Abstract

About twelve billion pounds of dressed beef and veal were produced in the United States in 1947 through the conversion of grassland crops into meat by cattle and these cattle lead all classes of American livestock in the consumption of grass and grassland crops. Grass usually represents the principal and cheapest feed for beef cattle. They utilize about one third of the permanent pastures and three fourths of the range areas. Pastures may be regarded as a costly source of feed only on highly productive farm lands, but their use in rotation with cultivated crops on such land is certain to continue and be expanded as a sound practice.
