Point one no way no how can the earths poplation be supported by plants alone . Even if you could get every one to do that. Also a good 2/3 of the
worlds poplation gets most of there protien from FISH and CHICKEN .A country like China haveing 1.6 billion people and most so poor they will never
eat beef in there life .Rely on Fish and rice and chicken as there main sorces of food.
Its nice living in a country that has made growing meat animals so
inexpensive that the averge person can afford to eat beef. But dont ever fool your self even here with only 310 million there is no way we could feed
a balanced diet without factory farms .
Ps raise cattle 1800 gallons per pound?? LOL were do people get this? caf is born say 100 pounds at birth .
ok now lets say this is a beef cow ((black anges will do (its what I raised)
in 6 months the caf is ready for auction now he weighs 350 450 pounds
then they beef him up ((ha ha) sweet feed high quilty grain by 11 months hes ready for slaughter. now weighing 900-1200 pounds .
ok theres your bulls life 11 months to go from 100 pounds at birth to say 1000 at death. now having raised cows I can tell you for a FACT 20 gallons
of water a day is twice what they need . but lets go with that number. 20 x 365 12 months = 7300 gallons total cow weighs 1000 pound that comes out
to 7.3 gallons of water per pound a little less then 1800 gallons per pound lol.
Anyway without factory farms the best we could do poplation wise is maybe 2 billion .You do understand the footprint of a veg farm is much larger
then a meat farm right? you also understand cow feed corn is also a much higher food content then corn for humans right? and again for wheat cow feed
and human wheat are very different plants.
cow feed is much easer and takes much less space to produce .If the whole US went vegen totaly we would have to plow every singial acre of growable
land there is to feed people.
the most food inficiant animal (food per pound of body weight is a Human .
chicken 1.5 pounds of feed per pound pig 4 pounds per pound cow 8 pounds per pound of meat. human well say from birth to adult weight at 18 wow
scared to total that lol but lets say human eats 50 pounds of meat a year averge pluse 300 poundas of plant 6300 pounds total human weighs say 180
comes to 35 pounds of feed per pound of human . And lets not forget the human isnt going to a slaughter house and will be alive another 40 years
