Vegan vs. Meateaters...
- It has been stated here before that the same
amount of land used to raise cattle would feed many more
humans if used for agricultural purposes.....<br>Funny,
but if most of you leave your cities and drive thru
my part of the country, there are very few cattle
farms around anymore.<br>Most farms are straight
agriculture w/ miles and miles of open field.<br>And the feds
are buying corn and soybeans alot these days to keep
the market from bottoming out and putting the farmers
out of work.<br>So here is my question....<br>Which
is better? The intensive tilling and plowing of the
land, which results in a denuded plain that most
animals cannot live off of period or a grass land for
cattle that at least supports a much more diverse
ecosystem than a plowed field can?
