Grass fed beef has been scientifically proven to be healthier than grain fed beef for those who consume it.
The reason why the commercial meat industry continues to provide grain fed beef is purely to maximize profit. At our farm, we allow our cattle to grow slowly, eating only fresh green grass to produce the health benefits of grass fed beef.
Texas Longhorn have a very low rate of birth issues. Because Texas Longhorn grazed and roamed the southwest for 400 years, without human management or intervention. Only the very sturdiest and healthiest genetics have survived to the modern era. Texas Long horn have the highest birth rates, almost never require any intervention giving birth, and give birth yearly for nearly 10 years longer than other common domestic cow breeds.
We raise our own beef. It is raised by our family, and for our family. We have 6 children and 15 grandchildren. We have 3 generations working the farm. We raise what we feed our family so that we know what we are eating.
The commercial meat industry packs on the pounds by feeding cattle grain. We have been told that grain fed is better. But it has been scientifically show that by not feeding cattle any grain for only 3 weeks reduces the occurrence of E coli bacteria by 98%. Our cattle is always fed grass, and never grain. There is no E coli in our beef at the time of slaughter.
We want healthier beef for our family, and you should insist of the same for your family.
