Interesting article. I once read a book about the importance of beef in the development of modern societies, many of which are heavily beef-oriented. It was very good, but I don't have the book anymore. It mentioned the slaughter of millions of American bison so the cattle ranchers could use the land; the impact of the beef industry on the environment; the evolution of cattle-oriented societies; and statistics on how much it costs, in terms of money and land usage, to raise one cow to slaughtering age.
