For me it's the nutrients...

2-5x more omega 3's and I try to maximize my O3 intake.
Stearic acid
2-3x more Conjugated linoleic acid
Along with higher levels of vitamins and minerals
All of this is certainly true, but you're multiplying very small amounts. So yeah, it's 5x as much Omega 3, but the overall amount is very small. Same with the vitamins and minerals. It's like 5% more.

Is it better? Absolutely. Is it something that one must break the bank on? Not really. The difference is easily made up for far less than the price difference between grass finished and grain finished.
