Today we’re going to skim the surface on an popular agriculture topic, cattle nutrition. We don’t usually go this deep into agriculture topics, but we decided to for a few reasons:
- We sometimes get questions from customers who ask if our cattle only eat grass. The answer is no. All cattle (even grass finished cattle) sometimes need to eat something other than grass in order to be healthy, like mineral.
- We try to be completely transparent about what we do on our farm, and one of the things we focus on daily is cattle nutrition.
- If you’re thinking, “I’m a typical consumer that just wants good grass fed beef. Why should I care about cattle nutrition and mineral?” The answer is because without cattle nutrition and mineral, the quality and quantity of grass fed beef changes. In other words, without good cattle nutrition, your steaks won’t be as good.
