If she was trying to make an argument on why everyone should be eating meat, she should have included some examples. She could have added the health benefits of eating meat, the nutrients found in meat that plants do not provide, how meat achieves muscle growth and repair them and just add more solid information for her readers to reflect on. Just ending the article with how much she craves meat and how her life wouldn’t have been the same without it, doesn’t make her readers feel the same way. I care about this article because meat is something that my family and I eat every so often. But not many people really think where their meat is coming from.
I want to start out by saying I have seen this movie several times and it happens to be one of my favorites! Dr. Temple Grandin has opened so many doors not only in the Cattle industry but for people with Disabilities as well! She used her autism as a way to see and feel what the cattle see and feel so she could then design a system to make the butchering process less stressful on the animal. “Cattle are prey animals and my autism allows me to understand prey animals well. I can visualize the flight zones of cattle.” I believe that this quote, this fact was the key to Dr. Grandin’s success!
Clearly beef has a high value. In the beginning stages of farming, cattle was fed grass but during the start of the 1950’s the farmers started to feed the cattle corn, because that cattle would grow larger in size. Since then the popularity has grown, and now today it is very common for farmers to feed their cattle corn. Economically it is very smart, less space is needed and a profit can be made much faster. What I question though is are there human health effects to eating
Abilene was used as a compromise between the ranchers and the settlers because of the conflict with the settlers. These conflicts include the spreading of Texas fever and the destroying of the crops by the cattle during the cattle drives. If the ranchers drove their cattle to Abilene they would not be presented by the conflicts with the hostile settlers. (American West- The Cattle Industry) On occasion the settlers would kill any cattle that entered their land and would terrorize the cowboys and ranchers so that they would avoid the area. (Texas Cattle
Animal waste runoffs or feedlots are farms that specialize in cattle or hogs. These animals are stayed in a very small area of land and they are raised on hormones and grains that make them big and fat for slaughter. Feedlots help provide a lot of protein in America but feedlots contain a lot of the animals poop and other bad substances that can pollute the air and the water with their runoff. Pros of having feedlots is that they produce meat that satisfies U.S. consumers, they’re efficient, and cheap. Cons of having feedlots is that manure contains nitrogen and phosphorus; if not managed properly, they can pollute the nearby lakes,streams,rivers, or oceans, and antibiotic use increases genetic resistance to bacteria in the human body.
DNA to Dinner Plate Cattle Management Jennifer Archibald for Progressive Cattleman On a shaky foundation, volatility in the cattle market has made it difficult if not impossible for cattle producers to forecast profits or to use the trembling futures market for any sort of price protection this year. In order to squeeze margins and remain profitable requires skilled management, peak efficiency and innovation. Innovation, distinguishes a leader from a follower and Steve Scholz, of Lincoln County Feed Yard in Stapleton, Nebraska, is taking advantage of emerging technologies with the expansion of his feed yard to protect himself and his clients against market forces with the installation of the Cattle Classification and Sorting System from Performance Cattle Company.
This created vast differences in social development amongst societies. The advantages of looking at this theory towards the response of Yali’s question is because there is archeological proof that in a thriving environment, humans settled where there were fertile soil and abundance of livestock. We can attribute this to European dominance, they had favorable sources for planting and contact with animals. As they had more close contact with these animals, diseases begin to emerge slowly given them immunity to many diseases that the rest of the Earth’s population weren’t exposed to. Furthermore, as they expand in the East-west axis, they were able to cultivate some of the exported crops, exchange technology, and share ideas.
Plants may even fit some of his criteria for moral consideration but regardless animals who could be engineered artificially to have the same sentience as plants would be equally as acceptable a substitute. If the masses suddenly become vegetarian their lives are not “free of cruelty” as the meat industries would need to continue to function now with tighter margins. Switching likely to producing cheaper meat based animal feed or billions of livestock would be slaughtered needlessly
If she did not do her job humans would die of hunger. She is also important because she taught Triptolemus the art of agriculture and how to cultivate crops. She is also taken seriously as a God because her harsh treatment to any that dare question her
A meat-producing farm eats up a significant amount of earth’s resources such as water, land, and crops (stehfest page 16) Instead of wasting the worlds plants to feed the over produced animals, society should be taking the already delicious crops and feeding them directly to humans. This, in return, will increase the amount of food humans have to consume. While providing more food for the human race is a definite plus that is reason enough to convert to a vegan diet. It is not the only reason why “Why It’s green to go vegetarian” states many positive effects an omnivore has on the environment such as: “Avoid excessive CO2 production, Reduce methane/nitrous oxide production, Save large amounts of water, Avoid pollution of our streams/rivers/oceans, Reduce destruction of topsoil & tropical rainforest, Reduce destruction of wildlife habitats & endangered species, Reduce the use of antibiotics, growth promoters and chemicals” (eliot
