Amen, amen!!! Great article explaining “why” we need animal agriculture to offer the most productive use of our forages. Grass grows to be consumed and converted for human consumption.
“Cows efficiently convert grass and hay to people food. And over a cow’s lifespan it will eat far more grass and hay than grain. Big deal you say. However, grass and hay are perennial plants that cover the land with a permanent layer of vegetation, a “conservation blanket” if you will. This prevents soil erosion during rains and windstorms, and provides habitat for wildlife...Extensive beef production in ranch country is an agricultural system that promotes animal welfare, landscape conservation and wildlife preservation.”
