I found grass fed/finishd beef in target for $7, which is closer and cheaper than whole foods.
I called the company and they said they supplement the cows with apple cider vinegar and molasses licks. The ACV is fine, U.S wellness does the same thing, but what about the molasses licks? It's essentially pure sugar, and I imagine it might have some of the same detrimental effects to the fat/meat as grains do.
What do you think? Thanks!

Salt licks are for mineral content. The molasses makes it slightly more palatable.
And when it comes to grain in a cow's diet, it's all fine until it becomes a significant portion of the ration, that only occurs in feedlot environments. A molasses salt lick is nowhere near a significant portion of a cow's diet.

molasses is awesome! i have been using blackstrap molasses for health reasons and it's amazing. good to know it's being used for my meat supply.
