Cattle fed a diet of a mixture of grain and grass use twice as much energy per kilocalorie of protein than grass-fed beef (Pimentel, ). Production of grain-fed beef u gallons of water per kilogram of food, which is 50 times greater than the water required to produce soybeans (Segelken ).

This study compared the environmental impact of conventional, natural and grass-fed beef production systems. A deterministic model based on the metabolism and nutrient requirements of the beef population was used to quantify resource inputs and waste outputs per × 10 9 kg of hot carcass weight beef in conventional (CON), natural (NAT) and grass-fed (GFD) production Cited by: STATE-OF-THE-ART REVIEW OF BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES FOR AGRICULTURAL NONPOINT SOURCE CONTROL I.

Unit 8 // Section 2. Water covers about three-quarters of Earth’s surface and is a necessary element for life.

During their constant cycling between land, the oceans, and the atmosphere, water molecules pass repeatedly through solid, liquid, and gaseous phases (ice, liquid water, and water vapor), but the total supply remains fairly constant.

3 Animal Agriculture 1. INTRODUCTION. Animal products are a primary source of protein and key nutrients in American diets (Bentley, ).In addition, livestock and poultry production account for approximately $ billion per year in agricultural cash receipts (USDA-ERS, a).In the United States, most food animal production (meat, fish, milk, and eggs) is accomplished through an intensive.

The goal of this study was to evaluate the effect of perennial forage-based cattle production systems on land-use and water quality in Southeastern Minnesota.

A scenario was developed where a fraction of the land area currently used for corn and soybean production was changed into use for pasture and by: 1. Pastured cattle are also friendlier to water resources, as we saw by the comparison in water use between mostly pastured cattle in Australia and mostly grain-fed cattle in the US.

Further, it’s important to consider the other environmental hazards of feedlots, including pollution from manure, antibiotics, and pesticides. Environmental Issues Affecting Water Quality Agricultural production requires a large amount of water.

In North America, 80% of the water used is for irrigation. Irrigation methods differ according to each growing region and the amount of rainfall the area receives.

In the. Gross annual economic impacts in ranged from $80, to $, Privately owned custom feedyards are being built in a response to increased education and public funds for improving water quality with reduced manure runoff.

High customer turnout has been common in locations where produce is already available.More than 36 percent of the fed beef produced annually in the United States comes from a concentration of feedlot operations from Southwest Kansas through the Texas High Plains.
