Reasons for the decline of the cattle industry?
it had too manny cheattas
The origin of the cattle industry is the cattle trails because after the Civil War the North was lacking cattle and in the South they were all over the place so people gathered them up and took them up North to sell to make good money thus, the cattle trails and the cattle industry was created. P.S. This is what my history teacher said.
First, I don't believe the industry is in decline. Prices for most commodities are above their historical averages and production is high. Also, farmers have gotten more efficient over the years so that fewer of them are needed to produce the same crops. This may make the industry appear to be in decline.
