You do realize that if the cows are pastured and free range, there is a 100% chance that they are eating wheat and other grains/seeds of grasses when in season, right? Advice: stop worrying about this so much.

If the price is right and the pigs are humanely raised, I'd go for it. Pigs aren't grass-eaters, I believe they just kinda eat whatever they find; it would probably be pretty tough to find affordable pork that feeds exclusively on forage.

PUFA is very low (fractions of a gm) for bison and beef regardless. It's not an efficient source of Omega 3's. It's the balance of O6/O3 that is desirable in Grass Fed meat, it's less biased toward O6. From the USDA NAL Database: Bison,... (more)

Since federal law in the US requires cows to be grass fed (pastured) at least 4 months out of the year, a company can be slick with their labeling and say "grass fed". Maybe as a community we can all start advocating for % of grass fed to be labeled. (more)
