Grass is a cow’s natural food. Today the cows we eat are grown by profit-driven corporations which artificially increase the growth cycle of animals in order to achieve the largest size in the shortest possible time span. In order to take a baby calf from the birth weight of 80 pounds to 1,200 pounds in a little more than a year, it takes massive amounts of carbohydrate-rich food (corn), protein supplements, antibiotics and other drugs and growth hormones….
