Point is there is a lot of land in the US that is only good for grazing. So raising meat isn't necessary a bad thing. I've seen places in KS with decent grass and bedrock 6" down. Good for beef, not so good for crops. Lot of hill side in KY that the only farm value is pasture too. Now here, in MN where I'm at, land is or can be about 50/50 tillable non tillable. Here the problem is you have to raise hay to feed through the winter. So here it's an economic question of where you are going to make your best money. Feeding cows 4 or 5 months a year or raising a cash crop. Well unless you are going to dump a lot of money into chemicals about the best you are going to do is with hay. So here it's more of each to their own.
If you look at just how many acres are no longer being farmed feeding ourselves really isn't an issue. If needed there is a lot of land that can back into production. Plus world wide there are millions of farmable land that not farmed or under farmed.
