With recent beef recalls for the inhumane treatment of downer cows plus the concern over e coli and mad cow disease, Fox News investigated typical supermarket feedlot beef vs the health benefits of grass fed beef.
Fox News spent the day with Dr. Patricia Whisnant. She is a veterinarian, grass farmer, the President of American Grassfed Association, owner of AmericanGrassFedBeef.com and processes their beef at their family owned and operated facility.
Her grass fed beef is certified for high animal welfare by Animal Welfare Approved. Dr. Whisnant states that grass fed beef is healthier for consumers, safer, eco friendly, better for the environment and better for animals.
Fox News did an independent test on AmericanGrassFedBeef.com and supermarket beef. They found AmericanGrassFedBeef.com was higher in protein, lower in fat and cholesterol.
