Humanity cannot out-engineer nature
Using the principles developed and established by Nature herself, we guide the land back towards its primacy in an ecosystem devoid of the massive herds that once washed across the landscape — the massive herds whose hooves and mouths created a savanna paradise lasting two million years. The American Mastodon is gone, but beef cattle remain. Direwolves and saber-toothed cats are now extinct, but we have electric fences and man to perform their role.
Regenerative grazing reestablishes the ancient balancing act where grazers, plants, microbes and fungi form a complete cycle, building carbon rich soil. Without a doubt regenerative grazing is the ONLY scalable solution to regenerating the natural world and feeding civilization.
Regenerate the land by maximizing sustainable profit per acre
This succinct statement incorporates both the economic and ecological aspects of grazing. In order to maximize sustainable profit, we must move the landscape towards climax ecology.
“Per acre” is important because the vast majority of operations still measure success by maximizing production per animal (weaning weight). This is favoring cattle at the expense of the ecology. In order to accomplish our mission, we must bring balance and harmony to the cattle, the land, and ourselves.
