Benefits to Grass Fed Beef

Grass fed meat is often touted as the preferred option for health conscious people, but why? Grass Fed meat is often very lean and much lower in fat and calories. It contains higher levels of conjucated linoic acid (CLA), a beneficial fat that has been linked to improved immunity, healthy weight management. It also has anti inflammatory properties.

Grass fed beef also has some environmental benefits over its conventional counterpart. By not feeding (often genetically modified) corn and other grains the agricultural impact required to raise the animal is greatly reduced. Local beef reduces the carbon emissions needed to produce and transport cattle feed made of grain.  Pasture grazing improves farm land soil and contributes to local eco systems.
