MontanaBirdKiller writted: I've had both grass fed and grain fed Buffalo. Young grain fed is by far the best. Still, I have to say, grain fed young beef is much better.
This post got me to thinking. Do you also see a difference in the meat texture of say a 8-9 weight steer versus the same type that would finish out 4-5 hundred pounds heavier? I've only tried this one time and to me the meat had a different texture to it. It wasn't as marbled but it was tender. Also seemed like the meat fibers themselves were shorter. Anyone else notice anything like this on younger - not completely finished - animals?
