Grain Fed

Question: has anyone eaten grass-fed beef? how does it compare to to grain fed beef? i know that a majority of beef cattle eat hay and legumes for the first couple months of their lives then eventually eat more grains to get them up to weight. i am wondering how does a good grass-fed beef compare to a grain fed that is in the store--anyone tried it?

Answer: I grew up in northern Montana and all of the beef I ate was grass fed. I moved to another state where the beef is grain fed and in my opinion is not nearly as good, it tastes "greasy" to me and the flavor is flat no matter how I season it. I know that the type and quality of the grass fed to the cow will affect the flavor. You should buy some at the store and see what you think. Good luck!
