We bale our own hay so that we can guarantee that our beef is pure. Just because beef is grass-fed does not tell you anything about the grass that cow ate. That grass could have been treated with pesticides or herbicides. Those chemicals are then passed along to the cow and traces can be found in the beef. If we were buying hay then we wouldn't know exactly what our cows are eating. We do not use chemicals on our grass. Therefore, we can actually guarantee and back every blade of grass that our cows eat, because we grow and bale our own hay. How many ranchers do that?
