We had two grass fed steer raised for us. They are in the freezer now and our beef loving family is less than enthusiastic about eating it. The meat is strong tasting and especially nasty around the bone and fat. We have eaten grass fed beef before and found it delicious. We are wondering if the quality of pasture and hay fed would effect the meat this much? We have always used a quality pasture and feed for our animals and been very satisfied with the result. We have never raised steer.The man that we had raise them has spent his entire life around cattle. We questioned the quality of hay he used to feed the animals. We would not have even baled junk like that, but he said steer would do just fine on it. And the pasture was really rough looking mostly nasty weeds. We tend to feel junk in and junk out, so strongly suspect this is the cause of the off flavor in our beef.
