Permalink Grass-Fed, Antibiotic-Free Beef Offers Market Niche

Some Kansas beef producers are meeting market demand for antibiotic-free meat by tracking herd treatment, reports Midwest Messenger. The featured producers raise grass-finished cattle that graze pastures and mixed cover crops. They avoid preventative antibiotic treatments, and any cattle that require antibiotic treatment for an ailment are tagged and marketed separately. They've found that keeping a closed herd and practicing rotational grazing help to keep the herd healthy, so little treatment is required. The antibiotic-free animals fetch a market premium.
