For meats to qualify for Slanker's "Grass-Fed" label, the livestock that produce them can't have been fed any grain or grain-based supplements or feeds. The USDA hasn't yet decided if "grass-fed" means no grain period or some grain sometimes. So, if you are shopping for grass-fed meats you should ask questions because some folks who sell what they think is "grass-fed," is not grass-fed by any stretch.
To earn the "free-range" label, all that is required is for livestock to be raised in extra large pens or confinement houses with a door to an outside pen. Normally, "free-range" critters are fed grain and lots of it.
We have a label for critters that have been on pasture, yet they've also been supplemented with grain. They are called "Pastured." For instance, we sell chickens and turkeys that are raised on grain until they feather out, then they are placed in grass pens where they can eat grass and bugs that eat grass. Usually, while on pasture they are still fed some grain. The same thing goes for our butter. The cows that provide the whole milk for our butter are supplemented with grain, but they have full access to pasture and or hay.
For proper nutrient balance the more grass-based foods a critter eats the better it is. The reason for this is that since the beginning of time grass and the leaves of trees and bushes have been the foundation food for all living things on land and plankton and algae have been the foundation food for all things in the sea. Both grasses and algae are high in Omega-3 Fatty Acids. (More correctly it is their overall balance of fats that is critical to the health of animals and people.) Consequently critters that eat grass and/or algae are also high in Omega-3 Fatty Acids, or more appropriately they have a "perfect" balance of fatty acids that optimizes their health.
For optimal health the same thing applies to man. That is, the membranes of the cells in his bones and body tissues must be high in the Omega-3 Fatty Acids. (In other words the balance of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids in the membranes of his cells must be 1:1 for optimal body function.) Man, like all living things, is of this earth. He cannot function independently of God's plan or Nature's Way. For that reason he must eat foods that are "really natural."
Grain in abundance was created by man when he invented grain farming. The mechanization of grain farming created grain surpluses. The subsidization of grain framers increased the grain surplus even more. Consequently, grain is a cheap feed for livestock and a cheap ingredient in all too many food products. Grain is primarily a source of Omega-6 Fatty Acids -- not Omega-3 fatty acids. Yes, the bodies of all living critters need some Omega-6 Fatty Acids, but not in the quantities currently available in our modern foodstuffs. The overwhelming abundance of the fatty acids from grain has crowded out the availability of nutrients that used to come from grass. That is why so many people are sick today. The membranes of all the cells in their bodies are out of balance in their physical (fatty acid) makeup. That's why their bodies are prone to fail along the lines of genetic predispositions.
Much of the sickness in America today is due to nutrition, or the lack of it. The primary nutrient deficiency is the Omega-3 Fatty Acid.
This is why we offer meats and food products that come from livestock or other sources that are not grain-based. The critters must have grazed lush grasslands instead. Therefore Slanker's meats and other food products are good for the body.
