Slanker Meat Descriptions

meat-descriptions.jpg

The grass-fed livestock business is ranching in its most basic form. The rancher owns land and it grows grass. The grass gets its energy from the sun and it's free. Grass provides 100% of the nutrients and energy needs of all domestic livestock when it is eaten. Pastures are irrigated by natural rainfall. The livestock have a symbiotic relationship with the plants and the soils. Therefore the rancher simply selects the critters he wants and let's them dine on the grass. If he keeps it real simple, the rancher just grows grass and lets the livestock do all the work. This is basic. Ironically, this simplistic, most environmentally friendly approach produces the healthiest food man can eat.

When it comes to pigs and chickens it's not so easy. They can't be raised efficiently like ruminants. Many people do raise pigs and chickens on pastures, but they are supplemented usually with corn and soy. In the end, in terms of nutrition these pigs and chickens are very much like the meat products you can buy at Walmart and, yes, Wholefoods. Organic, natural, and other nice names do not apply to nutrition. That's why we are Beyond Organic.

It's also why we go the extra mile with very expensive supplements to make sure our pork and poultry products are the world's best. The critters are what they eat. Please take the time to understand what we do. Learn what the Omega-6 to Omega-3 essential fatty acid (EFA) ratio means to your health. Visit our Education section for comprehensive information. For quick comparisons read up about each of our meats and then check out their EFA ratios.

Check HERE for detailed fatty acid profiles on a wide variety of our meats. The nutrient density and diversity plus the perfect fatty acid profile of grass-fed meats is why we raise and market grass-fed meats and Omega-3 meats.

SGFM’s Meat Processor

In November 2017, our USDA meat processor, Krehbiels Specialty Meats, was featured on a Wichita, Kansas television news broadcast. The video they produced does an excellent job of showing how complex the meat processing business can be, especially for very small plants.

Krehbiels is not like the huge meat processors that employ thousands of people and process thousands of head per day. The big outfits produce a narrow range of fresh meat cuts which they sell in bulk to meat brokers, grocery chains, and smaller specialty meat processors that make name-brand products. In comparison, Krehbiels does the same as the big outfits and the specialty plants but on a smaller scale to service their retail score, individuals, and businesses like ours.

Omega-3 Pork Information

This is our third major step towards providing our customers with “perfect” nutrition. Starting way back in 1999 it was originally grass-fed meats and wild caught seafood. Over the years we discovered the shortcomings in pastured chicken and even wild-caught pork. We did the best we could at the time. But now we are pushing for better products in those meat lines as well. Optimizing human health is our primary focus.

Grass-Fed Beef Information

Raising grass-fed cattle on pastures is the most environmentally friendly form of food production. For hundreds of millions of years animals have had a symbiotic relationship with the green leaf. It is exactly the same today. Pastures are literally seas of green leaves that are carbon sinks. They are in harmony and balance with the livestock. No other form of food production can match that harmony and all others require far more resources and inputs to produce what is, in most cases, inferior food.

Slanker Select Omega-3 Turkeys Not Found in Health Food Stores

You will only find Omega-3 Turkeys at Slanker Grass-Fed Meat. Our turkeys are the world's most nutritious turkeys because they are raised with a special feed and supplements that gives them a healthy essential fatty acid profile. In addition they are nutrient diverse and dense with a zero glycemic index. No added flavors, honey, sugar, preservatives, or spices.

Grass-Fed Pet Food Information

People love their pets. Yet all too often they do not analyze what they feed them. Whether their pet is a dog, cat, hamster, white rat, fish, a bird, or what have you, its diet is still critical to its long-term health and well-being.

Wild Caught Seafood Information

Our Pacific Ocean wild caught seafood is of the finest quality available online. It is caught by commercial fishermen and processed by a major seafood company that distributes seafood nationwide to upscale retailers and restaurants. Slanker provides only the best wild-caught seafood online.

Omega-3 Chicken Information

We have never been fully satisfied with the nutritional characteristics of Pastured and/or Free Range Chickens. They just consume too much corn, soybeans, and other feedstuffs that are high in Omega-6 and low in Omega-3 fatty acids creating undesirable fatty acid ratios.

Grass-Fed Goat Information

For years we've had a supply issue when sourcing grass-fed goat here in the USA. That's why are now offering 100% grass-fed goat from Australia. Ranchers in the southern hemisphere have a long history of raising grass-fed stock and they are good at it.
 
Grass-fed goats are especially partial to leaves of trees and bushes. They do real well in arid regions. In Australia feeds such as “starch-free” plant proteins, grains, cottonseed meal, and what-have-you are not part of their diet.  When goats are raised on grasses and leaves, which are the foundation foods for all animal life, they are definitely grass-fed and grass-finished.

Grass-Fed Lamb Information

For years we've had a supply issue when sourcing grass-fed lamb here in the USA. That's why we now offer 100% grass-fed lamb from Australia. Ranchers in the southern hemisphere have a long history of raising grass-fed stock and they are good at it. When lambs are raised on grass, which is the foundation food for all animal life, they are definitely grass-fed and grass-finished.  Of course, no artificial hormones or subtherapeutic antibiotics are used.

Grass-Fed Lamb vs Grain-Fed Lamb

Grass-Fed Buffalo Information

Slanker is the best source for value pricing on grass-fed buffalo meat? Grass-fed buffalo are raised on pastures their whole lives making them grass-fed and grass-finished. During “emergency situations” (deep snow, inclement weather, droughts, etc.) they may be fed grass hay, alfalfa hay, alfalfa cubes, or clover hay (all natural green leafy plant material). Inappropriate feeds such as “starch-free” plant proteins, grains, cottonseed meal, and what-have-you are not permitted.
