Could cattle ranchers have stopped the decline of the cattle industry that occurred in the late 1880's?
No, because the decline of the cattle industry is due to changes in customer's interests?
You could add more to your answer.
No, because the decline of the cattle industry is due to changes in consumer's interests and wants. If there was a lesser demand of beef from consumers, then there is potential for the decline of beef sales to be had, no matter if ranchers or cattlemen's associations tried to find someway to promote their product to them?
OK. That's much better.
