“If you eat a typical amount of beef per year,” Robinson points out in Pasture Perfect, a book about the benefits of pasture-raised animals, “which in the United States is about 67 pounds, switching to grass-fed beef will save you 16,642 calories a year.”
When CNN compared grass fed beef to store bought feedlot cows in this article, they made a number of points:
- While more expensive per pound, grass fed beef gave you more meat per pound.
- When buying in bulk, grass fed beef is only slightly more expensive than store bought.
- Buying directly from farmers in the next logical step in the buy local movement
- Grass-fed beef is lower in calories, contains more healthy omega-3 fats, more vitamins A and E, higher levels of antioxidants, and up to seven times the beta-carotene.
