What are the causes of cattle ranching?

There are many good and bad causes that people see associated with cattle ranching. Here's a lost of both: Good: - Healthy cattle (less sickness with extensive management and natural diet) - Healthy grass (good grazing practices induce vigorous grass growth) - Low labour costs (cattle are feeding themselves and not being fed) - Minimal manure management (Mother Nature takes care of that on the pastures) - Environmentally friendly, as manure and urine goes back into the soil to help plants grow, and grass makes cattle fat and happy - Range cattle produce beef that is healthy for people to eat, containing lower and healthier fat than feedlot grain-fed beef. Bad: - Overgrazing (always comes with poor grazing practices) - Deforestation (which is synonymous with what is happening in South America) - Requires fencing to keep animals in and to keep animals out of riparian areas - Higher methane production with cattle grazing on pasture versus being fed in a feedlot - Grass-fed beef can be something that people don't like, preferring grain-fed over grass-fed.
