Grass is a cow’s natural diet. It’s what they are meant to consume. Grass-fed cows produce more nutritious dairy and dairy products than corn-fed cows, delivering higher quality nutrition to humans who consume it. Grazing year round on the open green pastures of New Zealand’s pristine countryside, Kura’s grass-fed cows produce milk that contains high quality protein. The specific benefits include 2-5x higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid of CLA than grain-fed cows. CLAs are a type of fat that helps with immune support and the balancing of inflammation, improved bone mass, maintenance of healthy blood sugar, reduced body fat, and maintenance of lean body mass. Grass-fed cows also produce dairy with significantly higher levels of omega-3s, higher levels of beta-carotene, which is a precursor to Vitamin A, higher levels of Vitamin E, which is an antioxidant, and more micro nutrients such as potassium, iron, zinc, phosphorous and sodium.
Because they are fed foods that are unnatural for them, grain-fed cows’ intestinal tracts become far more acidic, which favors the growth of bacteria like e-coli. They are often treated with antibiotics and hormones to treat diseases and increase their dairy supply. The resulting milk they produce is significantly less healthy than that from grass-fed cows. We are proud to bring you Kura grass fed products for these reasons!
