Grass-fed beef vs. Grain Fed beef

We raise a few steers each year. Never sure whether we should label them grass fed. They are pastured, but they do get some grain each day (usually in the morning). Other than that, they live their lives in the pasture, eating grass. This year's steers will be butchered at 10 months, when they should weigh around 1000 pounds each. Has anyone else had any experience raising cattle this way? They are definitely not relegated to a feedlot (we don't even have one).
