All the steps listed need to be carried out to feed the animals eaten, so your point is not really too relevant.

You do realize that cows eat grass, right? That American cattle get fed corn is due to the massive subsidies driving its cost down.

Cows do naturally eat grass, they are healthier that way too. But, most modern farming techniques feed them corn and other grains since it fattens them but quicker.

Cows elsewhere in the western world mostly don't feed on grass either since it doesn't let them grow fast enough to be profitable.
