You might wonder what all the talk about grass fed beef is, and wonder why more and more people prefer this type of beef. When it comes time for cows to be moved to feedlots, there are some that will go to conventionally raised lots where they are often given drugs and hormones to help them grow faster, along with antibiotics to survive the unsanitary living conditions until they are ready to be used for meat. To compare those cows with grass-fed cows, who may get to live on grassland for the remainder of their lives. So generally speaking, grass-fed cows eat mostly grass, while grain-fed cows eat mostly corn and soy during the latter part of their lives. 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 feeds, 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.
