A local VONS in San Diego, California has a brand called Open Nature. On all of their packages, it says vegetarian fed. I did some research and found this site. Under the Angus Beef category, it says it is raised on vegetables - including grains???? What does vegetarian fed mean then??

Well, for starters it's a polite way of saying they aren't being fed chicken poop which is a widely used livestock feed ingredient. I think in the past meat scaps were also used but that may be forbidden now due to mad cow concerns. I read quite an article within the past 4 months that was very gushy and happy about feeding out the chicken poop to their beef, but somehow the article failed to enthrall me. :-))
