Why "No Grain"?"A cow's digestive system is not designed to handle grains. Whilie they may consume an incidental amount of seeds and grains from mature grasses, they do not consume anywhere near the quantities needed to "finish" them or get them "fattened up" to market weight. Cattle finished on Cattle finisihed on grain have a much higher Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio than grass-fed. Samples of grass-fed beef showed a range of 2:1 to 4:1 in Omega-6 to Omega 3 while conventional beef has been shown to have much higher O6:O3: ratios, often as high as 15:1. This ratio is significant as high Omega 6: Omega3 ratios are linked to inflammation and many chronic diseases. Even cattle who are fed small amounts of grain to finish them to market weight more quickly and produce a little more fat marbling in their meat will have significantly higher Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acid ratios. Additionally, the digestive systems of grain fed cattle become more acidic, resulting in the "need" for interventions to help them stay "healthy" (or rather, free from acute illness)..
