You've probably heard it before. Animal Agriculture is killing the planet. If you care about the environment, go Vegan, and you'll be the savior.
Well, that's not precisely true because you are supporting Monoculture Farming with a Vegan/Vegetarian diet. This practice traditionally focuses on growing one crop and spraying the rest of the field, killing everything besides that one crop. Regenerative managed diverse pastures grazed by cattle can heal the environment
3 Reasons why Animals are a must for an ecosystem to thrive in a regenerative way. At the end, hear about how two vegans felt the difference when they switched back to meat.
#3 Restore grasslands - holistic planned grazing as a vehicle to restore land's health and allows wildlife to thrive. With adequately managed pasture, you get more diversity of plants that wildlife like to eat. Everything from birds, deer, turkey, rabbits, and so much flood into the pastures after the cattle leave. Rotating our cattle boosts the whole local environment, unlike fields with one crop sprayed with pesticides to kill everything in sight besides that crop.
#2 Cattle help create drought-resistant soil. Vegan diets or animals fed high grain rations contribute to monoculture farming, destroying our earth and ecosystems around the country. Plants and animals are going extinct every year. Millions of acres sit as bare soil for much of the year. They are causing runoff and the soil microbes to die off. Over time this will slow down the soil's absorption rate. The ground can't make the most out of the rain when this happens. Boosting your soil's ability to use the rainwater is massively in drought-stricken areas. Regenerative/Holistic management practices can change that. See How in 2min Here
#1 Animals manage the landscape better than any human of a fossil fuel-powered lawn mower can. When raising cattle in a Regenerative way, we rotate the cattle through the pastures allowing them to eat the grass at the perfect length and then move on to the next section of the range. They leave behind fertilizer that will help the soil microbes grow. This process creates what's known as a Carbon Sink. Learn More About Carbon Sinks Here
In this week's episode of the What's On Your Table Podcast, I interviewed a fantastic couple that had been vegan for many years and switched to eating Regenerative Meat. Here is How It Went!
