Grass Fed Beef – Cows were meant to roam pastures and eat grass, NOT grain. In changing the cow’s diet to cheap grains, its meat has become far less healthy. Grain feeding cows would ultimately kill them by acidosis, if they were not first slaughtered. On the other hand, grass fed beef has 60% more Omega-3fatty acids, and the ideal ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 which is most important in disease prevention. Grass fed beef is high in iron, Vitamin B12, monounsaturated fat, and zinc.
