If you like your beef to taste like there is a bit of liver flavor mixed in, grass fed is better.  If you like well marbled beef with a buttery taste, corn fed every time.

Re: Grass fed beef

Growing up in Grenada, one of the smells I remember was when me grand-mother used to make Beef soup or broth, we could smell that thing all over the house and yard. Gosh that ting smell  and tasted great.  It was all Grass fed beef. Now it is not the same, but Grass fed beef makes it very close.

Listen the best part of the cow to me is the tail. I won't make stew- curry Oxtail if it is not Grass Fed.  Me wife do not eat meat, but every time ah do me Oxtails she eats meat.

Probably local beef is harder to cook.... primarily because you get "Beef", not a cut of beef, but what ever they cut off, so it might be tenderloin, or shank..... you just get a lump of meet. Also unlike the UK local meet is not "hung", the animal is killed, its chopped up, and you cook it pretty soon after.  UK meat is killed and then hung in chilled conditions for around 28 days to let the meat soften and develop flavour. In other words its a controlled rot.

Re: Grass fed beef

You can get your beef any way you like it here.  If you want a particular cut or aged beef, it is available.  If I want to go pick out an individual living cow before it is butchered I can make that happen in Iowa.  I can step out on my front step and see cattle right now.  This is cattle country my limey friend and we know beef: It's what's for dinner.

This is within a mile of my front door.

Re: Grass fed beef

When it comes to beef, you usually get what you pay for.
