“Grass-fed” has now become a food buzz word. Advocates contrast grass-fed beef to beef produced by Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) and claim that grass-fed beef is greener, more humane, and more healthful. But just how green, how humane, and how healthful is it? We need to evaluate grass-fed beef from a variety of angles and by comparing it to several different kinds of meat production, beginning with the much maligned CAFO (feedlot) mode of production.
Cows, sheep, and other grazing animals are blessed with the ability to convert grasses into food that we can digest. They can do this because they are ruminants, which means that they possess a rumen, a 45 or so gallon (in the case of cows) fermentation tank in which resident bacteria convert cellulose into protein and fats.
In the past, all beef was grass fed beef, but today what is commercially available in the United States is almost all feedlot corn fed beef. The reason? It’s faster, and so more profitable. Seventy years ago, steers were 4 or 5 years old at time of slaughter. Today, they are only 14 or 16 months. You can’t take a beef calf from a birth weight of 80 pounds to 1,200 pounds in a little more than a year on grass. It takes enormous quantities of corn, protein supplements, antibiotics and other drugs, including growth hormones. The end result, and this is what ends up on you plate, is corn fed beef full of growth hormones, protein supplements and antibiotics. This is a virtual breeding ground for toxins and bacteria to develop.
