Description

Beef cattle convert grass from U.S. rangelands and aftermath from crops into usable protein that otherwise would be unavailable for human consumption. They also are fed large quantities of grain in the United States. Intensive use of grain in the beef feeding industry results from the nation's large supplies and low real prices of feed grains.
