Dey Dey’s Best Beef Ever! Grass-fed beef is very different from the beef normally sold in American grocery stores. Besides the incomparable taste, there are significant health advantages as well. Grocery store beef comes from cows raised on feedlots, fed grains, hormones, antibiotics and things you don’t even want to know about. Grass-fed beef, on the other hand is finished on natural pasture – a diet which provides them what nature intended. www.BestBeefEver.com
