I don't know a single person who eat grasses fed beef just because it eats grass.
For me it's the nutrients...
2-5x more omega 3's and I try to maximize my O3 intake.
2-3x more Conjugated linoleic acid
Along with higher levels of vitamins and minerals
Costs can be lowered by going direct to a rancher and buying a quarter or even half a cow at a time. The other down side is flavor, it doesn't taste as good and it's lower fat content can make it difficult to cook with.
But if flavor is the only deciding factor then why wouldn't everyday be tacos and cake.
