Beef's environmental impact minimal according to new white paper

Posted: Updated:

The National Cattlemen's Beef Association publishes a ‘white paper’ saying American beef's environmental footprint is minimal.

The white paper addresses the misconceptions about greenhouse gases. Data shows only 3.7% of U.S. greenhouse gases come from beef cattle, versus the global number of 6%.

It also says all of U.S. ag accounts for 8.4% of U.S. greenhouse gas, while transportation makes up 28% of emissions in the U.S.

The paper goes into more detail highlighting improved efficiencies and the continuous improvement of U.S. beef production.
