What is Grass Fed Beef?
Grass Fed beef comes from cows fed a diet of natural grasses and not finished on a feedlot where the animals are rapidly fattened on a mixture of corn, soy, grains, other supplements, hormones, and antibiotics. Grass fed beef is lower in fat and calories and contain a higher omega-3 content than the commercial feedlot raised beef.
Our meat comes from cows fed on a premium quality diet program. The cows feed on a irrigated pasture containing grasses such as, white clover, strawberry clover, red clover, orchard grass, and annual rye. The animals are also fed an annual diet of medics , vetches, filaree and clovers. Occasionally, during extreme dry and hot temperatures, the cows are fed forage hay such as awn-less wheat and awn-less barley. This diet is proven and provided to us by our farmer in a signed affidavit, which many Grass Fed brands cannot provide.
The market for natural and organic beef products, currently at $350 million annually, could grow to over $1 billion within the next five years, attendees at a recent grass-fed beef conference were told.
More and more consumers are paying a premium and seeking out beef which is raised exclusively on grass.
“Grass-finished” generally means once the cattle is weaned from mothers’ milk, it consumes grass in open pasture for the entire lifespan, rather than getting fattened up on corn in feed lots during its final months.
Demand for grass-fed beef has been growing at a rate of 20 percent a year, according to one study. More stores are starting to offer grass-finished, but retail availability is still limited. Consumers are taking matters into their own hands by buying direct from ranchers.
Grass-finished beef has a more favorable ratio of Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids and a higher level of conjugated linoleic acids (CLA’s), known for fighting cancer and fat. While this has personal health appeal to some, Woerner says there are not major nutritional differences between the two types of beef. He says grass-fed is a niche market and the majority (97 percent) of beef production in this country still comes from conventionally raised cattle.
PITTSBURG — Clutching the bumblebee and owl stuffed toys she just won at a raffle, Breanna Pool couldn’t decide which activity she was enjoying the most.
The Los Medanos Elementary School fifth-grader was floating around, taking in all the activities set up for kids Thursday afternoon at the East County Boys & Girls Club during a turkey giveaway event hosted by former pro football player and Pittsburg native Cameron Colvin.
The families of the 60 children in the affordable day-care program all received turkeys during the Rise Above Turkey Giveaway, while the children participated in competitions and received goody bags and prizes..
“The kids have been looking forward to this. They have been so excited. All day, they kept asking ‘Can we jump yet?,’” said Tyiest Mayo, the club’s site coordinator.
A steady stream of children piled into a castle-shaped bounce house, while others colored in a Thanksgiving-themed picture, got their faces painted, or participated in an obstacle course that tested their agility.
After thinking about it, Pool decided her favorite activity was decorating cupcakes, particularly adding rainbow sprinkles over Funfetti frosting.
“This is just great for the kids. And the best part is everybody gets something,” said Sharon Pool, who was there with her granddaughter.
Colvin, 27, a former prep football star at De La Salle High School who later played at the University of Oregon and briefly with the San Francisco 49ers, said many of his afternoons as a child were spent at the Boys & Girls Club.
Colvin said his hope is to provide inspiration for the kids in the program and help “set them on the right path,” especially those who may come from challenging situations at home such as he did.
“It was really important for (Colvin), to have that sense of helping, especially to let the kids know he came from that exact same environment, even the same elementary some of them go to,” said Nathan Kenion, a friend who helped Colvin host the event.
“It’s a blessing,” said Curtis Flucus Jr., a longtime community volunteer and counselor at the club.
“There were so many people here, like Mr. Flucus, that were just such mentors and role models to all of us. It’s just a way to give back,” said Colvin, now an entrepreneur who lives in San Francisco.
Colvin dealt with a lot of tragedy at an early age, which he had to overcome, including losing both his parents before completing his sophomore year of high school. Also, his best friend, Terrance Kelly, was shot and killed in August 2004, two days before they were to report to Oregon for football practice.
Flucus remembers Colvin from his days at the Boys & Girls Club as a focused and intelligent young man.
“For these kids to see somebody that comes from where they come from and telling his testimony, it’s such a positive,” Flucus said.
Last year, Colvin and a few others tried to give away 600 turkeys to the community, but the giveaway was planned a bit last-minute and ran into logistical problems. This year, there was more planning and the focus was solely on those in the Boys & Girls Club program.
Camar Walker, a full-time student at Los Medanos College, was among the parents on hand to watch their kids enjoy themselves. Almost all said receiving the turkey will help them stretch their dollar farther and have a bit of a better holiday.
“After seeing the prices in stores and how they’ve risen and what little income I have, I wasn’t sure. So, this is a great gift,” Walker said.
