2021-02-05 Corn Fed Cows Are 3 to 40% Efficient

Your praise for the meat industry means *nothing* if the Earth can’t feed the people. It’s not about health, it’s about enough food to feed everyone. I suppose you will praise the meat industry when they have to start slaughtering and selling human meat! Otherwise there will be mass starvation.

You’re nothing but a shill for the cattle and dairy industry.

First off, the Sci Am corn article you cited is 8 years old and says nothing about the crisis in climate change.

The flex fuel mandate is a terrible fiasco and should be discontinued. Recent reevaluation says that ethanol production is less efficient than using plain petroleum.

You didn’t read the article I linked. This Sci Am article is saying exactly the same thing.


A quote:
<< For corn-fed animals, the efficiency of converting grain to meat and dairy calories ranges from roughly 3 percent to 40 percent, depending on the animal production system in question. What this all means is that little of the corn crop actually ends up feeding American people. It’s just math. >>

Nothing is being done but a bunch of arguing among people with vested interests while the Earth is going to hell. I’m glad I won’t have to live through the disastrous results.
