Which volume of dung does cattle produce before it gets slaughtered ?

Maybe people could be forced to eat their quota of dung along with the tenderloin steak ?

If you like the idea, why don't you the dung?

We pay for the land and the water when we buy steak. Yes, steak costs more than pork or chicken because of that.

Only about twice the cost of, say, pork. Not quite a reflection of the cost of production.

The price you see in the store is the reflection of the cost of production, transportation and keeping it on the shelf. This is how commodity markets work.

True of all the meats so still the much higher cost of beef production is not reflected in the price differential.

We would be far better off grazing other animals on the land.

No we would not. We would have less choice and variety. Nothing "better" about that.

Except in cost and environmental terms.

If you don't buy the beef, you don't pay the cost. I do, and I pay for it. Move on, it is not YOUR business what I eat.
