Cattle are meant to roam and graze. Cattle are not meant to be “centralized in animal feeding operations”. They are meant to eat grass. They are healthy when they eat grass. They can contribute to the health of our grasslands if they are rotated and managed well. Here’s a brief video explaining this further.
Here’s another video where Alberta rancher Tim Hoven talks about the carbon sequestering properties of well-managed grasslands.
Here’s a final video which explains how returning animals to grasslands, managing their grazing to mimic how it would be if predators were present can return areas from desertification to lush healthy grasslands that because of their carbon storage and contribution to the water table could reverse global warming.
So, are you surprised that cattle could actually increase the health of grasslands and help decrease global warming?
