Limiting Beef Consumption Clapback: If farmers are sidelined, the world won’t be fed
As world leaders continue their push to combat climate change, they have put the beef industry right in the crosshairs, urging Western nations to limit beef consumption.
Representative Mike Flood’s recent resolution pushing back on that idea reminds the world that farmers and ranchers are the world’s best environmentalists.
“The true environmentalists are the farmers and ranchers that live and work in places like Nebraska in the middle of our country. We have more invested in the future health of the lands that we work in and the ecosystem that we contribute to. But one of the things that I think has gone completely off the rails is this idea that if we get rid of beef, somehow the world’s going to be better off, and the reality is that there are a lot of places in this world that won’t be fed if beef producers are on the sidelines.”
Representative Flood is expecting the Senate to enter a similar solution but has yet to file. He says his resolution is already seeing a lot of support in the House.
