Meat production expected to sharply decline in 2013

Posted: 06 Dec[masked]:01 AM PST


 In a new report, the USDA forecasts that production of meat will decrease substantially in 2013. They are determined to attribute this to no more than increased feed costs, but Counting Animals nerds out and finds a significant decrease in demand.

Next year Americans will eat 500 million fewer chickens and 400,000 less cows than 2006, 22 million fewer turkeys than the peak high in 2008, and 12 million fewer pigs than 2007. Whoa! That's almost double the population of humans in the USA!

So, go team animals! Apparently between celebrity vegans, Meatless Mondays, Forks Over Knives and rising prices, somehow we’re convincing people not to eat quite so freaking much meat. As much as we like to rag on those flexitarians (who decided that was a word, anyway?) they definitely do influence food trends. And veggie trends rule.
