- About 53% of the English countryside is covered with grass (70% for all of the UK). Cattle in England are raised mainly on grass and enjoy the great outdoors year-round. Grass feeding is sustainable and environmentally friendly. Grass-fed beef is natural and contains 2 to 3 times more omega-3 than beef from grain-fed cattle. It far surpasses grain-fed beef as it contains considerably more antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and provides higher levels of beneficial nutrients, such as zinc, iron, phosphorous and potassium.
