Nature intended for cows to eat grass. Before WWII all natural beef were grass finished. However following WWII the U.S. had a surplus of corn which was fed to the cows as a cheap way to produce beef.

Today, most beef purchased from the grocery store comes from cows raised in crowded, dirty feed lots. This includes organic beef. The cows must be fed antibiotics to keep them from contracting diseases.

At Wagon Wheel Ranch our cows are raised in the pasture, eating nothing but grass, hay, pumpkins and minerals. We follow the natural cycle of nature, calving in the spring so the lush green grass can be converted into healthy milk for the nursing calves.

Meat raised and sold as grass-fed comes from animals that are less likely to be contaminated by E. coli bacteria. Instead of being terrified and herded into kill zones, grass-fed cows are butchered on an individual basis by small processors that sterilize the equipment used between each animal.

 

Our grass-fed animals also are nutritionally superior to grain-fed animal products. They contain far less total fat, less saturated fat, less omega-6 fat, and far more vitamins, minerals, and beneficial fats, including omega-3 fats (essential for cardiovascular and nervous system health) and conjugated linoleic acid (which stimulates fat metabolism, supports lean tissue health, and inhibits cancer cell development).
