Cant ever see the Tesco's and Dunne's and Aldi's of this world, ever paying enoughg money per unit of output of any farm product, to ever justify bringing grass into cattle when they can go get it for themselves.
There is a billion and one ways to increase cost on farm, through fixed cost investment, buildings, machinery etc,.
At the point where the farmer sells his product, he is generally faced with buyers who do not compete with each other
You get the same LOW price for milk or beef give or take nothing where ever you go.
Bringing in fresh grass to the cow has to be cost increase method number one billion and two, in my estimate.
