Grain-finishing depletes majority of the Omega-3 from the fat. Kind of defeats the purpose of pastured beef. I mean does not even make sense economically. Pastured cattle take longer to mature than grain fed cattle, then you ruin the health components of pastured cattle.
That being said I of course would take grain-finished over factory farmed any day. However, I couldn't justify paying premium price for it.
Yeah I wouldn't trim the fat... It is still by far mostly good saturated fat, and that's our energy source on the PB. You can't get the most out of PB if you're eating too lean. Fearing the fat in grain finished beef is not justified, assuming the beef is still conscientiously produced and not conventionally farmed.
Just make sure to eat fish too, and take an Omega-3 supplement. Grass fed/grass finished is best. But we need Omega 6's too - it isn't like they're toxic, necessitating avoidance of all Omega-6 sources as if they were gluten. People forget that sometimes.
