Grass Fed Beef Vs. Grass Finished Beef- What’s The Difference?

You’ve probably heard the passionate arguments in favor of grass fed beef. Grass fed beef is a term used to describe a cow’s diet of grass only. It may have less fat, and more antioxidants and vitamins than your standard, grain fed ground beef. Studies; however, are lacking in determining the long term health benefits of a diet composed of grass fed beef. There are so many parameters to consider when performing these studies that the data isn’t conclusive. Grass finished beef means that after weaning from his mother, a cow might eat grain for several months, but finish his life on grass. The grain allows the cow an initial weight gain that provides for a richer, more marbled, piece of beef while the grass finish adds a complexity of flavors not present in cattle fed grain only.
