Grass Fed Beef - Health Benefits
Western Kentucky raised grass fed beef should provide superior health benefits. Compared with grain fed beef, even organic grain fed beef, grass fed beef appears to have more "healthy" fat, is lower in "unhealthy" fat and it's richer in potent antioxidants. Furthermore, grass fed beef is typically lower in calories. Our beef does not contain added hormones, nor do we feed any antibiotics. A 6-ounce grass fed steak has close to 100 fewer calories than a typical 6-ounce grain fed steak. If you consume a typical diet (66.5 lbs. of grain fed beef per year) and you switch to grass fed beef, you will save around 17,733 calories per year--without requiring any willpower or reduction of portion sizes.

Grass Fed Beef - Cooking Tips
Our dry aged, Grass Fed Beef is best when it is cooked slightly lower and slower. You can still sear the meat, just be sure to sear it fairly quickly, with the remainder of the cooking done lower and slower. Also, do not thaw grass fed beef in a microwave. Let it thaw naturally (thawing in a refrigerator is recommended). More information coming soon!
Our Kentucky Grass Fed Lowline Angus Cattle & our Lowline X Tarentaise cross cattle, are raised & finished on lush green pasture. Cattle are ruminating animals that are designed to digest high fiber forage diets. However, due to selection for modern conventional production (grain fed), not all cattle are able to produce superior beef on forage alone. Our cattle have been bred and hand selected for generations to thrive on grass alone. We also utilize modern DNA testing (marbling & tenderness) which helps to ensure that we are only using quality genetics to produce the highest quality grass fed beef possible! How many other grass fed beef producers can say that they utilize DNA testing for marbling or tenderness? Plus, we've had several wonderful mentors & partners who have helped us learn about how to produce quality grass fed beef. One of our current partners is Lincoln Land Cattle Company, a former grass fed beef retailer in Taylorsville, Illinois, who also supplied retail stores, in Springfield, Illinois, for several years.
