What is Grass-fed Beef?
The history of domesticating animals for food has led to a variety of feeding methods and philosophies. Methods such as raising corn-fed, grain-fed, and grass-fed beef have been practiced for ages. While modern methods such as a diet full of steroids have increased meat production, many people prefer the cuts that come from grass-fed cattle. Grass-fed beef is exactly as it sounds: cows that have a diet that is predominately grass as opposed to other foods; And this is the philosophy the JBar Cattle family chooses when raising their cows.
Grass-fed Beef: Benefits
Foods that we humans consider to be healthy - like grains and corn - sound like they would be good for raising beef cattle, but that can be misleading when compared to grass as a food source. Corn and grains are not a cow's natural food source. Cows graze naturally on grass. According to usdairy, grass accounts for more than 50% of a cow's diet. There are benefits to a grass diet. Grass-fed beef produces leaner meat and at the same time has better fats and vitamins than others.
East-Texas Grass Pastures
Like any other animal, exercise is good for cows. Growing up in confined cattle farms don't allow mass-produce beef cows the freedom to move around as they please and get beneficial exercise.
JBar Cattle allows our cows to roam our rolling pastures - located in north-east Texas - to their heart's desire, feeding on the natural grass, and live mature and stress-free lives.
