"As Shauna Sadowski, head of sustainability for the natural and organic operating unit at General Mills, puts it, 'Our current model is an extractive one that has left our environment in a state of degradation — eroded soil, polluted water. We have to change the entire paradigm to use natural ecological processes to gather nutrients and build the soil.' "

    I don't have answers, but enjoyed reading the book "Meat: A benign extravagance" by Simon Fairlie several years ago. Might be another resource to add to the pile for those interested in this topic. I've moved to a largely vegetarian existence but did enjoy reading about the part that animals play in the regenerative ag landscape.

    Past all distractions, getting to the essence, just ask: who ? started the "What is good for the planet?" .... answer: the U.N.

    And what about the BEEF ? - Simple: Momma suckles her babe, & when ready the youngster then dines on HEALTHY grass... until it's determined moment, to end up on someone's plate.
