The Health Benefits of Grass-Fed Beef

At Cross Creek Cattle Company, we are concerned with our health. We believe the old adage "you are what you eat". For years we have raised our own vegetables in our private garden and our own beef in the pasture. We pick wild grapes and berries as they ripen naturally from sunshine. We enjoy farm fresh eggs from ranging chickens. We even milk goats for our dairy products. Despite our knowledge of health and nutrition, no one here is a licensed dietician or nutritionist so all our dietary information comes from Jo Robinson's book Pasture Perfect.

Grass-fed beef has:

*Less over-all fat
*Fewer calories
*More omega-3 fatty acids
*A healthier ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids
*More CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)
*More vitamin E
*More beta-carotene as compared to grain-fed beef

Don't take our word for the health benefits of grass-fed beef.
