SPRING
CROSSING
LAMB

Spring Crossing Australian lamb is an all-natural, free range product, produced without hormone growth promotants1 and artificial additives.

Australian ranchers producing lambs for Spring Crossing ensure they are raised ethically, focusing on quality and care. Australia has one of the highest standards of animal health and welfare globally. Strict animal health and welfare standards are developed and reviewed with government and welfare groups and enforced by legislation to ensure the Australian lamb you purchase is safely, responsibly and ethically produced.

The lambs may have been treated with antibiotics if they become sick, with our industry’s animal welfare practices/standards we’re obligated to treat sick animals. Given these lambs are free range, the incidence of illness is very low, hence antibiotic usage is very low. There is very little crossover between antibiotics used for lambs and humans, as in, lambs are mostly treated with a different type to humans.

When it comes to choosing healthy proteins, lean Spring Crossing Australian lamb is a delicious and healthy choice for mixing up your high quality protein needs. With Australian lambs raised predominately on pasture, Australian lamb products are lean and naturally contain 13 essential nutrients required for good health, including Iron, Zinc, Omega-3 and B vitamins.

Australian lamb ranchers are committed to best practice environmental care and to delivering sustainability initiatives designed to further reduce the impact of farming on the environment. A recent study2 commissioned and funded by Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) found that transportation by ship is very efficient. In fact food miles are not an accurate or relevant indicator of environmental impact. Transporting lamb from Australia to the US contributes less than 5% of greenhouse gas emissions, water and land impacts.

BEEF

Your family deserves the best. When it comes to beef, make sure it’s 100% free-range grassfed from Spring Crossing Cattle Company — superior nutrition, highest safety standards, and humane, sustainable farming.

More Vitamin A – Grassfed beef contains up to ten times the amount of Beta-Carotene as grain-fed cattle, which is converted into vitamin A, also known as retinol, in the body. Vitamin A is an essential nutrient, as it helps promote bone growth, normal vision, cell division, production of white blood cells, and reproduction. Vitamin A also creates a barrier in the body, guarding against viral and bacterial infections.

More Vitamin E – Grain-fed beef contains three times less vitamin E than grassfed beef. Vitamin E is vital to a healthy body, as it is acts as a powerful antioxidant that can help to delay or even prevent coronary heart disease, protect against the development of cancer, and block carcinogens from forming in the stomach. Vitamin E has also been known to reduce the risk of cataract development and improve visual clarity.

Omega-6 and Omega-3 – Grassfed beef provides the right balance of essential fatty acids likes Omega-6 and Omega-3. A proper ratio in the diet is important, as it can help to prevent and treat type 2 diabetes, cancer, arthritis, coronary heart disease, autoimmune diseases, and hypertension. Grain-fed cattle generally have much lower levels of Omega-3 (the healthy fat, found in salmon) and higher levels of Omega-6. When cattle consume grass, the levels of Omega-3 in their beef can increase as much as 60%.

More CLA – CLA, or conjugated linoleic acid, is a fatty acid which reduces the risk of diabetes, atherosclerosis, and carcinogenesis. Grassfed beef has two to three times more CLAs than grain-fed beef. Beef from Spring Crossing Cattle provides an abundance of healthy fats like omega 3s and CLA.

More Dietary Protein – Studies have shown that when people consume more lean beef, they can lower their total triglycerides, LDL cholesterol, and VLDL cholesterol, while at same time increasing the more beneficial type of cholesterol, HDL. Lean proteins can also help reduce weight, lower blood pressure, improve glycemic control and insulin sensitivity. Eating grassfed beef multiplies all of these benefits because it contains about 1.5 times more protein than grain-fed alternatives and is much leaner.

In addition to providing all of these nutritional benefits, our grassfed beef cuts are trimmed to ensure superior quality before they are placed in vacuum sealed bags.

Your family deserves the best. When it comes to beef, make sure it’s 100% free-range grassfed from Spring Crossing Cattle Company — superior nutrition, highest safety standards, and humane, sustainable farming.
