Checking In With Brandt Beef on the Corn Fed Beef vs. Grass Fed Beef Debate

Corn fed cattle generally produce meat more consistent with the type of cuts popular with many American diners. Corn fed beef tends to be marbled, with fat content that produces a smooth and consistent flavor. Grass fed beef, on the other hand, is leaner and potentially more healthy for both the cattle and the consumer.

Brandt Beef takes a more comprehensive approach to the corn fed beef vs. grass fed beef debate. All animals on the Brandt ranch are fed a corn based vegetarian diet for at least 365 days. This feed is mixed with alfalfa that is grown on the ranch without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. In fact, our fertilizer is all natural compost that is created from the waste of the corn fed cattle that eventually feed upon the alfalfa. That's what sustainable farming is all about.

The result is beef that is so delicious that Brandt Beef is the only beef producer to receive the Master Chefs' Institute Seal of Excellence. If you would like to find out more, call Brandt Beef at (800) 786-1670 or email us at thetruenatural@brandtbeef.com.
