GRASS FED DEFINITION
The term ‘Grass Fed’ as stated by Grass Fed Association of South Africa: “Animal has from weaning up to its culling consumed its daily nutritional intake off grazing pastures (which includes natural and cultivated pastures). Pastures should be supplemented when nutrients are deficient, which supplementation may not contain any grain.
The Diet is derived solely from forage consisting of grass with the exception of milk consumed prior to weaning. Grass fed beef has excellent texture and flavour though can be less tender with eating quality more inconsistent (as pasture quality is affected by seasons and droughts).
