Anyone who buys, cooks or eats beef will be curious about where the food is coming from. Grass fed beef may be healthier than other meat you might go for. Many people see grass-fed cattle as a sound option based on how they are treated.
When it comes to the concept of grass-fed beef, there are many misconceptions that people have. Here are some important facts you should know when buying grass-fed beef.
For starters, you have to acknowledge that all cows eat grass. The difference comes in when the cattle are transferred from eating in the pasture to the feedlots. Acknowledge the fact that grass-fed cattle are not similar to grass finished ones. Beef that has been entirely grass fed is also known as grass-finished beef.
Grass fed beef will guarantee you tenderness, delicious aromas, and full-bodied flavors. This is the best option when making tenderizers, marinates and sauces. To add on this, it gives healthy and high-quality essential oils and proteins. Go ahead to get a 10 lb “Just a Bite” sample from potential distributors. This will give you a glimpse of how the beef tastes. If you will like it, you can then proceed to the 160 lb “The Whole Clan” Pack. The distributor of your choice should have all the necessary documentation as this will guarantee you to receive all the above benefits.
The treatment of grass fed cattle never include growth hormones, grains nor antibiotics. On the other hand, do not get the impression that they are not exposed to any antibiotics whatsoever. The reason for this is that these animals spent some time in the factories as they were being raised. These cases are however minimum for smaller independent farms. It is, therefore, wiser to get your beef from a local farmer you are well knowledgeable about.
It is quite demanding when it comes to producing a 100% fed beef. It requires huge grazing lands. The need increases for those in dry lands. Cattle that are grain fed take a minimum of 13 months to be ready for consumption while grass fed ones take a minimum of 20 months. For this reason, the farmers need to have a huge amount of land and time. Farmers also face difficulty to graze outdoors during unfavorable climatic conditions. All these reasons contribute to the high pricing of grass-fed beef. You should, however, choose an affordable distributor.
Put into consideration the shipping and delivery dates of the distributors. Ensure that supplier’s dates are favorable for your needs. They should have reasonable day deliveries for tan and light tan areas in the map. Similar considerations should also be taken for green and brown areas on the map.
