GRASS FINISHED BEEF

WHY REGENERATIVE AND GRASS FINISHED?

Regenerative agriculture goes beyond “organic” and places a strong emphasis on rebuilding local ecosystems. This is accomplished by building organic material in the soil and increasing plant diversity so that the microbial world, which powers soil health, can flourish.  


Grass finished is the natural cycle of a bovine, they were not created to eat GMO corn and grains.  Healthier for you, for the animal, and a way to bring soils back to life, naturally!!


 

Research has shown that finishing cattle on a grass fed diet

has many significant health benefits for consumers

compared to grain fed beef.


Some of the health benefits of grass fed beef include:

 

  • Two to three times more conjugated linoleic acid: a healthy fat that's been tied to improved immunity and anti-inflammation

 

  • Higher concentration of omega-3 fatty acids: essential fatty acids that have been associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, cognitive decline, and other conditions.

 

  • More desirable omega-6 to omega-3 ratio: Health professionals suggest that a healthy diet consists of 1 to 4 times more omega-6 fatty acids than omega-3 fatty acids. While essential for normal body function, excess amounts of omega-6 can cause inflammation in the body.

 

  • Studies have shown that grass fed beef repeatedly falls within the healthy 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids. Grain fed beef is typically around 16:1 or as high as 40:1.
