Is Grass Fed Beef Better for my Pet?

What's the difference between Grass fed beef versus Grain fed beef? There's a lot of notable differences between these two labels in nutrient density and ideals.

Grass fed means these cows had access to pasture to graze on. Because grass is lower in calories than grain, these cows typically take longer to get to the proper weight and finish versus grain fed beef that are fed high calorie grains to grow and fatten up faster. 

When looking at nutrient differences, grass fed beef liver is a healthier treat option compared to regular, grain fed beef liver. Grass fed beef liver naturally has 33% less fat and 11% high protein than grain fed beef. Grain fed beef liver, on the other hand, may contain higher levels of saturated fats and cholesterol.

Another perk grass fed beef has over traditional, grain fed beef is the higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). These essential fats have anti-inflammatory properties and may help to improve heart health. Studies show that grass fed beef can have up to 5 times more Omega 3s than grain fed.  

When it comes to our pets, we want to feed them the same quality we'd want to feed ourselves and human family members, which is why we chose to produce a higher quality grass fed beef liver treat. You can learn more about the benefits of this highly nutritious organ meat here.
