Grass fed is better for the environment, the cows and the nutritional quality of dairy- feel good about bringing nudge into your home.
Cows that graze on grass create manure on the pastures, which is a natural, sustainable fertilizer. We believe in helping our planet, and if that means grass feeding – we’re in!
A cow’s stomach is pH neutral, the perfect environment for digesting grass (2). A diet based on corn and grains can turn the cow’s stomach acidic, causing the cow distress (2). Grass feeding contributes a better digestive environment for the cow.
The primary health benefit of grass feeding is that the omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio of grass fed dairy is significantly improved compared to conventional dairy (3). This ratio promotes more health benefits from omega-3, the healthy fats!
