A Natural Diet
Grass-fed beef is a very lean meat, similar to that of deer or other wild animals. Compared to conventional beef, it is very low in saturated fats. Because grass-fed cattle ingest only the natural diet they were designed to eat, their meat is much higher in beta-carotene (Vitamin A), conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), Vitamin E, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Research shows that these nutrients can help prevent cancer and cardiovascular disease. Have a look at this recent article on the health benefits of grass-fed beef from "Ask-Well."
Today, our modern diet has levels of Omega-3 which are low compared to that of our forefathers. The reason for this is that much of the meat and eggs we eat comes from animals which are fed corn and grain. The ultimate source of these beneficial nutrients is grass, and when you stop feeding animals grass, you remove these beneficial nutrients from that animals meat. Grass-fed beef's lower Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acid ratio is linked to reduced heart disease and greater bone density.
Antibiotics or Hormones?
Finally, all our meat is produced without the use of supplementary hormones or antibiotics, making Dobson's grass-fed beef as fresh and natural as can be.
