My query is why a cow producing milk (a product consumed for both its nutritional value and taste) for several years before being consumed in an 'alternative ' format, has the same carbon footprint as a like animal that just stands around for 6 months to 2 years to come to the same demise?
Patrick says:But, when you eat beef, you have no differentiation between meat from beef cattle or meat from dairy cattle in the shop when you buy your steak.
up until the 'milk crisis' (overproduction of milk in the EU causing a dramatic drop in price of milk to farmers), the main source of Swedish beef in shops was from dairy cows.
Still though, the idea of burgers being better for the environment than a steak...
