Please note that my reviews will focus mainly on animal welfare but worker treatment and sustainability will be considered as well. I wont be rating any poultry or lamb in this series, just beef. I'll also be splitting up the products into 2 categories, grass-fed and grain finished. I want to make sure that people understand what the differences are between them so I'm including this explanation of the different practices below. Also please note that my reviews, explanations and term usage only applies to beef cattle and not dairy cows which differ greatly.
All cows raised for meat start out on pasture only consuming grass but after about one year they split up and usually take one of three very different paths.
