Decline in consumer meat consumption not music to ranchers’ ears

WEST TEXAS - A 14 percent decline in U.S. consumer meat consumption over the past decade has caused alarm with one Texas A&M AgriLife scientist who warns the effects could be dire for overall human health and child development - not to mention the backbone of West Texas agriculture - the cattle business.

Dr. Guoyao Wu, distinguished professor in the department of animal science at Texas A&M University, said U.S. consumers have been overwhelmed with misinformation about protein and fats in meats, which in turn has led to many consuming less meat or no meat at all.

“Obesity rates have gone up the last 20 years, while consumption of meat has declined,” Wu said. “So I don’t believe that we can blame obesity on eating meat. Rather I think excessive portion sizes and lack of exercise are more likely the causes of obesity.”

AUSTIN - The Texas Girls Coaches Association honors athletes in cross country for Academic All-State in all six conferences. Athletes must have a 94 or above grade point average for years 9-11, must be a graduating senior, and must be a team member in good standing. Member coaches nominate their senior athletes and if they meet the criteria, they are selected and honored. The head varsity cross country coach must be a member of TGCA by November 1 of the school year to be eligible to nominate athletes or support staff for Academic All-State honors.
