Is grass fed meat different to grain fed that everyone talks about?

‘”Grass-fed beef, or beef produced from cattle finished on forage only diets, has been touted as a more nutritious beef product. There are a number of reports that show grass-fed beef products contain elevated concentrations of (Vitamin A,) Beta-carotene and alpha-tocopherol (Vitamin E), increased levels of omega-3 fatty acids, a more desirable omega-3:omega-6 ratio, and increased levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)”

How do we define “grass-fed?” The cattle are on pasture, not in feed lots eating silage. They are also finished on grass, and do not eat grains at all. We don’t process animals in the winter or early spring, when they are only eating dry grass. Our animals are eating green grass right up to the time of processing. All of our pastures are free from the use of pesticides or other chemical treatments, and completely organic.

Our Angus Cattle and White Dorper lamb meet all the requirements of Standards Australia  with a preference for grass fed animals which are lower in fat and healthier for the consumer.We humanely raise excellent grass / pasture fed Beef and Lamb in the Upper South East of South Australia on our 5000 acre property “Caloundra Station”.Our Cattle and Sheep are free to roam in the pastures eating a mixture of Lucerne, Rye Grass, Clover and Veldt grass. These food stuff’s are naturally occurring and Lucerne being planted by us.

Meat from grass-fed animals has two to four times more omega-3 fatty acids than meat from grain- fed animals. Omega-3s are called “good fats” because they play a vital role in every cell and system in your body. Of all the fats, they are the most heart-friendly. People who have ample amounts of omega-3s in their diet are less likely to have high blood pressure or an irregular heartbeat. Remarkably, they are 50 percent less likely to suffer a heart attack. Omega-3s are essential for your brain as well. People with a diet rich in omega-3s are less likely to suffer from depression, schizophrenia, attention deficit disorder (hyperactivity), or Alzheimer’s disease

Believe it or not Americans use this on their websites, know what you are ordering, know what your family is eating. Here is Australia many restaurants love using “grainfed for 100 days”. This just means the animals have been placed in a feed lot and fattened up. The meat will taste different to grass fed free roaming animals.
