What?

It’s a green COW PIG LAMBCHOP BURGER SAUSAGE CHICKEN

Waht Waht>?

ARE YOU A LIVESTOCK FARMER OR RETAILER – are you ready to ask the ‘regulators – whoever they are’ for another income – still farm what you’re farming but farm this as well so when your FEED PRICES RISE you’re still farming proteins in water using a TINY PERCENTAGE of the land you’re already using & your land gets a rest? This way FOOD FARMERS and FOOD RETAILERS have some quality FOOD to provide the locals if livestock feed gets a bit erratic. Gotta convince at least one of the old meat lords in @ukhouseoflords whose family have been beef importers from Argentina for hundred of years & never paid tax (treasure islands) -  he even laughed at the Queen having to pay tax – anyway someone must know him – over to the farmers @nfutweets @nfupolitical @ukhouseoflords @houseofcommons What do you think Elizabeth? @britishmonarchy

How about that idea?

Have you heard about founding farmers?  That’s another % of food income for farmers not supermarkets & creates jobs – Have you heard that UK farmers could supply enough waste straw to make 500,000 3 bed homes every year that use 90% less frak gas – more jobs homes and common sense in the UK – common sense in the uk – can’t be having that? – Never mind tell you later – this is way more important – that’s if you are involved in the existing world of protein farming and political punch ups in the crumbling den of parliamental.

Lets phone old McProtein the new age farmer

There’s a farm in Geneva – lets call it old McProtein – it’s a blue-algae farm that makes MUCH better proteins and nutrients than any of us can get from ‘supermarkets’ but the inside of our heads have to be ready to change a little – away from the old norm a bit – only a bit is all that’s needed while you consider – we’ve got to be able to communicate the benefits of COMBINING this plant in our diets to both existing MEAT FARMERS and CONSUMERS and REGULATORS otherwise there’s gonna be public relations war and powerful landowners & food processors are gonna get the wrong end of the protein stick & get the big crumbling parliamental guns out instead of cooling down their assumptions & seriously running side by side farming operation farming both?

A side by side farming operation farming both?

Yes – the benefits are that you have proteins to sell close to market if feed prices go though the roof when we get bad weather or even if animal feed becomes ungrowabubble due to changes in climate & difficulties getting animal feed – like California – San Paulo – Middle East.

This is a very high quality protein farm that does not eat grass.

The numbers below speak for themselves.

The main function of livestock products in human nutrition is to provide a source of protein and energy. The total average protein consumption globally is 75.3g/person/day of which 24.3 g is animal protein (FAO, 2006).

In the industrialized countries the average protein consumption is 106.4 g/person/day of which 56.1 g comes from animal products.

YEP – if all fails you could grow the 24g or 56g over the summer ready for winter when you’re feeding animals in barns with feed if you’ve got it?

Or side by side all year – heck lets think about that Mr Farmer?

Biologically it is not necessary to circulate plant protein through animals before human consumption. All essential amino acids for human nutrition could be retrieved directly from plants by combining cereals and pulses. Source.

BANG

 

Sorry it was a bit technical that wasnt’ it.

 

The bit that’s important though – to your families life and income …

 

Biologically it is not necessary to circulate plant protein through animals before human consumption.

 

If you’re not a supplier to McDONNYALDS TESCO or WALLMART or ASDA then you’ll not be familiar with moving aphalfa grass to china to feed cows f burgers from California to move beef back for people to eat.

California (currently running out of water to feed grass to send to China) – so what are those cows going to eat in a year if Californai runs out of grass feed to send?

Are you a livestock farmer – does that one resonate?

WhHHATT>?

California (currently running out of water to grow alfalfa to send to China as animal feed so they can send beef back)

That’s not stupid – that’s the new normal. Mushrooms fly & get over 7,400 airmiles you know?

Lets just look at this green stuff again?

It’s a green COW PIG LAMBCHOP – but you don’t need to chase it round a field over winter feed it or get the vet out. And yes, you can still be a sheep farmer or a beef farmer.

Are you a livestock farmer – does that one resonate?

A side by side farming operation farming both proteins – lets be civilised?

The critcal thing to understand is that Wallmart (world largest retailer) have already reported that 95% of Wallmarts fresh food is at risk from climate change.

All together now…

Biologically it is not necessary to circulate plant protein through animals before human consumption.

Long before we were born this algae plant material had already evolved to provide us substances of high biological value, such as polyunsaturated fatty acids, amino acids (proteins), pigments, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

All essential amino acids for human nutrition could be retrieved directly from plants by combining cereals and pulses.

So yep – #smart towns and cities could adapt their current crop plans?

This study compared environmental impacts of producing different protein sources for human nutrition, including crops, livestock products,

Spirulina, mycoproteinbased Quorn and cultured meat. The results showed that Spirulina and cultured meat have the lowest land use per unit of protein and unit of human digestible energy. Crops have the lowest energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per unit of energy and protein. The energy use in cultured meat production is at the same level with other livestock products, whereas GHG emissions are lower.
It is concluded that the overall impacts of replacing (OR GROWING SIDE BY SIDE) livestock products with crops, Spirulina, Quorn and cultured meat would be beneficial for the environment and would potentially improve food security as less land is needed for producing the same amount of protein and energy.
Key words: in vitro meat, Quorn, land use, energy use, greenhouse gas emissions

EGG & FAT replacer.

Remember – if you have a bad year & no animal feed for chickens or livestock you could have a Whole algal flour year? Are you with it yet?

Food formulators can now use algae to address some key challenges and make foods and beverages healthier. Whole algal flour, for instance, is a fat and egg replacer, thanks to algae’s high lipid content. http://www.algaeindustrymagazine.com/look-algae-based-food-landscape-2015/

CHOCOLATE

AlgaVia flour, for instance, the company made a chocolate milk that is 40% lower in total fat, 66% lower in saturated fat, and 5% lower in calories—all “while maintaining an indulgent chocolate taste you would get from a full-fat product,” http://www.algaeindustrymagazine.com/look-algae-based-food-landscape-2015/

Spirulina – Vegetable Protein that doesn’t go MOO BAAH OINK.

The material is a nutritional plant without equivalent. usually developed and consumed as an alimentary complement, the ‘blue algae’ – as it was anciently named – is industrially cultivated in many countries where agriculture is difficult and fertile lands are scarce. the cyanobacteria are composed of arthrospira bacteria and are one of the only vegetable protein source containing all amino acids as well as numerous vitamins and antioxidants. http://www.designboom.com/architecture/bureau-a-spirulina-fountain-garden-folly-parc-des-evaux-confignon-geneva-01-16-2015/

A key benefit of spirulina is its high protein content. While accessing good quality protein is not hard for those who live in the west, (unless drought hits you – California or San Paulo Or Jerusalem Saudi Arabia) the same cannot be said for those living in poverty in developing countries. In her paper on food security in the context of a growing demand for protein, Dr Hanna Tuomisto calculates that the algae (along with ‘in vitro’ meat) has the lowest land use per unit of protein and unit of human digestible energy. In other words, it offers the potential to improve food security while also benefitting the environment by requiring less land to produce the same amount of protein and energy as livestock.

So how about becoming a McProtein farmer?

 

Could we also combine this with Foodforests by retroftting old Motorways?

 

If you go back to the 60′s / 70′s we didn’t have to make these kind of decisions about our food chain – but we still have time to evolve and adapt… :) :) :)

god bless.

  1. Jeez … I guess this article is about algae but it’s impossible to know for sure.

    The same photo repeated five times.

    “Sorry it was a bit technical that wasnt’ it.”

    No, it is utterly incoherent. Please don’t drink and type.
