And the free range cow is not fed as much grain, another plus!


How would a "free range" cow get fed any grain at all? Apart from wild grain and getting into a grain farm..


Oh, well some free range cows are grain finished, that is a little grain
at the end to add fat.

I eat low carb, so a meal will consist of 2 portions of meat and a mound of veggies. Tonight: eye of chuck (my personal favorite....cheap, tender, and flavorful), mild italian sausage, and fresh green beans and mushrooms.

RE: the op....i have said several times that the key to why we eat animals is because of energy storage. Animals can get fattened up in the spring/summer, then consumed in the winter. It actually may keep them from starving to begin with (depending on reserves carried into the winter).

The point being that you can store caloric energy from your vegetable food sources in meat products. You also gain additional benefits like all the ancillary animal products (including bone meal to help with root development in new plants)

I see, I didn't know that, thanks. The cows here are a bit tough and need cooked extra long because they are tough from eating grass and climbing/jumping around peculiar parts of the mountains. Grain (rice/millet) is for people, not cows, unless they jump a fence or find a way to get to the garden through some unprotected way.

I do favor labeling. Why would a cow be labeled "free range" if it is "grain finished"?

Yum!

makes a lot of sense, it sure does....
especially comparatively speaking

Yes, my tomatoes love it, and so do my bulbs, tulips, garlic etc.

Funny thing about those labels.... USDA decides.

its like an 80 / 20 thing it can still be free range, eating some grain.
I think.

First, the misleading statements that it seems wasteful to grow grain to feed animals for the
purpose of eating the animals; and the possiblity that lab-grown meat is one solution.

Second, that somehow this meat is "artificial" or fed artificial "nutrients".



There must be a hidden agenda with this.

Start with the funding as usual...

Score one for the techno-optimists. Dutch researchers, funded by Google gazillionaire Sergey Brin, have managed to move lab meat from the test tube to a taste test—a high-proflle one in London. Two intrepid critics, a food scientist and the author of a book on food's techy future, found it, well, almost meatlike.
Discover the motive and we will discover the agenda.
 




Shifting away from grain-fed beef could feed over 350 million more people."
(assume it's true)

Perhaps a future government program ?

The 'owners' would make billions. Not to mention the enormous pilfering by contractors and bureaucrats.

Imagine the Lobbying.

Almost sounds "Monsantoish".

I'd hate to live in a recipient country


maybe the answers are hidden in the video:


They seem to be targeting a 'scientific' audience.

Watch the pictures while listening to the words.



Cassidy makes the key point that it's generally wasteful to grow grain to feed animals for the purpose of eating the animals—it makes much more sense to directly eat the grain

Brilliant deduction there Watson !
It's a Key point but at the same time it's 'only" generally wasteful


Yep, they're talking to the scientific community.

Joe Schmuk won't understand.

Theres no fat and fat adds flavor.

This is a just a stupid idea, not to mention the people who tested it said it was gross.

Yes to all above, I think you nailed it.


How appetizing!

Actually it is soooooo gross.

Now, they need patents!

Bet they are already on that one.

Oh, great point!
Thats right its just muscle tissue. Ewww.
Humans need a certain amount of "fat" in the diet, oh well
maybe they will set out to make little "fat pills" .


"fat pills" Thats a bad name it would never sell. Get bigfatfurrytexan back here
to think of a better name!

It will take some flavor enhancers to make it taste edible.
Somehow, without government/Monsanto intervention, I can't see McDonalds giving up on the meat source for their burgers.... old, past their prime, ready to die milk cows that sometimes need to be dragged through the auction ring because they are too weak to walk anymore.

I see this all the time. Particularly from you.

And I typically tell you, "But each individual handled nutrition differently, and there can never be a 'silver bullet' answer to such questions"

Yeah, something with the name "fat" likely isn't going to be a big seller in the current environment.

You could come up with a long chemical name for them, then coin a cutsey catchname based on it. Like "Yazz".

Yes, and if they are probably making "Terminator Cows" too.
Sterile, so if you do get to own one, it cant reproduce!

The truth is that this is being developed so that when the slave/worker class cannot afford real food anymore because the mega corporations are so greedy they can still eat this crap and work.

Quarter of a million, how many people would that feed for a few days?
And these folks had to hold the breath basically, and swallow.

Ah, thanks for that mate, I found the vid!
Oh my gosh, these poor tasters!
