Traditionally, all beef was grass fed.
But in the United States today what is commercially available is almost all feedlot beef. The reason? Feedlot beef can be raised faster, and so is more profitable. Seventy-five years ago, steers were 4 or 5 years old at slaughter. Today, they are 14-16 months old. You can’t take a grass-fed beef calf from birth weight of 80 pounds to 1,200 pounds in a little more than a year on grass.
Our animals are designed to forage.
Feedlot beef are fed grain, primarily corn, in order to make them as fat as possible as fast as possible in commercial feedlots. Grass fed beef has been found to contain fewer calories and to be lower in both overall fat and artery-clogging saturated fat than grain fed beef and is higher in protein.
