The Power of Grass. Beef cattle were designed by nature to keep grass green and growing through proper grazing.
Feedlot finishing relies heavily on corn, a crop that requires applied fertilizers to ensure bumper harvests. In 2015, USDA Crop Report calculated a total of 88.9 Million corn acres planted in the US.
Every American raised, 100% grass fed and finished beef steer:
- Preserves 4 Acres of pasture.
- Saves 12 Tons of Topsoil from Eroding
- Prevents 108 Lbs of phosphorous and nitrogen from entering our lakes and streams
Strauss American grass fed farmers preserve over 315,000 acres of vulnerable Midwest, and we are just getting started. Help us Heal Our Land and Water.
Your purchase of just 1 LB of American-raised grass fed beef a week helps protect vulnerable pasturelands.
Grass – the unsung superhero of sustainability.
Regenerative grazing relies on nature’s fertilizer – cattle deposit nutrient-rich matter on pastures as they graze – feeding soil microbes that support earth worms and other healthy bacteria.
For every 1% increase in organic matter soil will hold an additional 20,000 gallons of water, per acre.
Healthy pastures are a smorgasbord of grass and legume varieties that grow from early spring to late fall – properly managed pastures are rich in nutrients – producing delicious, flavorful well-marbled beef.
