Why Grass Fed Beef

Did you know that if you consume the U.S. average of 66.5 pounds of beef in a year, you are consuming 16,642 fewer calories with grass-fed beef? Did you know that grass-fed beef contains 4 to 5 times more CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) which fights cancer and reduces the risk of obesity, diabetes, and numerous immune disorders, than grain-fed beef?

 

Compared to grain-fed beef, grass-fed beef contains:

  • 4 to 6 times less fat
  • 2 to 6 times the amount of healthy omega-3 fats
  • smaller amounts of omega-6 fats
  • fat content about the same as skinless chicken or wild game
