Yaks, like all bovine are designed to eat forage; grasses, alfalfa, weeds, anything green that is not toxic to them. Grains are far too rich in energy (calorie) content. It makes them too hot (fidgety, spooky, aggressive,and energetic), rather than being naturally calm.

Grains generate very high counts of e.coli and salmonella in the gut, eventually leading to ulcers and leaky gut syndrome, allowing this high bacteria count to get into the blood stream.

7 Myths about Grilling a Steak

Myth 1:
A steak is a steak is a steak.
Not all steaks are created equal and each requires its own special way of grilling. Thin ones, like skirt and flank steaks, should be grilled quickly over a hot fire. Thick steaks, like a porterhouse or T-bone, require a two zone fire - the hot zone for searing, the medium hot zone for cooking the meat through. Tough, fibrous steaks, like flank steaks, should be scored on the top and bottom to tenderize them and thinly sliced across the grain wh... Full article >
