Can You Grow Soil Heath Without Cattle?
One of the principles of soil health is “integrating livestock,” as it tends to be an efficient way of redistributing and processing carbon and microbiology across the land. But a lack of fencing as well as the need for a different management mindset means it’s often easier said than done. So the question for many growers is whether carbon and biological diversity can be sufficiently developed without having livestock roaming the grounds.
