Regenerative Agriculture Techniques

Regenerative Agriculture Techniques Regenerative agricultural techniques focus on improving soil health. They may also prove key to combating climate change, an existential threat to our planet.

Permaculture and Rotational Grazing

Meat Wrapping for Freezer Storage

Meat Wrapping for Freezer Storage Stocking up on meat can have a really positive impact on your food budget. It’s always good to know you have meat stored away in your freezer in case of bad weather or last-minute meal changes. Correctly wrapping meat for freezer storage is a vital part of the process. Freezing meat stops bacteria and mold growth while reducing enzyme activity. Be sure to use absolutely clean cutting boards when preparing meat for freezing. Frozen beef does not lose nutritional value during storage, whereas non-frozen meat can lose nutrients more quickly. For all of the above

Livestock Treatment on Regenerative Ranches

Livestock Treatment on Regenerative Ranches Nature designed cattle to roam and eat grass. In turn, grazing bovines help replenish the soil with the physical stimulation of their hooves. This helps recycle nutrients and promote seedling development. Their manure puts nutrients back into the soil. Regenerative grazing involves rotating pastures so that cattle do not overgraze. There is a recovery period for plants before the cattle graze on it again. Erosion is reduced due to continuous root systems in the soil. The runoff leading to water pollution is minimized. Unlike factory-farmed cattle, livestock raised using the principles of regenerative agriculture live naturally and

Does Grass Fed Beef Have Omega 3?

Does Grass Fed Beef Have Omega 3 Omega 3 fatty acids are called “essential” because our bodies cannot produce them on their own. We must obtain these polyunsaturated fats from the food we eat. Insufficient consumption of omega 3 fatty acids can lead to serious health problems. Beef cattle raised using regenerative agriculture practices have higher levels of essential omega 3 fatty acids in their meat than grain-fed beef. At Thousand Hills Lifetime Grazed, we are proud of the sustainable way our cattle are raised and the health benefits provided by grass fed management. Omega 3 Fatty Acids Omega 3

What is Holistic Grazing?

What is Holistic Grazing? Integrating livestock with land regeneration is the basis of holistic grazing. In effect, holistic grazing mirrors nature. In the wild, hooved animals improve soil quality via their manure and the movement of their feet.   The term holistic grazing was coined by Allan Savory, founder of the renowned Savory Institute. It refers to recreating the way wildlife grazes the land naturally.   Holistic grazing is an integral part of healing the land and combatting climate change. These regenerative agriculture practices involve reducing run-off, improving water quality, boosting wildlife habitat, and restoring the environment. At the same

Why Regenerative Farming Is Commonly Referred to as Carbon Farming

Why Regenerative Farming Is Commonly Referred to as Carbon Farming   There is nothing new about regenerative farming. It is the method used by stewards of the land from time immemorial. Conventional farming practices result in releasing more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, contributing to the greenhouse gas emissions causing climate change. Regenerative farming is commonly referred to as carbon farming because it helps plants store rather than release carbon.   Regenerative agriculture plays a major role in carbon sequestration. While conventional agriculture is a leading contributor to climate change, with as much as one-third of greenhouse gas emissions related

Can Beef Be Carbon Neutral?

Can Beef Be Carbon Neutral? Can beef be carbon neutral? The answer is yes, as long as farmers follow sustainable grazing practices. Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time. Our planet’s future literally depends on reversing its effects. Livestock production accounts for approximately 14.5% of all greenhouse gas emissions, a primary climate change driver. Beef cattle make up 41% of livestock greenhouse gas emissions. Healthy soils sequester, or store, carbon dioxide. Overgrazing results in the release of this stored carbon into the atmosphere. Sustainable agricultural practices prevent overgrazing by rotating cattle from pasture to pasture before they
