Another Boost For Grassfed Cattle Farming

I was reading through an NY state newspaper the other day and was interested to learn that a lot of dairy farmers are turning to beef production, letting those cattle roam free on pasture, “because of the shortage of farm labor”. Well, I guess there is no real shortage of farm labor but definitely a shortage of affordable, reliable and hassle-free farm labor. Whatever the real reason that labor is less of an option these days, it’s good news for the certified grassfed beed industry and health-conscious consumers. It translates into more good, healthy, natural beef out there on the shelves. I believe that a lot more benefits are coming to the grassfed beef industry caused by the the high cost of corn, for one.
