All Australian cattle eat their natural pasture diet at some stage during their lifetime. BUT GRASS FED/FINISHED BEEF HAS A MORE FAVOURABLE OMEGA (w) 6:3 RATIO. A healthy diet should consist of roughly 1-4 times more w-6 fatty acids than w-3 fatty acids (FA). w-3 w-6 A typical western diet contains 11-30 times more w-6 than w-3 and w-3 potentially contributes to inflammatory disorders/diseases. w-6 JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED. OMEGA (W) 3S "More Grass fed & finished beef shows a omega 3 fatty acid content." consistently higher concentration of w-3 FAS, thereby creating a more favourable w-6:3 ratio.

The CLA and Omega-3 in milk fat were back to the original level within 7 days after cows were off the pasture & fed grain diet. Reference Aguiar, G., T. R. Dhiman, A. L. Une, S. F. Porter, and L. L.

VITAMIN A VITAMIN E Vitamin A is an essential vitamin required for vision, gene transcription, boosting immune function & skin health. Vitamin E protects cells against the effects of free radicals that may contribute to chronic disease. Pasture fed & finished steers incorporate 7X more beta carotene into muscle tissues as compared to grain-fed animals. Cattle finished on pasture produce 4X more Vit E in the final meat product than cattle fed high grain/ concentrate diets.

Grass only diets improve the SOD/CAT antioxidant concentration Because GT compounds are elevated in lush green forages, Grass fed & finished beef is particularly high in GT as compared to grain-fed contemporaries. in beef, protecting the muscle lipids against oxidation as well as providing you with an additional source of antioxidants.
