Have you ever heard of Forage Finished Beef?
How about Grass finished Beef?
New research is coming out (see video below) showing that grass finished beef and grain finished beef have huge variability within their categories on a number of nutrient density and health parameters.
Good grass finished beef is better than grain finished beef but lower quality grass finished beef is not.
The difference is diversity. The good grass finished beef is fed a diverse mix of plants (also called forages) which give the beef its improved nutrient density. The lower quality grass finished beef is raised on plants but with low diversity.
So lets identify this better meat product for everyone. If it’s raised on diverse plants then let’s call it forage finished beef.
PS. An added benefit of growing these diverse forage crops is that the diversity of plants also improves soil health. Improving human and environmental health makes forage finished beef a win-win.
