Good news for omnivores.
Sage Mountain Beef provides a very good source of protein and vitamin B12 and a good source of selenium, zinc, iron, phosphorus and other B vitamins without the concern for pesticide, hormone and antibiotic residues.
Pasture grasses and other forages are the most natural foods for cows and other ruminant animals. From a health standpoint, there's no question that cows do better on these natural foods than on grain-based feeds.
Special Note: Our beef is not "Certified" organic. However, because our Steers are allowed to roam freely, eat organic grasses (and other forages, such as vegetable plants), and are free of hormones and antibiotic residues, there is no practical difference. In fact, our beef may very well be nutritionally superior to most "Certified" organic beef.
Too much grain-feeding can cause excess formation of gas in the digestive tract of the cow and pose serious health risks. When cows are given the opportunity to follow a diet composed of their natural foodstuffs, they are much healthier.
Not surprisingly, the meat they provide as food is much healthier as well.
