Do you feed your cows any grain? No, we feed them no grain whatsoever. Our cows only eat fresh grass or hay from the day that they are weaned from their mother’s milk to the day that they are slaughtered.
What else do your cows eat? Our cows eat fresh grass during the warmer months and hay harvested from our own fields in the colder months. They drink water from our wells, and they have access to salt licks. That’s it.
Is there any special trick to cooking grass fed beef? For premium steaks, the answer is no; you cook them the way you would any other steak. One often-overlooked best practice for cooking steak is allowing the meat to warm to room temperature before throwing it on the grill.
For cuts that come from the legs, grass-fed beef will be tougher yet significantly more flavorful than comparable grain-fed meat. Not only are grass-fed cows eating the diet their ruminant digestive systems were intended to process versus fattening grain or corn, they roam the fields to graze on grass so their muscles are more developed than animals fed grain or corn - and often tightly confined on a feedlot. Slow-cooking methods such as sous vide band crock pots really bring out the best in grass-fed beef, which contains much more collagen than grain-fed feedlot beef.
