories, contains about twice as many omega-3 fatty acids as a typical grain-fed steak, has 10 times more vitamins A and three times more vitamin E, has higher levels of antioxidants, and up to seven times the beta-carotene.
Better for the Planet
Quite simply, less energy is put into growing grass than into growing grain. In fact, growing prairie grass has been shown to be one of the most effective ways of reducing our carbon footprint.
Better for Dinner
Plain and simple.
