Our Beef

cow_grass_fedMy wife is wonderful.  She has spent much time and energy finding different local sources.  We now have a reasonably priced and healthy source of organic grass-fed beef which which buy in bulk and split with friends.  The liver is fantastic.

I was surprised by the ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 in our beef.  Our state university tested this organic beef and compared to other common beef sources.  Here is the data !

  1. I heard something similar on a “Super Human Radio” podcast. With those ratios on the “organic” beef I would think it was grass fed. Do you know for sure if it was? If not I wonder why the organic corn fed beef didn’t have similar values as the retail. There is an issue here with CLA as well. Did they happen to test for that as well?

    Nice blog, BTW.

  2. Yes, it was grass fed — that was key ! No CLA was not tested to my knowledge. Thanx for visiting.
