In this thread, http://www.chowhound.com/topics/show/... Morton the Mousse draws a distinction between grain fed beef and grass fed beef that is finished with grain (or with other things, as he nicely described in the thread above).

I am interested in someone could give me some background about why ranchers would finish a grass fed cow with grain. Is it because the grain adds a different flavor dimension to the meat?
