"Big meat" was my high school nickname.


/Because my mom made me lots of corned beef sandwiches to share with my friends

The question remains, will scientists be able to beat big meat off?

Sure they're taking all the credit, but think of the poor guy out there corking all those cow assholes.

Still no love for little meat...

I would say the biggest problem is actually the corn industry. We have already proven that you could reduce methane emissions by like 85% if you fed cows seaweed instead of corn feed, and making that change would wipe out over half of the corn use. Then we could do ourselves a solid and also wipe out the HCFC industry at the same time and only allow either sugar from a beet or a cane to be legally classified as sugar in an ingredients list

Do I have to explain to fark that I was kidding? That the agri-billionares and their lobbyists have been pretending to be poor dirt farmers forever. Just like the dairy industry and the poultry industry.

Now, I'm just a poor dirt farmer from Greenwich, Connecticut, but it seems to me that these liberal coastal elites are trying to bully our little family farm that my great-grandpappy built, Archer-Daniels Midland, out of business.  Very sad.

Big business spends money to protect their business interests. News at 11.

Not like it really matters.  If the comments here on Fark through the years are any indication, the majority of omnivores are going to continue eating meat regardless of the environmental impact.

They don't feed the cows on seaweed. The seaweed is a supplement in the corn that then reduces methane emissions.

Over the course of five months last summer, Kebreab and Roque added scant amounts of seaweed to the diet of 21 beef cattle and tracked their weight gain and methane emissions. Cattle that consumed doses of about 80 grams (3 ounces) of seaweed gained as much weight as their herd mates while burping out 82 percent less methane into the atmosphere. Kebreab and Roque are building on their earlier work with dairy cattle, which was the world's first experiment reported that used seaweed in cattle.
