Embed:Humane label grass fed

From JFA Wiki

In 2016 the USDA stopped regulating the grass fed label,[1] allowing producers to use the label no matter how much or little grass was used in feeding. Given that "most all beef cattle spend at least a portion of their lives on grass,"[2], the notion that the grass-fed claim confers something special is questionable.
