Quality Farming – Cattle

Torino-Lingotto Fiere

Industrial farming has reduced animals to machines and has completely deprived cattle of grazing and life in the open air.

Furthermore, to produce one kilogram of industrial beef, 36.4 kilos of carbon dioxide are released into the atmosphere and about 15,500 liters of water and 7 kilos of plant foods are consumed. However, there are farms that support local breeds and respect the environment and animal welfare. In this forum we share examples from all over the world.
