You may not think of farming as a way to protect the environment, but if you do it the right way, it can be! In this video, grass farmer Joel Salatin explains how the proper use of grazing cattle can help sequester carbon, improve the soil, produce healthier food, and protect the environment.
While improper animal husbandry can actually destroy the environment if not properly managed, when you do the the right way, the opposite is true! In fact, well-managed grazing animals can add organic matter to the soil, help control weed species, maximize the health of grasslands, and even aid in carbon sequestration, potentially slowing climate change.
When it comes down to it, grass farming can actually help us build healthier soils, and remove excess carbon from the atmosphere. Watch the video below to learn more:
