This is a video my daughter sent me and it shows exactly what we can do with grazing animals all over the world. Grazing animals guts are the original recyclers. It is a good thing to graze properly, our world depends on it.
The Patagonia video along with the recent United Nations report (see U.N. says animal handling key to cutting emissions on the farm, Drovers Cattlenetwork, 9.26.2013) are two contrasting but positive views to livestock production. I feel the report released is much more positive than the one titled, Livestock’s Long Shadow, and goes right along with the science-based solutions I hear at seminars all the time. The natural nutrient recycling through grazing is also needed to make this world work. We need both technology and Mother Nature’s natural system in this world to progress. Is it not an amazing time we live in?
