The impact of Meat industry on the World
There are three big environmental issues with the production of meat.
- Feed sourcing
- Manure processing
- Climate change
Raising meat takes vast quantities of feed.
Millions of acres have been plowed over for large, monoculture crop fields dedicated to feeding livestock.
Deforestation for agriculture is a problem in the world, but the Midwest is losing its native prairies and grasslands for farming.
Converting natural habitats to agricultural fields releases carbon pollution, contributing to climate change. These crop fields are treated with toxic chemicals and doused in fertilizers, usually in higher quantities than the plants can use, leaving all the excess to runoff into surrounding waterways. If it’s not being sprayed onto fields, manure is typically stored in open lagoons that are susceptible to overflow during flooding or leakage due to faults. This releases harmful substances like antibiotics, bacteria, pesticides, and heavy metals into the surrounding environment. As the manure decomposes it releases emissions including methane, ammonia, and carbon dioxide which further contribute to climate change. On top of all of this, livestock emit methane (burps) during digestion and further emissions are released during the processing and transportation of the animals.
The entire supply chain of the meat industry contributes to an array of environmental issues affecting climate change and our water quality
