Pasteur fed beef or the beef that came from the cattle that were raised on grass only diets are branded as the most nutritious red meat product. This was concluded from the number of report showing the nutritional value of grass fed beef. This brought to the boom in raising grass feed cattle. Million of acres had converted their acres of industrial grain field to vast pastures which resulted in the increase in the production of Pasteur fed beef.

This brought to the healthier food on our table, decrease in feed grains, elimination of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, decrease E Coli and it would help in the decline of global warming gases. There is an enormous evidence of Pasteur fed meat production found on the labels that we often see on the packages stating that it is a Pasture Fed Meat across the country. The label states that the beef were produced from cattle that grow on the pasture land and not feedlots. The cattle do no received antibiotics or hormones in their food to speed up the growth. Additionally, they were raised and handled humanely. This signals the emergence of the grass fed meat at local groceries, supermarkets and made a lucrative business on online meat stores that delivered the grass feed meat on bulk. Slowly, it has gaining entrance among the consumers who are particular about the food they eat and their health.

Grass fed beef are by far more expensive than the grain feed meat simply because the meat is healthier. Consumers on the other hand would pay the premium price for this kind of meat because they don’t like the cruelty and antibiotics associated with grain feed meat. There is a truth about the health claim for it the meat from grass fed meat are leaner and more nutritious. The meat has low Omega-6 fats that are mostly linked to the cause of heart disease and more importantly, the meat has higher level of Omega-3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acids. The high percentage presence of these two acids lessens the risk of heart disease. Not to be forgotten, the taste of the grass feed beef is tastier. The meat has a distinctive taste and it has a little bit of grassy flavor compared to the grain feed meat.

Nowadays, cattle are grown on the grasslands as early as the first months of their lives. Fanatics of pasture raised beef say that switching to this kind of beef is not only for health reasons but they like to raise them in more human fashion plus the fact that it is good for the environment.
