The primary health benefit is that the omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio of grass fed milk is significantly improved (up to 300%) in comparison to that of non-grass fed milk. Less omega-6, and more omega-3 means more health benefits from omega-3, the healthy fats! Considering the omega-3 content of grass fed milk has been shown to be 3x that found in milk from cows fed a diet comprised primarily of corn silage, you can feel good knowing our milk can contribute to a healthier you.
Grass feeding practices have also been shown to increase the content of CLA in milk by over 5x, when compared with a total mixed ration diet. CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is a naturally occurring fat in dairy and some meat products. Surveys conducted show its health promoting effects in obesity, cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, diabetes, insulin resistance, inflammation, and some types of cancer.
