Grass fed cattle are never given growth hormones, grains nor antibiotics. However, this does not mean that they are 100% free from antibiotics. This is because some of these animals were exposed to factories as they were being raised. These cases are however minimum for smaller independent farms. You should, therefore, opt to get beef from a local farmer whom you are familiar with.

Furthermore, harsh climates do not allow for outdoor grazing. All these reasons contribute to the high pricing of grass-fed beef. You should, however, choose an affordable distributor.
