I saw it yesterday and wonder if they're grass fed or just organic grain fed? Thoughts??

I don't believe that "grass-fed" has a legal definition so don't trust it unless you know and trust the people who feed the cows you're going to eat.

It might be labeled "organic grass-fed" or "organic pastured," but yeah, if it only says "organic," then it's not grass-fed.

I can't find any info about that brand anywhere online, including the Costco site. However, the one brand of organic beef they do list online says pasture-raised but also "organic vegetarian feed." In my experience, organic does not mean grass-fed necessarily, and in fact I have seen little overlap.

Any beef labeled "organic" is grain fed.

If it were grass fed, you can be sure that would be on the label.
