Grass fed beef simply means that the cattle were allowed to forage and graze for their own fresh food. They may be given close substitutes like alfalfa during the winter, but unlike grain-fed animals, the emphasis is still on providing the closest thing to a natural diet as possible.
Grass-fed beef has been found to have a healthier ratio (4:1) of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids. It often contains higher levels of antioxidants like vitamin E and A, too. The cattle at RRR are NOT given hormones and antibiotics, in contrast to conventional feedlot-factory beef.
In winter months when grass is not as plentiful, our cattle are supplemented with alfalfa or grass hay harvested and sun dried from our pastures during the peak growing season when we have an overabundance of grass. As live food enthusiasts know . . . sun drying maintains the enzymes in the grass. It is a wonderful supplement to our winter pastures, so our cattle can continue to graze and have plentiful supplies for their needs year-round.
Our prime pastures contain lush super-food forage of sweet clover, alfalfa, and a variety of high-protein, high-sugar grasses. This produces the greatest amount of gain plus uniform tasting and incredibly healthy beef for humans.
For those of our customers who recognize the benefits of super green live food, they will already know about the benefits of alfalfa and wheat grass juices. Humans need juicers to assimilate these super foods but for cattle this is their most nutritious natural diet and does not destroy their intestinal pH like feedlot diets. In fact, this diet brings them to peak health.
Our grass-fed cattle sold to you NEVER spend a second on a feedlot.
