Producing 100% grass-fed beef is a difficult task. There is need of huge pieces of land for grazing. This demand increases for farmers in dry areas. As grain fed cattle take a minimum of 13 months to be fit for consumption, grass-fed ones take a minimum of 20 months. All these require a farmer to have enormous land and time. Furthermore, harsh climates do not allow for outdoor grazing. These are reasons enough to justify the high prices of grass-fed beef. However, you should ensure that the supplier is affordable.
