Cattle, when properly grazed, offers potential solutions to soil health, animal health, human health, carbon sequestration, water supply and food nutrition. It's a brave new world, and it's below our feet.
We are creating a series of short films about regenerative grazing practices and soil health. The first film, 'Soil Carbon Cowboys,' has been seen in 150 countries by a million people. It has had a tremendous impact on ranchers seeking a more regenerative way to graze, policymakers on how to include soil carbon into their nascent carbon markets and (as seen in Soil Carbon Curious) scientists eager to study whole systems science on these healthy, vibrant AMP (Adaptive Multi-paddock) grazed lands.
We just released 'One Hundred Thousand Beating Hearts' and continue to make films about soil health.
One Hundred Thousand Beating Hearts short film
Will Harris, pioneering farmer in rural Georgia shares his journey from industrialized beef production to sustainable, humane agricultural and environmental stewardship.
Soil Carbon Cowboys short film
Meet Allen Williams, Gabe Brown and Neil Dennis - heroes and innovators! These ranchers now know how to regenerate their soils while making their animals healthier and their operations more profitable. They are turning ON their soils, enabling rainwater to sink into the earth rather than run off. And these turned ON soils retain that water, so the ranches are much more resilient in drought. It's an amazing story that has just begun.
Soil Carbon Curious short film
Adaptive Multi-Paddock grazing (AMP grazing) is regenerating soils around the world, producing healthy grass-finished beef. But the science on AMP grazing is sparse, to say the least. Now, a group of leading soil, rangeland, bug and social scientists are setting out to fill the science gap. Led by Dr. Richard Teague of Texas A&M, and convened by filmmaker Peter Byck of Arizona State University, the ASU•Soil Carbon Nation Whole Systems Science Team is positioned to do large scale science that's never been done before.
