Love this kind of 'napkin math'!

My family bought a quarter cow last January and we are almost all the way finished with it. So 1/4 cow over 8 months divided by the four people in my family equals about .78% of a cow per month per person in my family.

Multiplied out over a year, that would be ~9.4% of a cow per year, which is pretty much on par with your calculations. Nice piece!

Our cow was grass fed, grass finished on my dad's farm in upstate NY. Still a contributor to greenhouse gases etc, but better than the factory farmed versions in the grocery store and at restaurants.

Big fan of good books, funny looking animals, and great stories. Always ready for the next big thing.
