Reasons to Go Grass Fed

Organic beef

Omega-3s are typically thought to come from salmon, however, grass-fed beef is also an excellent source that provides two to six times more Omega-3s as well as a superior anti-inflammatory ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 fats compared to grain-fed beef. Grass-fed beef also has two to three times more CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), a type of naturally occurring fatty acid that may protect against heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

Grass-fed beef has healthy fats

“You are what you eat” applies to cows too! Lean meat, such as grass-fed beef, contains less fat than grain-fed beef. Gram for gram, grass-fed beef contains fewer calories, than grain-fed beef – all of which are linked to health benefits.

More vitamins

Fresh grass is more concentrated in vitamins than grain or hay; therefore, cows eating fresh grass are better nourished. The lean meat from Belted Galloway cattle is known to have seven times more beta-carotene and twice the Vitamin E than grain-fed!

Grain finished to perfection

Cows at 3GC are fed a vegetarian diet of grass and are grain-finished on their days leading up to processing. Until then, they spend their entire lives eating grasses and forage in pastures. By finishing cows with a grain diet, cattle get that “A+ steakhouse taste” and rich flavor that consumers love.

Grass-fed beef is easier to digest

Antibiotic residues in conventional beef can upset a person’s healthy bacteria levels. For people with food sensitivities to corn or soy, eating grain-fed beef can cause flare-up symptoms like bloating, heartburn and other digestive troubles.
