Beef and Dairy production is changing the weather

It's difficult for Irish farmers- they've been told to produce more dairy and more beef, they've been funded to produce animal produce. They say that Ireland's land is only good for grass. Ireland has just secured the right to sell its grass fed beef internationally as a select product. But we are sending thousands of unwanted 8 week old calves to the Netherlands in trucks with no milk to feed them. The weather in Ireland is becoming wetter and we can't put cattle out or cut grass for fodder.
Our waterways and lakes are dying from nitrogen.
We must stop promoting beef and dairy and look to new ways to produce food. Farmers must be compensated and retrained to lead a transition to plant based food production. Ireland can grow beans like fava and plenty of vegetable crops.
If you don't need land for grazing you don't need as much land...

    There's a tough situation for Irish farmers, but climate-wise, a shift is needed.

      Innovative solutions, such as plant-based and lab-grown alternatives, can offer similar nutritional benefits while reducing the environmental impact of beef & dairy production.💚

        It's imperative to reassess priorities and transition towards more sustainable and ethical agricultural practices.

          @princess_nel_268 We must work collaboratively towards this goal, promoting sustainable practices and investing in renewable energy sources.

          Appropriate measures should be taken as soon as possible before the damage is irreversible...the government should atleast try and take part in this.
