Abstract

Consumer interest in grass-fed beef is high,but adoption by farmers in the northern United States, including Iowa, has been limited. High-marbling genetics and intense pasture management are critical for successful grass-fed programs. It is hypothesized that grass-fed cattle will consistently produce high-value carcasses if excellent pasture management is combined with high-marbling genetics.
