On the one hand, it's heartening to see that the movement towards eating real meat has become enough of a threat to the hegemony of agribusiness and industrial meat production for the mainstream media to do a hit piece on it (source: Fox News.) On the other hand, it's dispiriting to see John Stossel pushing a flimsy tissue of falsehoods, thereby misleading people into making unhealthy and environmentally destructive food choices.

The first thing I noticed, upon actually reading what Stossel implied was the supporting scientific data, was that the document he referenced was not peer-reviewed science at all, but a…

I know this is a bit late but here goes ( Im new to your site and have been reading it all for the last few days- I am 80/20 Paleo for about 18 mts and have been working the last four to be 99.9 % paleo) What time of the season is grass fed really grass fed as some farms have little or no grass in the spring yet still sell sides and quaters. Have you read STEAK by Mark Schatzker? Talks a lot about grass fed beef ( Tallgrass )

Most farms will harvest hay to feed their cattle during seasons with no fresh forage...but grass-finished beef will have its best flavor and nutrition when it's been fed on fresh, green grass for at least 90 days, and preferably 120 (this from a Nevada rancher).

Exactly when this happens is dependent on the growing season for grass in your area.

No, I haven't read "Steak"...I'll look into it.  Thanks for the tip!

This comments is VERY late coming but I think you'll find the problem of grass-fed versus corn-fed beef has just been solved….they're going to feed cattle candy instead.

High price of corn forcing farmers to feed candy to livestock

Something about this forum software is screwing up links: it tries to put an ellipsis in the middle to truncate it, but that causes the link itself to truncate.  If you want links to work, you have to format them as HTML.

It looks like I need leading by the hand as despite having some knowledge of html I couldn't get my attempt to work. It still truncated the address while leaving all around it okay.

 

The address in my second post was deliberately split by me. If they are joined together they will get you to the article.

 

[Edit: I fixed the link in your original -JS]
