Hence you have more field space?
Way to fuck up your own point.

You do not seem very intelligent so this will be my last post on this. If you want more information it is freely available online. Grass-feeding in the US is more expensive and less efficient than corn-feeding. If you wish to compare the US beef market to the UK beef market you must factor in the economic effects of subsidies, land prices, and market size.

Lol, you guys have got it all about face.
All farmers in the UK graze their cattle.

The UK is a MUCH smaller country and a much smaller beef market. In addition, the UK government does not subsidize corn so there is no economic advantage for farmers to choose corn over grass.

Most farmers already have fields, they dont need to buy them.

Farmers that grow food have fields. Cattle farmers typically do not. It is much cheaper and easier to raise cattle in a confined area and feed them corn than it is to buy and maintain huge tracts of grasslands. Grass-fed beef is available to the consumer at a higher cost than corn-fed beef because of the extra expense in producing it.

Quote
Before World War II, most Americans had never eaten corn-fed beef. Raised on pasture, cattle reared before the 1950s usually took two or three years to be ready for the slaughterhouse. Steers were fed grain only occasionally and in small quantities, and farmers tended to use corn as a supplement—not a staple—of their livestock’s diets.

But as American corn production skyrocketed in the post-War era, and as the economic boom of the 1950s prompted higher consumer demand for meat, farmers and ranchers turned to a new practice: fattening their cattle on corn. Cheaper and more efficient than grass, corn enabled cattle to be brought to market in as few as 15 months. Moreover, it allowed farmers to feed cattle in confined pens or lots, reducing ranchers’ land costs and limiting their risk of losing livestock to predators and bad weather. With cheaper feed in the equation, beef prices fell, and Americans began to purchase more and more beef, most of it corn-fed. By 1960, Americans ate a yearly average of more than 66 pounds of beef each. By 1975, that number had grown to 88.5 pounds of beef per person, per year.

In 2008, corn-fed cattle are the norm. While most cattle still begin their lives grazing on grass, the vast majority—an estimated three-quarters of them, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture—are “finished,” or fattened for market, in feedlots. There, they spend three to six months eating a diet composed of 70 to 90 percent corn.

I wonder of they have woven Kevlar in them?

I wonder if Nike's "combat" clothing is made by 7-year-olds like their shoes

Cheaper than a field?

Yes, because of economies of scale.

Corn is cheaper in the US because of government subsidies

Of course war-related trauma has always existed. The change has been cultural. In the past men were expected to "suck it up" and "be a man", meaning it was not masculine to show mental weakness. Now men can admit to having PTSD without society considering them weak or unmanly.

I haven't seen a skinny Latino man score that hard since Tbombz wore his bunny suit to the Puerto Rican Day parade.

Non stop action! Not a dull moment. I can't wait for the final score. The anticipation has sky rocketed.

I haven't seen this much action since Kai Greene went to the Farmer's Market
