The benefits of organic beef

The benefits of organic beef

With September being Australian Organic Awareness month – we couldn’t think of a better time to educate you on why you on the benefits of eating certified organic beef!

We have broken the benefits down into categories below:

Health Benefits

There are a variety of health benefits of choosing organic beef over conventional beef, including:

  • Organic beef is much leaner – meaning there is less fat and fewer calories
  • It has substantially higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 has been shown to have a range of heart-healthy benefits, including reducing blood pressure, alleviating heart disease, offsetting the effects of cancer, helping brain function, and providing other benefits.
  • Has higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which like omega-3, has a variety of heart-healthy benefits, including lowering LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, and reducing cancer risk.
  • No hormones or antibiotics – our cattle are not allowed to be fed antibiotics, the bovine growth hormone (rBGH), or other artificial drugs. 

Animal Welfare

Clayton’s Organic cattle are free to roam their pasture or range, and therefore lead a much lower stress life compared to animals that are crammed onto a feedlot. Clayton’s Organic Beef eat the natural grasses, sorghum and organic corn.

Environmental Sustainability

Organic farms use less energy than conventional farms with careful ecological management including using natural ecological balances to solve pest problems. It’s estimated that organic farms use 70% less energy than industrial farms.

Manure is used as natural fertiliser and our organic farming methods aim to create a healthy balance of the soil without using chemicals to control it. We will never use synthetic pesticides and fertilisers on our feed or land. This is good for you, our cattle, and us with lower exposure for all of us to chemicals.

If you have any questions about any of the information outlined above, please get in touch with us by emailing admin@claytonsorganics.com.au or via social media @claytonsorganicbeef – we’d love to hear from you!
