Grass fed beef is the superior, natural fed beef. Period.
Today, most beef you buy from the supermarkets are from a CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations.)
This means they are not allowed to free range on pasture for their natural feed (GRASS), but they are confined to small lots and fed grains (corn is the main grain among others=unnatural.)
Google search CAFOs if you aren't familiar with them, it will bring a whole new awareness of our "industrialized" food.

This is very sad to me and comes with many health concerns such as: unnatural use of antibiotics and hormones, possible E. coli bacteria formations from a diet of grains. Not only is grass fed beef naturally higher in Omega 3 fatty acids it is lower in the overall fat percentage it contains, and higher in vitamins and minerals; all among the thought of a humane life on a pasture.
Confined lot beef is higher in Omega 6 fatty acids - which most people already consume way too much of.
