  • Why we need more herds of livestock

    One of the arguments used by vegetarians is that meat production and livestock is not sustainable and contributes to global warming. This incredible Ted Talk proves this is not only not true, but reintroducing large herds of livestock to simulate ancient vast herds that traversed our plains is crucial to preventing desertification. Please watch and pass it on.

    I was just looking for this, Kestral posted it yesterday and I wanted to pass it on. It's a very inspiring talk. I just hope the idea of bringing back livestock isn't corrupted and misinterpreted to mean large scale productions. From what I gather from the talk he's talking about smaller herds that are frequently moved.

      I think he's referring to larger herds - meaning in the 3,000 to 4,000 range. Think wildebeests on the Serengeti - that type of size.

        I watched it yesterday via the link here. Really good talk and encouraging! Reminds us that even though we cut links out of our food chains all the time through hubris or negligence, we can still figure out how to fix it and get back in sync with our environment, sometimes.
        Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.

          Yes it is encouraging for sure. I was most impressed with the before and after photos.

            During the video he talks about holistic grazing, watch it again and you will see he deals with your concerns.

              I understand how he deals with holistic grazing I'm just a little concerned that those that take on grazing here in the US may not follow his method. It would be so wonderful to reclaim the arid lands in the US while feeding people. It's very encouraging.

                Check out this article: ‚€˜Brown Revolution‚€™ targets long-term productivity on range - for a group of people who are already implementing these methods on hundreds of thousands of acres of grassland.

                This sounds like a wonderful investment opportunity..
