The Farm Connection
New research cited from Jo Robinson's
"Why Grassfed is Best!" shows that milk from cows raised on grass is
richer in a number of nutrients, including vitamin E and beta carotene
plus two kinds of good fat--CLA (Conjugated linoleic acid) and omega 3
When grazing animals are raised on their
natural diet of grass instead of grain, their products are lower in bad
fat and calories, but higher in the crucial good fats our bodies need.
These nutrients have been linked with a lower risk of cancer, heart
disease, obesity, diabetes, and immune disorders. Omega 3 levels
are as much as 3 times higher in pasture fed cows; while CLA levels may
be as much as 5 times higher. When our cows' milk was tested for
these nutrients, the findings held true to what was expected. What
is more, the animals are healthier and less stressed, and they are more
beneficial to the environment (as is the "permanent green" of the
Dr. Tilak Dhiman from Utah State
University estimates that you should be able to lower your risk of
cancer simply by eating: 1 oz. of cheese and 1 glass of whole milk
from grass-fed cows, plus 1 serving of grass-fed meat each day.
In addition to superior nutritional value
of the milk and meat products, our family manages the farm without the
use of synthetic hormones, pesticides, and antibiotics. It is pure
and wholesome, just like God made it!
