I've never knowingly eaten a grassfed steak but the way some speak of them I figure you need to add a little MSG .

:lol: My BIL raised organic grass fed beef in Kansas. He sold his meat by the pound. He was in some kind of coop. He only sold his hamburg & pot roasts. He saved all the steaks for himself because they were un-edible as a normal steak. They would make like steak tacos and stuff like that with them.
I eat corn fed beef and enjoy every bite.
Just had a customer/neighbor drive in about an hour ago. Raved about his beef & put an order in for a 1/2 next fall. :banana:

I am making a completely serious offer here. The first 2 people who pm me and honestly want to try a good grass fed steak, I will send them each a vacuum packed 2 pack of t-bones shipped in dry ice for them to try. It will be the last steer I had butchered a few months ago. Concieved, born and raised on my place with nothing but my grass and water, only time I touched him was to castrate him and when I slapped him on the azz to get him to hop in the trailer. I'm serious.

Your grass fed beef isn't the same as ours. I ate some grass fed beef at Artesianspringsfarm's that was delicious. Not a lot of fat but enough. It didn't have the gamey taste like the grass fed stuff from here and Florida. That's a great offer you made.

I'm surprised that someone else hasn't jumped on that deal. I'm hoping someone that hasn't had a good piece of grass fed beef will take you up on your offer. I know someone that will trade some shrimp for beef before long.

I'm not sure why it even bothers me, but I get sick of hearing about how you need to feed corn/grain to have good tasting beef. It's just not true and I'm willing to put my money where my mouth is.

I am old school. I will stick to my own home grown and corn fed.
I believe there are good grass fed beef out there, just MOST is not. I"ve said it many times, it takes extremely good management to raise edible grass fed beef, so congrats to you if you are one of them.

I tried one guys GFB .. he raised shorthorns so i figured it'd be good. He butchered them WAY to early. That meat all tasted like wild game. It was pretty gross. He even told me.. "it's a little different, but its good for you" ehhh... no.

then another guy i know raises belties.. they don't take anything to finish and that stuff was delicious.

tried a few others and it wasn't bad and wasn't anything to rave about.
