Research out of Colorado State University suggests that better land management practices globally can help the livestock industry reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But while the science pointed to almost a complete reduction in GHG through rotational grazing in many cattle systems, the efficiency strategies they examined were not as successful in the U.S. studies. Why? […]
Because the ag industry can reduce its emissions at a lower cost than larger companies, is has an ability to take financial advantage of carbon markets.
Despite the fact that agriculture and forestry are a net carbon sink, we should use practices that reduce emissions and sink carbon back into the Earth.
