Grass-fed meat and dairy products are all the rage these days. When I worked in a health-food store, people would constantly ask if our beef, milk, and even sometimes our chicken came from grass-fed animals.

To truly understand, we must look beyond the marketing slogans and explore animal digestion, human history, and more.
