I was talking to a friend who knows a local cattle rancher. He said the rancher told him that ALL cattle are grass-fed up until the last 3 months or so of their life, and then corn-finished. He told him that although it is a popular belief, there is no such thing as corn-fed/corn-finished beef. He said, that as ruminants, cattle must eat grass, and will die if they are corn-fed for any longer than a few months.
Wow, this was news to me. I'd always thought all industrialized beef was corn-fed/corn-finished. Can any of you verify that this is true, or show any facts that prove otherwise? Really wanna know if this is true or not. Thanks.
