No thanks.

I'd rather have a cow from a local farmer that has been raised stress free on natural foliage (yes, this is very possible and easy to do) then at the proper time can go to a butcher where the meat can be harvested.

Again, this is very possible all throughout the world. You don't have to conglomerate crops and livestock in order to feed people. What you do have to have is many small ag coops distributed around the country which feed the locals within those communities. This also cuts down on pollution, for example, why ship a cow across country to be slaughtered and then shipped back to you in boxes for consumption? Right now, there are large hog operations that have agreed to sell their hogs, which are raised here in America, to slaughter houses in China so that the meat can be processed and shipped right back to Americans for consumption. Does this make sense to anyone?
Multiple the amount of pasture it takes to raise a cow to slaughter by the number of cows consumed. Now look at available land and make your own conclusion.
