Grass Fed Beef is Better … for Everyone
At CGL Beef we don’t use any chemicals or vet products on our livestock. Nor do we use any herbicides or manufactured fertilisers on our pasture. While we are not certified organic we do practise organic farming methods.
Our cattle graze on pasture their entire lives. They are 100% grass fed, and they are never, ever fed grain or any growth accelerating supplements.
We do this because we believe that this is the way it should be – mimicking Mother Nature. Essentially growing cattle this is better. Better for our environment, better for our animals, better for our customers and better for us – the farmers.
Better for You
Better for the Environment
A great deal of energy is used – and greenhouse gasses produced – in growing the grains which are fed to commercial feed lot cattle operations. Of course, none of this applies to our naturally regenerating grasses. Cattle consuming natural grasses also produce far less gas (methane and carbon dioxide) than cattle which are fed grain.
Better for the Cattle
Better for the Farmer
Importantly it allows small family farming businesses like our own a place in a world where so many are disappearing from existence.
Plus it rewards us for all the hard work we put into producing organic quality cattle and practicing regenerative farming methods. You are supporting the production of a higher quality product in a way that is not detrimental to environment, animal or consumer.
