that's a misconception though since feeding cattle and then eating their meat needs way more farm land than simply eating the damn plants.
So where is the misconception part?
The point of the post is that vegans are no different since they cause an equal amount of animal death. But since they need less farms AND don't eat meat, this is not true.

Where in the text do you see the phrases "no different" or "equal amount"?

The text quantifies it as being "no less" guilty, implicitly stating equal amount.

Yes, and to continue...

 

Grain/ cereal fed cattle/ meat farming is horrendously inefficient as the energy conversion is only 10%, you need to harvest and transport the grain etc and it's far more efficient to just have people eat the grain instead of feeding it to a cow since cow energy also has a 10% efficiency when turned into human energy (so there's a 1% overall efficiency from grain to human instead of 10%). As practised in the US it's also a giant sop to subsidised corn and the like, and is perfect for double dipping agricultural subsidies from growing the cereal then from farming the cattle.

 

However, if you stick a cow in a paddock and it eats grass that is fine. Not all land is suitable for grains, and where it isn't Mr Moo gives you a 10% energy conversion you wouldn't get at all otherwise.

What with the Hurricane damage, I thought I'd start the rumor we're giving Texas back to Mexico, and make them pay for the repairs (scampers for the door).
