4. There isn't enough pastureland to graze all the world's cattle

That's why we intensively farm corn and soy using fossil fuels and raise so many cattle in feedlots instead. You simply can't get enough calories per acre on pasture as you can with grains.

Look at it this way: we currently have 3X as many cattle in N. America today as bison at their pre-colonization peak.
