Slanker is the best source for value pricing on grass-fed buffalo. 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.
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.
