Organic beef – or as it’s accurately described, grass-fed beef – is said to have many health benefits. This isn’t only good for you as a rancher to be eating some of your own stock, but it’s a selling point that enables you to charge more per pound for your product.
So if you’ve thought about setting aside a portion of your cattle to be completely grass-fed, then look at the following health benefits you can tout as a result of raising your beef in that manner.
Everyone’s obsessed with fat these days. From trans-fat to regular fat, it’s tough to find food with the right balance. Grass-fed beef has less fat than their raised-on-feed counterparts, and this makes the meat that much more valuable come selling time.
More fatty acids
Wait, didn’t we just talk about why we don’t like fat? Well, grass-fed beef is proved to have more omega-3 fatty acids, one of the main ingredients in many heart health multivitamins. If you tell someone they can eat a medium rare steak and help their heart, you’ll have an easier time selling your beef.
Grass-fed beef also has more antioxidants than beef raised on feed. Vitamin E is especially high in this type of beef.
