Introduction to Regenerative Grazing



  • “Grazed and Confused” Food Climate Network 

    • This source is our most exhaustive single source of information on greenhouse gases from grazing systems. It defines various grazing systems, explains how animal agriculture produces GHG, and explains how specific regenerative practices can sequester GHG. It contains references to many studies that estimate quantities of GHG sequestration potential. It talks about the nitrogen cycle and the effect of manure from the grazing systems.
