A true “grass fed” animal is one that is fed only on natural organic matter, such as grasses and clover, up to the day they are slaughtered. There are many companies that claim their beef or lamb is natural, when in fact it is not. Many times these animals are allowed to feed on natural grasses – up until a few months prior to the slaughter date. Then, these animals are moved into a feedlot where they are given a diet of grain or animal byproducts to fatten them up. Some producers of “natural” products will even give their livestock growth hormones or steroids. You should carefully research the company where you purchase your grass-fed beef and lamb to ensure their animals are 100% grass fed.
