    We did this for thirty years, 60s - 90s optimised pasture growth and soil fertility.

    We put cows in concentration camps and let them sleep on concrete. they only eat corn and never get to eat grass. Very sad.

    I find it peculiar that that we’ve never calculated how much methane gas vegans produce by eating so many veggies.

    Totally agree. We should be doing this.

    Methane emissions from cattle is roughly about 15% of global greenhouse emissions. It doesn't matter whatever else you do to spin it, meat has to go. The narrative is gibberish.

    Right, we need more invasive species here like kudzu, Eurasian ring neck doves. Brilliant! Let's bring in African Cow Birds. ...Cattle Egrets.

    This isn't anything new, it's been done since ever, crop and pasture rotation is the only way they could have done it before the invention of chemicals
