How the world’s largest grass-fed beef business got big without grazing on a farm
From the United States to Canada, grass- and grain-fed cattle have become a staple of many American diets.
But some of the worlds largest grassfed beef producers are raising cattle on a smaller scale.
The U.S. beef industry has struggled to grow amid the countrys largest drought in decades and a looming threat of climate change.
But that hasn’t stopped some companies from raising cattle in the U.K., Canada and France, as well as Argentina, China and the Philippines.
They say the smaller-scale production gives them more control over how the animals are raised and is better for their health.
The International Beef Association estimates about 3.5 million head of cattle are raised in the United Kingdom, more than twice as many as in 2013.
The U.A.E. is home to about 4 million head, followed by France and Australia.
The IFA says about 100,000 cattle are bred in each country.
Many countries that are looking for new meat sources have started farming smaller animals, such as piglets and chickens.
In the U!
S., cattle are used to produce beef in the country that invented the meatball, but they can also be raised for meat in Mexico and parts of the United Arab Emirates.
In Japan, cattle are a key ingredient in beef steaks, but the Urawa region of Japan has been looking to use the animals for meat as well.
And while the U., Australia and Canada have all been experimenting with different methods to make beef, some of them have been experimenting more than others.
The first major grass-feeding project in Europe took place in Austria in the 1950s.
But it was a success in the 1990s when the Austrian cattle herd was raised on a small scale.
By 2010, it had doubled its size.
Now, more grass-based cattle are being raised in Europe, according to The Times.
That has allowed a growing number of European countries to grow their own beef herds.
The IFA estimates that more than 400 million head are raised worldwide each year.
