Comparing 1981 to 2011, more has been done with less. The industry required 29 percent less breeding stock, 27 percent fewer cattle for slaughter and produced 15 percent less greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, 24 percent less land was required to produce the same amount of beef. For every kilogram of beef produced, 17 percent less water was required.
