Why It's Better For You
Because grass is what cattle are meant to eat, beef from grass-fed, grass-finished cattle is better than beef from grain-fed cattle in a number of ways. It is higher in Vitamin A, Vitamin E, CLAs; has a better balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids; has a favorable unsaturated fatty acid ratio; and provides more dietary protein. It's better for you, plain and simple.
Why It's Better For The Animals
Tallgrass Beef cattle aren't kept in pens or feedlots—they spend their life in a pasture, in a stress-free environment, grazing in the kind of communal groups they prefer. They aren't given hormones to enhance their growth and they have no need of antibiotics to help them digest grain, which isn't their natural food. They live as nature intended.
Why It's Better For The Planet
Our cattle are raised naturally, perpetuating an age-old cycle of nature. They eat grass and naturally fertilize the land to grow more grass, never adding extra carbon to the atmosphere. In fact, growing prairie grass has been shown to be one of the most effective ways of reducing our carbon footprint.
Why It's Better For Dinner
Tallgrass cattle are derived from special genetic stock whose origins are verified and fully traceable. We use ultrasound technology to safely and humanely find the animals with just the right amount of marbling and muscle. Through this unique combination of heritage genetic bloodlines and ultra-modern technology, Tallgrass produces the most tender, best-tasting grass-fed beef available.
