Green-fed beef?

What do you guys think? Seems like they eat grass, but they also eat other forage, legumes and herbs. I know we shouldn't eat legumes, but what about the cow?

Here is the website. Seems like it won't be available until November. http://joinbeyondorganics.com/

I've never seen it in print...only in a podcast. (Can't remember which one.) I was surprised to hear it but she was referencing the very end of the feeding for fattening.

There is a video of particular interest if you go to the products page. It's the green-fed standard video on the videos page. Again the question for me is still about the legumes. Everything else seems fine.

clover is a legume

http://www.extension.umn.edu/distribution/cropsystems/DC5963.html http://www.farmsciencegenetics.com/products/white_clover/

White clover is the most important pasture legume. It is a highly palatable, nutritious forage for all classes of livestock. White clover is commonly planted with orchardgrass, ryegrass or tall fescue.

I heard him on a podcast (The guy who started the company.) He was very passionate about the green fed and also the cultured dairy drink. Cows eat legumes--alfala and clover for sure. Although I think some of his schtick is hinky i much prefer it my beloved Sally Fallon saying that she believes the cows should be fed some grain before slaughter--citing biblical fatting of the calf.

I believe this is a non-issue for cows. You are thinking of the cow eating the seeds/pod but in a field, the cows wouldn't be eating the seeds/pod, but the leaves and stems of the plant.

Additionally, there are about 300 varieties of clover that live everywhere that a cow/herbivore can graze. If there is a wild herd of cattle on this planet, it is consuming clover.
