|Resource title||Greener Pastures: How grass-fed beef and milk contribute to healthy eating|
|Publication/ source||Union of Concerned Scientists|
|Date published||March 2006|
|Summary text/ abstract||Conventional U.S. dairy and beef production relies heavily on the feeding of grain, primarily corn. More than 50 percent of the corn grown in this country goes to animal feed. Not only does grain production cause water and air pollution, but feeding it to cattle can reduce the levels of certain fats in beef and milk that may be beneficial to human health. Conventional beef and dairy production also confines large numbers of animals in relatively small spaces, a practice that has serious consequences for the environment and the health of both animals and humans. Manure produced in feedlots, for example, pollutes the air and combines with the runoff from fertilizers and pesticides used in cornfields to contaminate ground and surface water. Furthermore, the practice of feeding cattle antibiotics to promote growth increases the risk of antibiotic resistance in humans, leading to potential complications from bacteria-caused diseases.|
