Yes, beef farms can be organic. According to the Organic Trade Association (2011), the motivation behind the organic production is to provide conditions that meet the health needs and natural behavior of the animal. Cows raised organically are given access to outdoors, fresh air, water, sunshine, grass, pasture, and are fed 100% organic vegetarian feed. The production and operations of organic livestock must also be in compliance with the USDA in order to properly certify them as “organic”.
Yes, and organic beef is also better for you. In fact, it is more important to buy organic meat than it is to buy organic fruits and vegetables. The reason for this is that it takes a lot of plant matter to produce one pound of beef, and if this plant matter was grown using lots of pesticides, the pesticides will be concentrated in the tissue of the cow. This effect is known as biomagnification, and has been studied most extensively in the case of DDT, which is a pesticide that has now been banned. However, it applies to any other pesticide as well.
