" Eliminate the mud pens and spread the cattle out across green carbon offsetting pastures. Move to cattle breeds that can tolerate a more varied diet without as much flatulence. All nicely organic, sustainable but much more expensive."

Out in west TX, you can have 1 or 2 cows per acre....and in some places, 1 cow per 2 or 3 acres since there isn't much to eat.......

There are no 10,000 acre ranches full of nice green grass six inches handle 10,000 cows a week.....

Feedlots can stuff a lot of cows quickly to add a lot of pounds - and the cows don't burn a lot of energy in the process of getting that food.

Free range chickens are a joke. What, 20 min a day of 'being out in the yard' and that makes them 'free range'. There's not enough farmland for a million roaming chickens a month....or is in 10 million a month needed. Or more.
