Story at-a-glance -

  • Adaptive multi-paddock (AMP) grazing is a certain type of rotational grass fed farming that allows cattle to graze in one paddock at a time, while other paddocks have a chance to grow and regenerate at an accelerated pace
  • In one four-year study, greenhouse gas emissions from the AMP system were reduced to a negative amount whereas feedlot emissions increased due to soil erosion
  • AMP grazing has the potential to offset greenhouse gas emissions by sequestering carbon in the soil and acting as a net carbon sink
  • Compared to areas with industrial agriculture, organic agriculture “hotspots” had a lower county-level poverty rate and a higher median household income, showing that while CAFOs are known to destroy communities, regenerative agriculture provides economic benefits

Unfortunately, while far healthier and environmentally friendly grass fed beef has the potential to solve many of the problems that CAFO meats have caused, CAFOs remain the primary method of livestock agriculture in the U.S. Rather than quickly phasing out their use to stave off environmental and public health decline, their use is actually growing.
