Specifically, the increasing meat-consumption trend could be reversed if consumers paid the true price for meat. If these policies were adopted, small-scale animal agriculture would be a more economical model, and people would eat less meat. To the Editor: Re “ From Hoof to Dinner Table, a New Bid to Cut Emissions ” (front page, Dec. 4): There is a solution to at least some of the beef industry’s sustainability woes, and that is to raise cows in a pasture-based system.
