I remember when I swam offseason with the Y back in high school days and there was this one kind of weird dad at one of the meets who walked up to me and tried to recruit me to go to Penn State, supposedly an actual recruiter. It might not have been the most tactful response but I broke out laughing, why in the hell would I want to leave SoCal for Pennsylvania?!You're going to hell for that one
BTW I'll see you there
You are so fucking useless. I showed you pictures of the BEEF farms after you claimed they're DAIRY farms.Backpedal? Have you ever seen a 1/8" thick rib eye the size of a coaster in the grocery store? Beef is not profitable for sale until it's of large adult size, moran. Holy fook.
Sure you were What exactly were you doing?
Again . .. . . The cows are raised on a pasture when they are younger (which is why I mentioned "adults", because that's all that's in that photo) and trucked and/or herded in. During the early stages they may be fed grass brought in from elsewhere. Do you think Penn State, which is a university with a mandate to serve the agriculture industry, is making this up
No- I simply asked how you know what they are, which is very different from claiming or stating what they are:You are so fucking useless. I showed you pictures of the BEEF farms after you claimed they're DAIRY farms.
Older cows tend to be larger, just like any other animal, which I can see from the photo. Beef cows spend the first 2/3s of their life on pastures WHEN THEY ARE SMALLER you fookin idiotNow suddenly you can tell the age of the cows by looking at the picture.
This is thread is proof positive that your accusations of me "backpedaling" or resorting "semantics" is nothing more than you being a complete idiot who can't read and a pathological liar. Me clarifying your confusion is not backpedaling. Your "proof" is nothing but a single photo that tells no story about how the animals were raised up until that point in their life, where the industry standard is to raise them in other areas and truck or herd them in. That is the standard, not the norm. Cows raised in feedlot conditions from birth will have far too much fat, which is why the standard is to raise them in pasture for the first 2/3s of their life, like the academic link I posted from Penn State, a university that does research and outreach to farmers, shows you.Dishonest backpedaling semantics. Zero integrity looser. Bye.
Yep, in dry years they have to bring in grass/hay from elsewhere which can be $$$. This is the standard for how beef is raised, not the niche. @plasticbertrand has no clue what he is talking about.I knew a guy who ran 2000 head of beef cattle out of a ranch in Los Alamos and leased land up by Orcutt. After a couple of years he'd sell 'em and they would go to a feedlot (maybe Harris, I dunno) for a couple months of fattening before they went to the slaughterhouse. Made a nice living in wet years, not so much in dry. He got old and retired, his kids are now out of the cattle biz and grow Syrah grapes.
Nearly all grain and feed farmers at least rotate with soy, which pulls Nitrogen from the atmosphere and puts it back in the soil. At one time it was common to rotate cattle, but not sure how common that is nowadays.I think it's the rotation that create the positive effect on the environment.
rotate where the cattle feeds is where the regeneration comes from.Nearly all grain and feed farmers at least rotate with soy, which pulls Nitrogen from the atmosphere and puts it back in the soil. At one time it was common to rotate cattle, but not sure how common that is nowadays.
You just keep demonstrating that you don't get itI get my grass-fed beef every two months and I eat a couple of times a week.
But I could shift over to plants and I wouldn't really notice.
Also, the guys fearing the rise of the bugman over lord could just get a few chicken.
