100% grass-fed cattle are fed only grass and forage for their entire lives whereas grain-fed cattle are fattened up using cheap fillers like corn, soy and animal byproducts. 100% grass-fed cattle freely roam in open pastures while grain-fed cattle are typically packed into feedlots and hooked up to a range of antibiotics and growth hormones. Remember, you are what you eat.
This is up for debate as taste is largely subjective, but the general opinion among beef consumers is that grass-fed beef has more flavor and a cleaner taste than grain-fed beef. The Today Show staff did a blind taste test of our steak vs. ordinary steak and said it was a ‘no contest’, ButcherBox was the hands-down winner. Huffington post also ran a taste test and found that all but one participant preferred the taste of 100% grass-fed beef over grain-fed beef.
