Find out more about grass-fed beef and its advantages for your health.

You’ve heard about grass-fed beef and now you want to know the details. You’ve come to the right place! Here at Dark Hammock Legacy Ranch, we believe that grass-fed beef is better, and we’ve got the facts to back it up. Check out our website for more info, and read on to learn all about grass-fed beef. 


Grass-fed beef is proven to be healthier than conventional beef. That’s because these cows are fed diets of simply that: grass. Grass-fed beef has a lower fat content than conventional beef; in addition, it’s also lower in calories. 


Vitamins and nutrients still fill this beef though. Grass-fed beef is higher in Vitamins A, B and E, and also contains higher amounts of folic acid than conventional beef. Folic acid helps your body produce and maintain new cells, as well as helping to prevent changes to DNA that could cause cancer. Vitamin A supports your immune system, eyesight, and reproduction, as well as helping to keep your lungs, heart, kidneys and other organs healthy and working properly. Vitamin B encourages a working nervous system and helps your body break down food into usable energy. Vitamin E helps your body do that safely, by acting as an antioxidant. 


CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is also present in higher quantities in grass-fed beef than any other conventional meat. CLA is a naturally-occuring trans fat that has potent cancer-fighting properties. This concentration of CLA is highly-influenced by the cow’s diet. 


You may be unconvinced. Grass-fed beef may be nutritious, but does it taste good? We believe grass-fed beef will satisfy even the most picky of steak lovers. Grass-fed beef cooks differently than conventional beef due to its lower fat content. We recommended cooking your steak at a slightly lower temperature with a quick searing, being sure to include your favorite seasoning.
