    Anybody have an online source? Everything I read says it's important to get grass-fed, if you want the benefits of beef for body building - CLA, etc.

    Yeah, I saw ground grass-fed ground beef at Safeway, but it was $8/lb and I'd love to find whole cuts - not ground.

    I get some from a local rancher once a year when he slaughters, but it's not enough for the two of us, by any means!!

    I've found it at my local Whole Foods but we also have a lot of farmer's markets and local places that carry it. I did a google search and here's a Yelp review with information on Tucson...

    Find a farmer/rancher nearby. A lot of them will sell to individuals. You can usually buy a whole beef, half, quarter, etc. They deliver it to the locker, you pick it up once it's processed. You'll pay a lot less this way than in a grocer. If you were nearby, we'd sell you beef.

    (That vid is excellent! I'm really just looking for the CLA and lack of hormones.)

    Thanks for the ideas, imasrxd and PaulNKS. Indeed, I get meat from a local rancher once a year. I wanted more year-round. The link provided pointed me to a MUCH better price at the University of Arizona farm, which is reasonably convenient. I'm really encouraged.

    It's just stupid that all these studies talk about the dangers of beef, but don't note that they're looking at the crap sold in grocery stores - which is like a totally different animal than what our grandparents used to eat. Paul, I wish I could drop everything and do what you do, raising so many things myself. No wonder you look so damn good!

    Perhaps on teh Iberian peninsula because the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain.

    I would start with a survey of all the grocers and butchers in your area. It was not so long ago that grass-fed beef was looked down upon. Maybe you will find someone who has not heard it is trendy.

    It shows up at Trader Joe's sometimes. There is always a grass fed beef guy at farmers markets .

    Great replies. The local university was discovered to be truly inexpensive. $4.20/lb for grass-fed, hormone and pesticide-free ground beef.

    Paleo diet rocks! It's not beef that causes cancer; it's the crap they have in grocery stores. It's cheap to produce, but hard on the environment, and useless for nutrition.
