I had to respond to that thread and this nonbike messageboard should be the place. Cows are actually very beneficial to the environment. I know that may seem to be contradictory to what most people have heard but it's true.Rather than me trying to explain it please go to this URL and read this short article for your own enlightenment.www.hollowtop.com/cls_html/thestore/AllanSavory.htm Or for more info do a search for Allan Savory or Holistic Resource Management.This is powerfull stuff and I hope more people can be exposed to it and learn the truth.

Please be sure to click on "The American Sahara" near the bottom of the article. This is very informative and should be read by all eco-conscious people.

The argument put forth there is mostly that cows, as we currently manage them, are good for rangeland ecosystems. This is not to say, broadly, that cows are good for the environment. Take, for example, large dairy farms where thousands of cows release tens of tons of phosphates into the water supply, effectively poisoning the water for many other animals. Cows certainly have their place in the environment, but they are not always good for it.

Actually, the argument put forth there is mostly that cows,as we COULD manage them, are good for rangeland.And I will say broadly that cows can be good for the environment. I am not saying that factory farms are. Dairies that use grass(grazing)to produce milk where the cows are not confined and proper grass management is followed are healthy and sustainable.Also milk produced from fresh green grass is better for you-it contains high levels of CLA,an anticarcinogenic antioxident.Cattle(or any ruminent) fattened on grass for slaughter also have high levels of Omega 3(and more CLA)in their meat than grain finished.

And Western Europe I suppose, can we be so damn picky about the food we eat. Something is going to kill me, and I could only be so lucky to go down eating a filet mignon.
