Health Benefits

What are "grassfed" animal products? All of our ruminants raised in this country, including cattle, sheep, goats, and bison, are raised on pasture for the first months of their lives. Then the vast majority are transported to distant feedlots where they are "finished" on a grain-based diet. Typically, the animals are treated with a variety of drugs and feed additives to speed their production and to minimize the health problems that come from eating an artificial diet and living in stressful, crowded conditions. This is the type of meat that you find in virtually all grocery stores and restaurants.
