The next Cuban gristle crisis: US Navy warship powered by beef fat

Breen Whitman

The average subcutaneous (under skin) fat depth for a US grain fed feedlot animal is 3 inches.

Contrast this with paddock roaming grass fed beef such as in New zealand which is 1/2 inch.

In fact the lean beef issue is so great for the US they import lean beef from countries like NZ to mix with their excess beef fat for the beef burger industry which is monstrous in the US.

So I would be in intrested to see how this could disrupt said beef burger industry.
