Not all grass-fed is

Feedlots, dairies, and rodeo steers can all make “grass-fed” claims. As we drill down deeper, even if cattle are 100% pasture raised, there are still major differences in farming practices

Why “grass-fed” isn’t enough.

All cattle start out on grass. Some even spend most of their life on grass. However, it is how the cattle are managed that makes a difference both in the quality of the beef and the impact on our environment.

Pasture One feeds a high-quality grass diet on holistically managed ranches, which makes a significant difference both in the quality of our beef and the health of our soil.
