It depends on the size and how lean the cow or "cow" is. Assuming you are referring to an average market steer, which averages around 1250 lbs, the ideal percentage yield is less than 58%. If you get an average carcass weight of 700 lbs or more from that steer, and everyone eats an 8 oz. portion, it could feed an estimated 1400 people for certain.

As of May, 2009, the US Census Bureau estimated a global population of 6,776,836,730 with an annual growth rate of 1.188%
Over a million.
One 454 kg cow with or without a calf will consume 11 kg of feed/forage DM (dry matter) ration per day (this is equivalent to what's called the Animal Unit, AU). In context, t…his means that a cow or a bovine of any size will eat 2.5% of his/her body weight in DM ration per day.
Hay, silage, grain, etc. See related question below.
In some states the cows and calves outnumber the people and while Wisconsin is a major dairy production state the current human population of Wisconsin of over 5.6 milli…on dwarfs the cattle population of about 3.4 million head.
Plants that are considered poisonous to cattle include the following: - Water Hemlock - Rhubarb - Lupine - Low Larkspur - Oak - Tall Larkspur - Timber milk vetch - Death camas… - Greasewood - Horsebrush - Rubberweed - Sneezeweed - Broomweed - Chokecherry - Copperweed - Desert Parsley - Halogten - Loco - Milkweeds - Veratrum Other antiquality factors that must be addressed in feeding cattle include bloat, acidosis, nitrate toxicity, fescue toxicity, grass tetany, sweet clover disease. This is not really directed to the plants the cattle eat, but WHEN they eat them. To prevent bloat, let cattle out on a alfalfa or clover feild when they are not hungry. Also, make sure they have acccess to a bloat block to prevent bloating. To prevent acidosis, introduce a different ration slowly. Nitrate toxicity is prevented when cattle are supplemented with a high energy-based feed with plenty of carbohydrates and vitamin A. Fescue toxicity is only prevented if non-infected Tall Fescue varieties are seeded in along with legumes. Grass tetany can be prevented by not turning animals out onto pasture the first few weeks of initial pasture season. However if this cannot be avoided, supplementing with mineral that contains magnesium sulfate and calcium diphosphate or mixing a salt mix of 2 parts magnesium oxide and 1 part salt is even better. To prevent sweet clover disease, properly cure (or dry thoroughly) sweet clover hay or silage.

The average person consumes about 60 lbs of beef a year. By that math, it will take 360 lbs of meat. Dressing (the % an animal weight that is the bled carcass) is around… 60%. Therefore, you can figure that a 1,250 lbs steer should yield 750 lbs. However, before you go in with someone on a carcass and each taking a side, remember that you are limited on cuts. Take a look at how much ground beef you want. That will be the first thing a butcher asks you.
Farmers and ranchers often feed the cows. However cows are able to feed themselves when they're out grazing on pasture.
You certainly can feed sweet corn ("people corn") to cattle, but farmers don't because it doesn't yield nearly as much as field corn (dent corn). Most cattle feedlots operate …on a tight enough margin that they need to feed the least expensive corn they can get, and that's not as cheap as it used to be.
One 1000 lb cow with or without a calf will consume 25 lbs of feed/forage per day in dry matter (DM) ration. This is equivalent to what's called the Animal Unit (AU), since 1 …AU = 1 x 1000 lb cow with or without a calf. In context, this means that a cow or a bovine of any size will eat 2.5% of his/her body weight in DM ration per day. Actual or as-fed consumption varies with moisture content of the feed or forage.
not sure- how many burgers did you eat again?
