Strangely enough, nobody has had the 'balls' to actually say that we are breeding ourselves off the face of the planet! Most likely a product of the 'welfare state' type of situation most parts of the Western world are now accustomed to.
I thought Covid-19 was going to kick us into a new gear, but governments made the entrepreneur suffer the fall on their sword, at the expense of the public.
Big business now has a stronger stranglehold on the general populace, taking into consideration the internet and home deliveries, just to mention the few.
The beef/milk cattle issue is just a 'smoke-screen' to bigger issues on the agenda. JMO

California, A2 milk, maybe he has a niche product here. Well done!
Love it when farmers play into the hands of these internet health/healthcare specialists.

Check out Kamal Harris' viewpoint on beef consumption on the Fox News website.  Just read it.

Unfortunately, we are rapidly moving away from a somewhat free capitalistic way of life to a more socialistic brand totally controlled by the east/west coast elite.  Every day some company introduces another meatless "burger".  Too often some state introduces a proposal to limit or greatly influence livestock production, especially beef.  Some government agency advocates Meatless Mondays all the time.  I have heard way too many celebrity types talk about giving up beef to save the planet.  It's coming.  Livestock producers, especially cattlemen, need to step up to the plate.  Do you suppose the New York Times would print an article contradicting the imminent demise of the planet resulting from beef production?  I would bet not.

on a lighter note-- maybe the NCBA, several state cattle associations, etc. need to buy ad space in this magazine-- I bet they wouldn't turn down the ad income....
Brilliant idea!

ok,  I'll bite.... I looked this magazine up, but did not find any subscription levels-- how popular of a magazine is this?  I never heard of it until now-- but I live in the "fly over" zone of deplorables... so maybe it is an uppity east/west coast mag.   So in my mind we are still a free, capitalistic country with supply and demand.  We can take the risk to open a business (meat production) and sell our products.  Are they really going to be able to ban- limit beef consumption (in this case) with this plan-- will this plan pass to law?  how are they going to enforce this law?  Just shut everything down from the cow/calf, feeder, feedlot, processing plant, wholesaler, store......   Where in the hell is this country going????

As usual organizations that are against animal agriculture continue to lie,lie,lie to spread their narrative that livestock is so terrible.

Back when the covid started and business shut down and there were many companies that allowed employees that could to work remotely from home.  It was interesting that they showed pictures of several cities before the lockdown and then again just a few week later.  It was amazing how much clearer the air was.

Agriculture as a whole compared to other industries produces about 9% of the green house gasses.  But within that 9%, livestock account for about 3%.

Here is a line to an article from Texas A&M https://agrilifeextension.tamu.edu/library/ranching/the-role-of-animal-agriculture-on-greenhouse-gas-emissions/#:~:text=The%20most%20important%20GHGs%20from%20animal%20agriculture%20are%20methane%20and,more%20heat%20than%20carbon%20dioxide.
