Grasslands for cattle safeguard soil, water and land.

by Mark Erb April 03, 2015

 A very interesting article on how cattle are very beneficial to the purity of our lakes, rivers and lands. Land that is not usable for cropping is excellently suited for cattle and should be in grass to prevent erosion. At Wilderness Ranch we strive to employ good land management practices that will hold soil in place during the wet seasons. We are also actively involved in "pasture management" and moving the cattle to mimic the great herds, that build the vast grasslands of the world. When soil is covered with a mat of grass, it takes carbon dioxide (which is vital to plant life) out of the air through the photosynthetic process, and stores it in the soils where it is called organic matter. Then it is very useful to the plants and soil bacteria.
