The Solution: Strategic Grazing

Farmers and ranchers have long understood that by moving their livestock frequently they can maximize both their productivity and the value of their land. Ecologists have proven that strategically moving livestock to prevent overgrazing saves water, helps forage grow faster, increases soil fertility, and can mitigate climate change by pulling carbon from the air back into the soil. Strategic grazing is also better for livestock health which means less methane emissions, higher land productivity, and higher profit margins for the farmer. So if a solution exists to both maximize profits and improve the environment, why isn’t everyone doing it? It’s too much work. Farmers understand the benefits, but with the 60 year old technology that they’re currently using, the costs and time spent are simply too high. Until now.
