There are multiple health benefits from grazing cattle.
One of the reasons for grazing is to get the benefits of eating 100% grass-fed beef, not only because of what is in it—complete protein, Omega 3 fatty acids, conjugated linoleic acid—but also because of what’s NOT in it – herbicides, pesticides, growth hormone and antibiotics. Also, meat from cattle fed on pasture poses no risk from Mad Cow disease, which comes from feeding cattle bone meal or other parts from cattle carcases. And risk from E.coli contamination is almost eliminated by choosing 100% grass-fed beef.
In addition, rotational grazing can have a critical role restoring fertility to depleted soil so that it produces nutrient- dense food. This fertility is achieved by allowing pasture plants to become deep rooted and by fostering an abundance of soil microbes that are essential to healthy plants, healthy cattle, and nutritious meat for humans.
