It seems lately that we hear about grass fed beef more and more. For the most part grass-fed cows eat mostly grass, while grain-fed cows eat mostly soy and corn (which is unnatural to them) during the latter part of their lives. So while most cows start out on pasture, drinking milk and eating grass. It is, however, the conventionally raised cows that are later moved to feedlots and fed grain-based diets, while grass-fed cows may continue to live on grassland. What a lot of people don't realize is that what a cow eats can have a major effect on the nutrient composition of the beef. This is evident when it comes to the fatty acid composition of beef. Grass-fed beef usually contains less total fat than grain-fed beef, which means that gram for gram, grass-fed beef contains fewer calories. Another choice that consumers have is to buy organic beef. Certified organic beef is meat that comes from a fully verifiable production system, that collects information on the complete history of each animal in the program, this according to the USDA.

All history, veterinary care, and feed on the animal must be kept track of. Also to be certified as organic, all of the cattle should be born and raised on certified organic pasture. Never receive antibiotics and never receive any growth-promoting hormones. Are to be fed only certified organic grains, with corn considered a grain and grasses. And must have unrestricted outdoor access. Certified organic ground beef ensures that the meat comes from happy cows who were fed a healthy diet of organic grains and grasses, and able to have outdoor access and fresh air. Using grass fed beef and organic beef are two better options for raising cows than conventionally raised cows.Thank you to Brandie at "The Country Cook" recipe site for sharing this refrigerated biscuits recipe for barbecue biscuit cups.
