So, you’re thinking Texas must be the first among 10 states with the most cattle per acre? Well, guess again! While it’s true this state has the biggest number of cattle in the whole country (you’ll see just how many), it’s not in the top ten states at all if we’re talking about most cattle per acre.
While some parts of the world are researching the cow methane effect on the ozone layer, no one in America seems pretty upset about it. At least, that’s what we can conclude based on the figures. You’ll see there are millions of cows on our list, and for some more impressive data, go to 10 Largest Cattle Producing States in the US. After all, the US is a land of McDonald’s and hamburgers, isn’t it? If you were to ask anyone in the world to tell you a typical American dish, most of them would first think of a good old hamburger, not an apple pie. Italians have pasta, Germans pride with sausages, and Americans can boast about their excellent hamburgers. Naturally, a proper hamburger is made of beef, and we all know where that meat comes from.
In this research, Insider Monkey took into account the total number of cattle (including those meant for meat and milk production). Also, you’ll see which other meat is very popular among Americans. When it comes to acres, the calculations were done based on acres of land, not land and water together. To make the reading more interesting, there is the number of cattle given for every state. Spoiler alert: Florida isn’t on the list either, no matter the rumors about the cattle figures.
As you can see, the list is full of surprises. Take a look at Insider Monkey’s article about 10 states with the most cattle per acre and see if your state made the cut!
