The average person in the U.S, (not sure about the entire world as this number differs) will eat 60lbs of beef each year. the rest is chicken, pork etc...

so, this leaves us with the probability that one Steer will feed roughly 12 people for a year.

If we can convince just 2 people each to not eat beef (worry about chickens, pork etc.. later) it would only take six of us to save one cow per year.

I know that one cow per year does not sound exactly huge, but imagine if those people we convinced were able to convince 2 more and so on and so on.

on the other hand, individually, our not eating beef saves one cow every 12 years. one.

put into perspective, we really might need to do more.
