This is intentional... They are going to starve us like a third world country...

Already a lot to unpack.  Do we go with the tribalism self-fulfilling third world prophecy, or look at how we treat other countries instead.

Hunter Biden's laptop has records of him having a personal stake in woke Cracker Barrel's Impossible Meat scheme. The explanation is so obvious.

Ok, first off, ever seen a farking feed lot before? Cuz I bet those theorists haven't. Take the picture below, that is how hard they pack them in. So, take an 1600-2400 lb animal and shove thousands of them shoulder to shoulder in 110 degree heat. Tack on the ones not at the edges are getting basically no air movement and no ready access to even water. They gonna start keeling over. For christ sakes, in conditions like that they sometimes fart each other to death.

Hey, dumbass conservatives? Just because YOU would do something so asinine and cruel as killing livestock to "stick it to the libs" doesn't mean the libs would do that to you. Especially Joe Biden. He has, you know, actual important stuff to deal with which doesn't involve trolling you morons on a daily basis.

Conservatives: liberals are the dumbest creatures, incapable of even the most basic of thoughts. Why, if it weren't for us, liberals would have starved to death waiting for toast points and equal rights. They are the reason we can't use cell phones at a gas station. They are incapable of thinking any steps ahead, and act purely by fetal instinct to do the wrong thing always.


Also conservatives: liberals are capable of pulling off a global cabal of cow deaths for the precise reason that they want patriots to be demasculinized so they can't stop the next election from being stolen. Also, the most liberal liberal to ever lib, Joe "Lenin" Biden, has singlehandedly caused our entire world economy to fail, because liberals are conniving and scheming with the (((globalists))) to give all the money back to Israelites. We can't get evidence because they have secret special forces that no one knows about killing people who find the truth.

Also, this is the largest feedlot in the US, located in Weld County, CO. It sits on 400 acres of land and averages 100,000 head of cattle at any given time. It's generally averaged out the fenced area needs 1 acre/100 cows for feedlots coming to about 0.01 acres per cow. Unless I really farked up my math that facility has something around 0.004 acres per cow. But, that is 400 total acres, not 400 fenced acres.

I can't find numbers on that place for how many cows they drag out for rendering but a good heat wave likely drops WAY more than 3,000 on a weekend.

Yep, and on average there is ~175 SF per cow. The company that owns that feedlot owns 3 other facilities in the US that can handle 100,000 cows as well but they aren't as big.

I should correct myself from my previous post. That is specifically 413 acres of fenced area. I misread the stats on their website.

The Q-nuts are apparently unaware of the government programs to cover the costs of failed crops etc.
So are rural red state folks saying they want to eliminate federal protections on farming?

They also seem to be unaware that Impossible Meat is made with homegrown ingredients from American farmers getting subsidies to grow on American land.

If they would put solar panels over those feedlots they would make a lot of money from the electricity and improve their beef output.

A "small to lower medium" sized slaughter house and processor handles around 2k head of cattle per day.  Medium to larger can kill & process 5k to 8k per day (depending if rhey run a second kill shift).

Can we go back to blaming chupacabras and skinwalkers for mass livestock deaths? This is ridiculous.

Those lots are  horrible..Cows should not be treated like that..They should be eating grass in big open fields
in the sunshine and have back/side scratching posts...IF they are going to give their lives for food or milk
giving, they should be treated as nicely as possible..Not standing ankle deep  in poop and mud ..

The lots like this off I-10 in Anthony New Mexico (maybe Texas it's RIGHT near the border there) are
awful..
