I have lived in a exciting piece of time, being a baby boomer and growing up in the sixties. It was an era of mechanical technology in the United States of America.
Farming changed with the World and farms grew in size and versatility with displaced people moving to big towns and cities. We went from two row planters to sixteen row planters. One hundred or two hundred acres per farm to two or three thousand acres per farm, on the average. We've went from eighty bushels of corn per acre to two hundred forty bushels per acres with no irrigating needed.
The Worlds population has exploded and one of the ways to feed the population is synthetic foods.
Examples- Milk made from distilled soybeans, cheese made from soybeans and by products.
Meat production that takes grains that a human can eat will slowly go out of economical feasibility.
Instead I can someday see alternative crops produced to provide needed protein.
Example.- Variety of a Garbanzo Bean, or Russian Thistle, planted in the winter, grown and cut by early summer.
Dried in the field until the moisture content is forty percent. Put into vats to ferment with a special bacteria.
Heated to capture the alcohol for fuel.
The remaining product is put into a artificial digester and when it becomes ninety percent soluble is distributed to special silos that are one hundred feet in height.
Inside the silos are mindless mammal tissue masses that grow to fill the silos.
When the mass reaches a certain height, a door at the bottom is opened to harvest the bottom third of the mass.
The tissue mass slides to the bottom and continues to grow.
The process takes one pound of dry matter digested product to grow into five pounds of a human digestible product.
The product is ground, packaged, and sold as a protein burger.
Sound simple until some biocenologest creates a super cell gastric bacteria for better fermentation, and wipes out all mammals in the World due to inflammation of the Ileum, causing Ileus, inducing a slow and painful death.
Today that sounds like one big whopper. But in the future it might become a reality. Who knows?
