There are those beef eaters that insist on eating 'only' grass fed and finished beef. Why? Because it supposedly has more omega 3 than other beef. These are the same people that insist on their beef being as lean as they can get it.

I learned something from Dr Chris Raines, meat scientist, (deceased) that has stuck with me. He, and I, pose this: If you insist on your beef being lean, how can it have increased omega3 when omega3 is a fat? Something is missing here. I have yet to have anyone give me documented evidence as to how this is possible. It seems to me from a logical standpoint that it is not possible. Just sayin'.

Raising your own beef - Part 2

Grass fed vs Grain fed
     The amount of land you have available to you will determine the answer to this question. If you have very little land, then you will need to grain finish your beef. This will be a combination of grass, hay, and grain.
     If you have a fair amount of land, my guess is 25 acres or more you may be able to grass fatten your beef. You will need to check with your local experts. Start with your state extension agents.

So you want to raise your own beef. Part 1

This is the first in a series of blogs on issues involved in growing your own beef. I am sure that I will leave something out, but this will be a good start to get you thinkin'.

Some of the basics:
Grass fed vs. grain fed
Good Soil?
How much land?
What breed of animal?
How harvested?
This is not all inclusive, but an overview.

This is the beginning. If you have comments, questions, or suggestions just let me know.
