About grass-fed (pasture raised) meat

Beef from pasture-fed (grass-fed) cattle has a lower fat content and has less kilojoules than beef from grain-fed cattle. If the meat is very lean, it can have as much as two thirds less fat as a similar cut from a grain-fed animal - grass-fed beef can have the same amount of fat as skinless chicken, wild deer, or elk. Research also shows that lean beef actually lowers your "bad" LDL cholesterol levels.

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 also 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.

Another benefit of omega-3s is that they may reduce your risk of cancer. In animal studies, these essential fats have slowed the growth of a wide array of cancers and also kept them from spreading. Although the human research is in its infancy, researchers have shown that omega-3s can slow or even reverse the extreme weight loss that accompanies advanced cancer and also hasten recovery from surgery.

Omega-3s are most abundant in seafood and certain nuts and seeds but they are also found in animals raised on pasture. The reason is simple; Omega-3s are formed in the chloroplasts of green leaves and algae. Sixty percent of the fatty acids in grass are omega-3s. When cattle are taken off omega-3 rich grass and shipped to a feedlot to be fattened on omega-3 poor grain, they begin losing their store of this beneficial fat. Each day that an animal spends in the feedlot, or fed grain in the paddock, its supply of omega-3s is diminished.
