Grazing Management Can Reduce Carbon Footprint, Research Shows

Texas A&M AgriLife Research scientist Richard Teague published a research article, “The role of ruminants in reducing agriculture’s carbon footprint in North America,” in the Soil and Water Conservation Society’s Journal of Soil and Water Conservation. Teague’s research showed appropriate grazing management practices in cattle production can be among the solutions for concerns related to agriculture’s impact on the environment. His research suggests benefits from moving toward regenerative grazing practices designed to improve soil biology and function, specifically, improving soil carbon, rainfall infiltration, and soil fertility.
