Sustainable Northwest’s Regenerative Ranching Project Receives Grant Funding
The nonprofit Sustainable Northwest has received a grant of nearly $489,000 from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust for a new regenerative ranching program, reports Oregon Capital Chronicle. More than 100 ranching members of the Country Natural Beef marketing cooperative, representing 6.5 million acres, have signed up for the program. The regenerative ranching program will offer planning assistance and provide verification that participants are using regenerative practices such as rotational grazing and forage management to capture carbon. Sustainable Northwest anticipates that participants will be able to receive a price premium for products that are certified as produced using regenerative practices.
