What’s with the bill for the beef?

Among other interesting articles in the Co-operator, “Grain fed ties grass fed in school taste test” (Jan. 22, page 19) puzzled me enough to write.

Why is a patty from grass-fed beef, even without the hamburger helpers and high-priced grain, five times the cost (US60 cents versus 12 cents) of a grain-feed beef patty?

How is the beef producer’s return related to this market condition?

Thank you for your excellent paper.
