Danielle, you are absolutely right. Grass is a healthy part of a cow's diet in much the same way that fresh green are a healthy part of the human diet. By no means though does this imply that it is healthier for a human to eat a cow who eats grass than a cow who eats grain pellets or anything else. The damaging health issues that make a meat-based diet problematic in humans vary little with changes in the prey animal's diet. Cholesterol is cholesterol for example.
I'm not sure if "grass-fed" is meant to imply a health advantage or some other "benefit," but I would be highly suspicious of any marketing by the meat industry.

Thanks Decomprose, for helping to expose the truth.

A vegan diet is truly our best option when it comes to our health.
