I like to imagine that the duder on the left's loincloth is made from a beaver pelt, but woodchucks and beavers are both rodents of similar size, so it'd probably work just as well to cover your junk.
BEaver and muskrat skins are thin. Muskrat being the thinnest. Trapped a lot of those as a teen, $5-10 a pelt.

Our big trapping thing as kids was pocket gophers. The ones that push up dozens of mounds of dirt all through the fields.

$1 each, except our county took the front feet as bounty and the next county over took the tails so we could work the system and get $2 from each gopher, lol.

And what do you think a good bit of that fertilizer is? There's a whole lot of *animal* waste and petroleum. Hmmmm
You don't gain efficiency by adding layers between the producer and the consumer.

Not that I care one way or t'other, but cows don't provide more calories than they consume.

At no point did I make that argument. I mean, it's probably more efficient to eat soylent green!
You're arguing that we need animals to fertilize the plants that make the food.

That's equivalent.

Even if we didn't have the animals, the Haber-Bosch process fixes nitrogen more efficiently than cow shit ever will.
