The Benefits of Grass Fed Beef

The results reported below are from the Coyote Creek Farm blog. Coyote Creek raises pastured poultry, grass fed beef, and has the only commercial organic feed mill in the state of Texas. Wabash Antiques and Feed Store in Houston is considering carrying their feed, and that is where I found out about them.

The linked post features helpful guidelines for cooking grassfed beef and then closes with the information below:

In the Grass Farmer’s April 2006 issue, Dr. Tilek Dhiman of Utah State University spoke at the American Grass Fed Association’s seminar and reported:

Some of grass fed’s benefits in comparison with the grain fed products are:

- 500% More CLA
- 400% More Vitamin A
- 300% More Vitamin E
- 75% More Omega-3
- 78% More Beta-Carotene

In grass fed meats studies:

- 11 out of 11 found CLA decreases cancer
- Four out of five have found a decrease in body fat
- Two out of two have found a decrease in heart disease
- Three out of three found a decrease in adult diabetes
- Six out of six have found increased immunity to disease
- Two out of two found an increase in bone density
