JimRay Farms raises and sells grass-fed/grass-finished beef. Our herd mainly consists of Red Devon cattle, along with a few Black Angus cattle. We believe in providing high quality, all natural beef. Our cattle are solely grass-fed and pasture finished.
Grass Fed or Grain Fed?
While there are many persuasions to be found for every eating style under the sun, we believe in offering the public what it wants in terms of healthy beef. What are the benefits of grass-fed beef? Here are a few things to consider:
- It’s much leaner than its conventional counterpart.
- It’s also higher in key nutrients, including antioxidants, vitamins, and a beneficial fat called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) that’s been tied to improved immunity and anti-inflammation benefits.
- Grass-fed beef packs about 50% more omega-3 fatty acids than standard beef (although the amount is still far lower than the total omega-3s found in fatty fish like salmon).
- Grass-fed beef is also less likely to contain “superbugs”—bacteria that have become resistant to three or more classes of antibiotics—so it’s considered superior from a food safety perspective as well.
