Lyn1 Posted July 7, 2012 Share Posted July 7, 2012 I'm wondering what the label "grass fed" actually means. I'd like to think it means the cows are ony fed grass, but I don't think it does. The farmers I've spoken to (who say they have grass fed meat) will tell me, "Oh, yeah. We do offer them grains too." Or today, when I went to the farmer's market, the lady told me their cows are pastured almost all of their lives, but then they are fed grains just before they are slaughtered in order to fatten them up. Then, there's the "grass fed" meat at Whole Foods. Is it really? They say that the fat in grass fed is more yellow than in the regular kind. I looked at a grass fed steak and a non-grass fed organic steak side by side and the color of the fat looked exactly the same. I wonder if they are grain fed, but then are fed just a little grass so that they can be called "grass fed". Can anybody shed some light on this?
