I was at Whole Foods the other day and picked up some grass feed beef. They have "natural" and "organic".
Their natural beef is grass fed but the last 30-90 days they are fattened with alfalfa and potatoes. (Potatoes? Would cows eat potatoes on their own if not fed to them?) Anyway, do you think there is too much drop in the beef's omega 3 fatty acid on this kind of diet? I know there is pretty significant drop if the cow if fattened by eating corn in the last 30-90 days. I'm just curious if there is much of a drop of O3's with alfalfa fed cows. Is Organic beef better than Natural beef? Preferably I would purchase a cow through cowpooling, but I don't have the freezer space right now. So I know that's the "best" option for me eventially, but for now I'm trying to decide if going Organic or Natural until I get a freezer. Any of your thoughts would be interesting to hear.
