Not necessarily. The environmental defense fund has published a proposal which would allow ranchers to offset their greenhouse gas emissions via land stewardship processes. Meaning that we could keep the same level of ranching, same level of consumption, but overall lower the greenhouse gas emissions of the process. Mostly what they are advocating for is composting on ranch lands.

From the environmental defense fund :

"This project rewards ranchers for stewardship activities that help store carbon in their soils, while improving soil health and the productivity of their land "

" the research has demonstrated that a one-time application of compost can sequester almost 1,000 pounds of carbon per acre per year "

Haha, is this a real question?
If it is then I must say I don't know, I love beef too much. Even raw beef with white onion. Mmmm..... good
