MYTH: Feeding grain to livestock displaces commodities that could be directly used as human food.This is a common misconception throughout the consumer base - by sharing these truths, we are each doing our own little bit to preserve our industry and way of life.
FACT: Most cattle eat grass the majority of their lives. Cattle have the unique ability to convert grass people cannot eat into nutritious human food. Most grain fed to cattle is of the feed variety, not intended for human consumption. Only about 20% of total U.S. grain production is used as livestock feed.
