McLemore Ranch Grassfed Beef

We thank you for visiting our website! Please click on the navigation links to the left to learn about why you want grassfed beef on your table and how easy it is to order from us. Our goal at McLemore Ranch is to produce the highest quality grassfed beef for our customers using only natural and sustainable agricultural practices. *Click on green links for further information.

Our cattle are raised on organically fertilized Bermuda pasture and supplemented with Coastal Bermuda and Alfalfa hay if needed in bad weather years. Cattle are never treated with hormones or antibiotics and we do not use chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. Grassfed beef is the natural choice for a healthy life. We are certified 100% grassfed by the American Grassfed Association and we are members of the Southwest Lowline Angus Breeders Association.

WHY GRASSFED BEEF IS BETTER FOR YOUR HEALTH

Grassfed beef is better for human health than grain-fed beef in ten different ways according to the most comprehensive analysis to date. The 2009 study was a joint effort between the USDA and researchers at Clemson University in South Carolina. Compared with grain-fed beef, grass-fed beef was:

1. Lower in total fat
2. Higher in beta-carotene
3. Higher in vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol)
4. Higher in the B-vitamins thiamin and riboflavin
5. Higher in the minerals calcium, magnesium, and potassium
6. Higher in total omega-3s
7. A healthier ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids (1.65 vs 4.84)
8. Higher in CLA (cis-9 trans-11), a potential cancer fighter
9. Higher in vaccenic acid (which can be transformed into CLA)
10. Lower in the saturated fats linked with heart disease
