A federal Republic gathering 50 states, the United States is the world leader in beef meat. Livestock farming for meat is developed both in the Western region specialised in reproduction, and in the great plains (Iowa, Nebraska, North Texas, Colorado) where fattening factories known as « feedlots» are on the increase. However, livestock farming has a dramatic ecological impact and its influence on global warming is higher than the transportation sector. This activity accounts for 65 % of the emissions of azote hemioxyde, a gas whose global warming potential is 296 times higher than CO2, essentially generated by manure. On top of that the raise of the living standard is accompanied by a higher consumption of meat and dairy products. By 2050 the world production of meat should have more than doubled, from 229 to 465 million tons.
