Look up recipes for Pork Bung - pig rectum. I imagine the texture is the same, since the esophagus and the rectum perform somewhat similar functions (well, opposite functions). Thai cuisine is where you will find pork bung. I think you should... (more)

If a CAFO animal, like a cow, were to show up at their Cow-doctor, would that cow be diagnosed as sick? I hear that all CAFO cows are obese, so i guess the question is a matter of 'How sick'? What sickness plagues CAFO animals the most? What... (more)

I ask because there was a person selling what he claimed to be 100% grassfed meat and when i asked him what they ate he mentioned legumes. Are legumes bad for cows?

I'm about to get my first order of grass-fed beef. I'm getting a split-half. How long does this last most paleo families? Approximately 85lbs of beef. The ranch's website said it lasts some families a year. I'm wondering if I can even get 3 months... (more)

I eat roughly 3-4 lbs of beef/week. With the 3 of you let's say about 8 lbs/wk so maybe 10 weeks. Probably 8 weeks if you have guests over.

Does anyone know if the antibiotics usually used to treat non-organic cows are able to pass through the cow's blood-brain barrier? I am interested because if this is the case, one wouldn't need to locate an organic source of cow brain.

The prions from mad cow disease alone ought to dissuade you from eating CAFO cow brain. I really have no faith in the USDA or the factory farms themselves to completely eradicate BSE.

How many edible kcalories are in a whole cow (or similar animal), including organs, marrow, etc? What is the distribution of fat to protein? How does being grass or grain fed affect this?

ScottMGS 0 · February 26, 2011 at 1:00 AM

The calories are irrelevant but there's lots of bio-available protein, healthy saturated fats, an unknown balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and flavor.

Yes, grass fed cows produce less methane. It has something to do with their omega-3/6 ratio, so they're even trying to give cows in CAFOs fish oil. See for example... (more)

Cows aren't a significant source of PUFAs (when grain-fed) or omega-3s (even when grass-fed). Don't sweat grain-fed cow. A 2:1 O6:3 ratio is very aggressive, probably requiring a significant supplementation regimen. You could easily do 5:1 to... (more)
