beef: grass-fed vs. grain-fed vs. organic

neighbor | Jun 16, 2004 10:55 AM

I quit eating beef after reading Fast Food Nation a few years ago, but now my dr. says my iron is low and I'm giving in--don't have patience or strength of conviction to get it through creative vegetarianism. Still, I'd rather not get "ordinary" beef, as so horrifyingly described by Schlosser, but organic or grass fed instead. Way down this board, there's a discussion about grain-fed vs. grass-fed beef that doesn't really answer my question...which is: What is better, in terms of health (mine, the cow's and the planet's) and in terms of taste (mine)? And, Is all grass-fed beef organic? Is this going to cost me an arm and a leg, so to speak? Is it really ok to mail-order beef? That seems awfully counterintuitive, but I suspect I'll have to shop around. Thanks in advance to all.
