Millington Beefalo Farm
Beefalo is a cross between domestic cows and the North American bison. A Fullblood Beefalo contains 3/8 Bison. The minimum percentage required to designate cattle as Beefalo is 3/16 or 19% Bison.
Beefalo even meets the dietary recommendations of the American Heart Association.
Buffalo meat is often favored for its leanness, but grass-fed beef has nutritional necessities like CLA and Omega-3 fats. Well, grass-fed beefalo might just be the best of both worlds: It has less fat, cholesterol and calories than regular beef or buffalo, but is higher in protien, contains more of minerals like calcium, iron and potassium, and is the only red meat shown to lower LDL.
Beefalo is the only red meat that has been shown to help lower LDL cholesterol through a university study and published in the AMA Journal. There was a significant drop of 15 points when high cholesterol men ate beefalo compared to eating beef in just 30 days. Central Washington University tested the fat in beefalo to see why there was such a dramatic drop. hey found that beefalo had only 1/3 the palmitic acid contend (known to increase LDL) that beef has.
Beefalo has up to four times less fat and six times less cholesterol than beef. It is even lower in cholesterol than most fish and much lower than chicken. Beefalo has nearly 1/2 the cholesterol level of buffalo.
Our beefalo are 100% natural with no hormones, antibiotics or steroids, and raised on an all natural, grass fed diet and grain fed once a week to bring them in.
