Why Grass Fed, Pasture Raised Beef?

Healthy   

authoritynutrition.com/grass-fed-vs-grain-fed-beef/

  • No need for added hormones.

  • Antibiotic free.

  • Rotational pasture raised cows, eating grasses their entire life.

  • Humanely raised farm animals not crowded into unsanitary feedlots.

  • Saturated and monounsaturated: Grass-fed beef has either similar, or slightly less, saturated and monounsaturated fats.

  • Omega-6 Polyunsaturated Fats: Grass-fed and grain-fed beef contain very similar amounts of Omega-6 fatty acids.

  • Omega-3s: This is where grass-fed really makes a major difference, containing up to 5 times as much Omega-3.

  • Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA): Grass-fed beef contains about 2 times as much CLA as grain-fed beef. This fatty acid is associated with reduced body fat and some other beneficial effects.

  • Vitamin B12, B3 and B6. It is also very rich in highly bioavailable Iron, Selenium and Zinc.

  • Vitamin A: Grass-fed beef contains carotenoid precursors to Vitamin A, such as beta-carotene.

  • Vitamin E: Grass-fed beef contains more Vitamin E than grain fed beef, which is an antioxidant that sits in your cell membranes and protects them from oxidation.

  • Micronutrients: Grass-fed beef also contains more Potassium, Iron, Zinc, Phosphorus and Sodium.

  • Grass fed beef contains some amount of almost every nutrient that humans need to survive.

  • Grass fed beef also contains high quality protein and various lesser known nutrients like Creatine and Carnosine, which are very important for our muscles and brains.

  • Lean, less fat and lower calories gram for gram vs feedlot grain fed beef.

  • Great natural “beefy, dark meat, earthy and grassy taste”.

  • Tastes like beef not fat!”


All of our farm partners are part of the Eat Wild community.

www.eatwild.com

Eatwild.com provides research-based information about "eating on the wild side." This means choosing present-day foods that approach the nutritional content of wild plants and game—our original diet. Evidence is growing on an almost daily basis that these wholesome foods give us more of the nutrients we need to fight disease and enjoy optimum health.

Few of us will go back to foraging in the wild for our food, but we can learn to forage in our supermarkets, farmers markets, and from local farmers to select the most nutritious and delicious foods available.

Eatwild has been providing information about the benefits of choosing meat, eggs, and dairy products from pastured animals since 2001. This year, founder Jo Robinson is providing new information about fruits and vegetables as well!

Criteria/Production Standards for Listing on Eatwild

  • We raise our animals in a low-stress, natural environment and treat them humanely from birth to market. 

  • When high-quality pasture is not available, we feed our ruminant animals (cattle, goats, sheep, bison, deer, elk, antelope, etc.) stored grasses, which can include hay, haylage, and grass silage. We do not feed them grain, soy, corn silage, or concentrate. 

  • We raise our dairy animals on pasture with little or no grain or concentrate. 

  • We raise our poultry outdoors on good-quality pasture as soon as they are old enough to withstand outdoor conditions. They may be confined in coops overnight to protect them from predators or when weather conditions would be injurious to the birds, but are on quality pasture for at least six hours a day, whether in moveable pens, open fields, or areas fenced off with electric netting or other fences that are moved frequently to maintain a fresh supply of greens. (Note: Having “access to the outdoors” is not enough. The birds must be getting a significant amount of their nourishment from growing plants.) They may receive grains and seeds because, unlike ruminants, they cannot get all the nutrients they need from grass.

  • We raise our pigs or rabbits outdoors on good pasture. (As is true for poultry, they can be given supplemental grain, nuts, seeds, fruits, and other nutritious foods in addition to grasses.)

  • We do not treat our animals with hormones. 

  • We do not treat our animals with routine, low-level antibiotics. Those animals that we do treat with antibiotics due to health problems or injury are removed from the program.

  • We do not confine our animals indoors or in areas without pasture except to protect their welfare during brief periods such as prior to and during birthing, or during extreme weather conditions. They may also be confined for brief periods to prevent "pugging" of the soil during wet weather. Poultry and other small animals may be confined at night to protect them from predators. 

  • We protect our streams and other natural water sources from harmful animal impact. 

  • We manage our animals' grazing to enhance the growth of the pasture, the health of the land, and the nutritional value of our products. To do this, we take into account the specific soil conditions, vegetation, altitude, growing season, and temperature range of our climate.

  • Organic certification is desirable, but not essential. 

Eatwild reserves the right to remove a supplier from the website if there is reason to believe that the supplier does not meet these criteria, or if for any reason inclusion of the supplier might reflect negatively on Eatwild.
