Bovine-Induced Poverty

Bovine-Induced Poverty

 In Blog

Just published today, a lengthy article about how livestock production, poverty, hunger, environmental degradation, and climate change intersect in Africa. Last month, Part I of this article introduced the term “boverty”:

Boverty was defined in the previous post as the human impact of too many bovines overwhelming the local biosphere’s ability to feed them … the bovines are usually cattle and more than a few African countries have boverty induced poverty. Their livestock is a millstone around their necks and helping to keep them poor.

This piece also has some great stuff on Polyface farm—made famous by Michael Pollan—and how its meat and egg yields compare to vegan agriculture.

I can’t imagine a more thorough introduction to the subject. (Via Singer.) Link.
