Jillian Fry Baltimore, Dec. 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. Many of the beef industry’s problems result from feedlots that consume tremendous amounts of grain and that pour out huge sloughs of waste. Finishing the cattle on grass is a far “greener” method.
