We originally only started raising our own beef because we wanted to begin to feed our own family more healthier food options. There are many health benefits from eating grass fed beef instead of the ‘feedlot’ beef we had been buying from the supermarkets.
Research suggests that many of the health problems associated with eating beef are really problems with corn or grain fed beef. Beef that is raised on a diet of corn or grain maybe more eye appealing and more ‘marbled’ but it has the highest amount of inter-muscular fat, the worst type of fat for you to consume plus is loaded with hormones and antibiotics.
From a nutritional standpoint, grass-fed beef is so completely different than grain-fed beef that you might think the meat came from two different types of animals. 100% grass fed beef contains no hormones or antibiotics and is so good for you that it is actually considered a "health food".
Grass-fed beef is an excellent source of Vitamin A (10 times more than grain fed), and is higher in Vitamin E , B vitamins, calcium, magnesium and potassium.
Finally, when it comes to health and safety from food borne illnesses, grass fed beef is the clear winner. Grass-fed beef is safe from Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), commonly known as Mad Cow Disease.
There is much research out there on the health benefits of Grass fed beef. Our friends at www.eatwild.com and www.onlygrassfed.com are some additional resources for more information.
