Benefits from Nelson Family Farm Products
Our Angus cattle is 100% grass fed to finished all natural beef, no added hormones, no antibiotics and NEVER any grain.
The benefits of 100% grass fed to finished beef in comparison with the grain fed products are:
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acids are good for cardiovascular health and are the reason that fish are a recommended part of our diet. However, because of mercury contamination, seafood should be limited. Because our cattle is fed grass, Nelson Family Farm beef is a good source of Omega 3's and without the mercury! When cattle are finished on grains, the Omega 3's are replaced with Omega-6's and saturated fats.
CLA's and their Benefits
CLA or Conjugated Linoleic Acid, is a potent cancer fighting substance that naturally occurs in beef cattle. Cattle fed a natural grass diet have significantly higher levels of CLA's than grain fed cattle. CLA also: prevents tumor growth, reduces risk of breast cancer, prevents plaque formation in arterial walls, promotes lean body mass while reducing fat deposition and exhibits anti-diabetic effects.
