 GRASS FED BEEF OVERVIEW

Grass fed beef simply means that the cattle are allowed to forage and graze for their own fresh food.

They may be given close substitutes like alfalfa during the winter. But unlike grain-fed animals, the emphasis is  on providing the closest thing to a natural diet as possible.
 
Grains are higher in calories, and encourage the cows to grow much faster and cheaper. Grass is much higher in key nutrients like Omega-3s and B vitamins. This results in steak that are leaner, healthier, and are much more flavorful. This is why grass-fed meats are highly recommended by the Paleo Diet.

 ORGANIC LIFESTYLE BEEF OVERVIEW

The organic label doesn’t so much describe how the cattle are raised as defining how they can’t be raised.
Cows cannot be confined in a feedlot for any extended period of time. Besides they cannot be over-crowded or kept in unsanitary conditions. Also, they cannot be directly or indirectly exposed to artificial pesticides, fertilizers, antibiotics, hormones, GMOs, or other synthetic contaminants.

The question still remains Organic or Grass Fed Beef? Most consumers feel they are the same or close. Are they thinking anything is healthier than conventional methods such as a feedlot. Is that all that matters? What is the difference?

THE DIFFERENCE ? | Organic Lifestyle Beef | Grass Fed Beef?

Uniquely Organic Lifestyle Beef and Grass Fed both produce meat and dairy products that are superior to anything else. Certainly better than the feedlot vision that most folks eat everyday.
 
There are differences. If labeled as grass fed it means that they are fed exclusively grass, hay and forage. Absolutely no grain at all. The grass or hay may contain pesticides and the cows could have antibiotics or hormones. For these reasons Grass-fed does not mean or qualify for organic or organic certification.
 
On the other hand Organic cows are fed organic feed that may include grain (organic). There are many farms that will keep the cows on grass  most of the year. If weather requires shelter or grass is not accessible it then requires supplemental organic feed.
 
The Organic Certification requires easy outside access for the cows which has to be documented. Organic cows cannot be given antibiotics or growth-enhancing hormones, pesticides. No fertilizers have been used on the farm land within the last three years.

Comparison to conventional cows

There are nearly 100 million cows in the US. Nearly all of them are kept in confined areas (feedlots). They’re fed a grain diet selected for price rather than nutrition.
 
The close proximity increases the sickness for every cow. This causes most farmers to treat antibiotics routinely. Dangerous hormones are used to increase growth and milk production. The results are a cheaper price at the market. Consequently, it compromises the health of those who choose this product.
 
 
The antibiotics and hormones can be traced and found in every sip of milk or every bite of beef. A trail of future issues. Although this is the norm, it is far from the best.

SUMMARY

We get to make our choices daily for our health. Conventional beef and meat have been a well studied factor in countless health concerns. Nearly all have involved catastrophic diseases.
 

Many are beginning to consider new choices in how they look at their meat consumption. That is an individual choice like any other. I know one choice for sure, the cows would vote NO FEED LOTS. I have never seen a cow dancing in a feedlot.

Make your choices carefully. Education is the key. Have a Healthy Day.

    This is a great article for people who are really concerned about their diet and are looking for healthier sources of food. I feel that most people don’t care where their meat come from, and don’t understand the significance of it.

    I always do my shopping for groceries at the supermarket. Do you think there’s any chance of organic beef being sold there? Or do I need to go to some specialized food store?

    Great article!

      Greetings and thanks for sharing you comment. Unfortunately most of us do not develop a healthy concern for our food and develop a approach food purely for our comfort rather than our long term health. In the states Organic beef or grass feed beef is available in even small communities. It is available individually from online from both ranches & farms directly or other sources. If you mean Health Stores, as specialized stores you will generally have a wider selection and someone with a better health connection depending or you needs.

      Have a Healthy Hangout Day!

    I am on a healthy diet and I love to eat meat. I have always wondered this before I do my grocery shopping and you have laid it out very clearly. I’m going to go organic after reading this.The only improvement I see is maybe adding your own opinion to the article? Good job.

    • Robert ClackRobert Clack

      Hi Kalia, Many thanks for your comment which I might add is your opinion and am glad that you are able to do that. I am glad to hear that you are considering a Life choice by selection organic over conventional foods, you body will thank you. I would encourage everyone to view Documentaries on the production of meats of all kind and just how the meat and the animals themselves go through the process.

      Wishing you the best on your organic selections and hope this site provides a resource and would be honored to help in any way.
