Consumers are routinely head-faked when it comes to beef. Almost all cattle (nearly 100%) spend some time on grass. But if cattle are also fed corn, a vegetarian diet of grains, or worst of all, animal by-products, then such cattle should not be labeled grass-fed. If cattle are not finished on grass, most of the health benefits from grass-fed beef, such as conjugated linoleic acids (CLA), are totally destroyed. It is often possible to find grass-fed beef for your family at local farms and farmers’ markets. I am constantly searching for mail-order family farms with control of their processing. One such group I can recommend is American Grass Fed Beef.
