Conventional Beef vs. Grass-Fed/Grass-Finished Beef

For a good explanation of the Grass-fed vs. Grain-fed Beef debate, please take the time to read this article: http://www.nrdc.org/living/eatingwell/top-10-reasons-eat-grass-fed-meat.asp

Why Grass-fed Beef?

  • Women who eat one 6 oz. serving of grass-fed beef a day are 60% less likely to develop breast cancer.
  • Switching to grass-fed beef will save you 17,773 calories (six pounds) a year.
  • High in Omega-3s: Grass-fed beef has 2-4 times the amount of Omega-3 as grain-fed beef. People with diets rich in Omega-3 are 50% less likely to have a heart attack. Omega-3 is shown to reduce the risk of cancer, depression, schizophrenia, attention deficit disorder (hyperactivity), and Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Low in Omega-6s: Grass-fed beef lowers pro-inflammatory Omega-6 fatty acids and raises Omega-3 fatty acids while grain-fed beef raises Omega-6 fatty acids and lowers Omega-3 fatty acids. Large amount of Omega-6 lead to obesity, diabetes, inflammatory diseases, and cancer. Most Americans consume large amounts of Omega-6.
  • High CLA levels Grass-fed beef is the richest known source of Conjugated Linoleic Acid or CLA. You would have to eat five times more grain-fed beef to have the same CLA levels. Anti-cancer properties have been linked to CLA and research suggests CLA supports a reduction in total body fat and an increase in lean body mass.
  • High in Vitamin E (There is 3 times the amount of Vitamin E in grass-fed beef as grain-fed beef) Vitamin E lowers risks of both heart disease and cancer.

 

We sell two different types of beef; hereford and longhorn. The longhorn comes from Chisholm Trail Beef. They are a family run, family operated business raising grass-fed, grass-finished beef in the Texas hill country. The hereford comes from CowHouse Creek Meat Company located in Hamilton Tx. The longhorn beef will be a little leaner at 95/5 than the hereford at 85/15.
