Ontario Pastured* Beef for Sale

We share the belief that cattle were designed to eat grass and that a diet that is primarily starch based (eg. corn) is about as unnatural as you can get, and is intensely unhealthy for the animal as well as consumers of food products from those animals.  While the preceding statement is true one should not then make the assumption that cattle should eat exclusively vegetative grass.  That, in our opinion (and the facts of history) is no more natural than "industrial corn fed beef".  Fact is that Mercola has never raised livestock in Canada.  Nor does it appear that he has studied the natural diet of ruminants.

The truth of the matter is that throughout history cattle and all ruminants have grazed on grass in the early summer and dried grasses and their seeds (yes barley,oats, rye and wheat grass seeds to name a few) during the fall, winter and spring with the key facts being that the seeds made up a small percentage of the animals diet.  We replicate this by feeding seeds (some call it grain) up to 15%  of the diet of our cattle. We will not deprive our cattle of the energy they need and enjoy any more than good parents would totally deprive their children of healthy energy components of their diet.
