GMO Free, Grain Fed Beef
We are proud to offer our customers the choice of a GMO free beef.
In our grain fed program, we have a select herd that is fed only non-GMO grain for those that prefer all non-GMO beef. We have determined that our cattle thrive better on GMO free grain and will eventually provide this to all our grain fed cattle. Due to the current supply and demand the transition is a gradual one.
What is a GMO?
Genetically Modified Organism
Organisms whose genetic make-up has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally. Basically, DNA from a different species is injected into the plant species. The injected species can come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals, or even humans.
With this kind of engineering the unknown consequences could cause future problems for our health.
