I have been watching YouTube video's on nutrition and health and they all are pushing grass fed and grass finished beef. These guys have millions of views and subscribers and they all must be looking for GFF I waswondering if anyone is capitlizing on this market. Looks like you could get a premium if you can market it yourself selling quarters or prepackaged or not legal perhaps.

Also, pasture raised chicken and eggs are the rage. You could probabaly get $20 a dozen and bird.

Yes people are capitalizing on the market. Corn fed and aged beef is much better IMO. When I want lean meat I eat venison. i buy elk meat from a local elk farm. Buy buffalo the same way. Grass fed and no grain is edible but not near as good, again IMO, as venison, elk or buffalo.

The grocery store where we buy some of our meat makes a big deal by putting "grass fed" on their labels.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

I cant say I have ever had grass fed beef. In fact I have not had any beef in years, its hard to pass up free grass fed moose and the meat is much better.

The reason they want grass fed is no grains at all for the animal. Lectins in it are natural bug poision in plants and grains, vegies and seeds. Not good for humans guts.

Its a gimmick, nothing more. A way to take advantage of people that donít know any better and believe anything online. But it appears youíve already drank to kool aid.

i like moose. pretty expensive though when you live in ks. i killed one in 98. i could live on it. i could live on elk as well. its higher than beef too. a live cow elk is 3 dollars a pound live weight. i never asked about buying a whole buffalo. i like it but i get tired of it pretty quick.

The only problem with selling grass fed beef is you have no repeat customers. With corn fattened beef, people not only come back, but they bring their friends.

Grass fed beef is GROSS !! Tastes like cow poop.

Advertising beef as "grass fed" plays to city folk that don't know squat about good beef.I raised my own for years,,along with my own pigs and chickens.Good beef has been grain finished.

A store near me was selling grass fed hamburger they had a bunch of packages deeply reduced price since they wouldn't sell. I bought several pound packages because they were so cheap, couldn't pass it up.

About the only thing it's good for is tacos. Texture is not good and the flavor really not appealing. I even mix beef fat in with my venison burger!

We sell pasture poultry and free range eggs. Prices change according to feed cost but eggs $4 doz and chicken was $ 4.50 per lb.

As far as grass fed beef i dont have the fence for cows up yet but that what i plan to do. Cows are not made to eat much grain and it causes them to have stomic issues and fart more. But cows dont complain they like the desert first like kids. Grass feed is very lean but meat lockers are federally inspected so they must be able to cool the biggest fatest cow down fast enough to pass inspection. So a lean small cow cools to fast and that can make them tough. Same as not letting chickens rest 24-48 hrs before freezing them will make them tough.

Also just like everythig else all producers are not the same neither is qualiety.
Most people like fat meat my family does not.

No way is it the cooling that is the difference
It's an excuse made up by the ones promoting grass fed

What's always disappointed me with the grass fed/natural beef movement is that in order to get the consumer's attention . The people trying to sell a overpriced product have relentlessly attacked main stream beef production . I agree that there are benefits to grass fed . But does it out way conventional ? . I believe a educated consumer can decide that for themself without being constantly told how the other is bad . Having the grass fed/natural community continually bad mouthing conventional beef in order to sell a overpriced product into a nich market just causes division in the industry .

FYI - With the amount of mark-up on grass fed/natural there's a fair amount of untruthfulness that goes on . Buyer Beware

grass fed just aint for me or my family but the premium grass fed beef gets per pound would be worth raising it that way and marketing to those that think its better than grain fed beef.

I think a secondary.......hidden agenda.....behind grass fed beef is to sever the connection between grain and animal. Eliminates the need for feed yards, and in theory, would free up all that grain for human consumption. Or at least the acres devoted to grain for beef to acres for something humans might eat. Soybeans.......tofu and such.
