Do grazing cows restore the land?

In our system, they do, for the most part. Under the correct stock ratio of cows per acre and the right rotation system soils under pasture do get restored over time, bringing the ecosystem back to a balance: soils regain the right physical, chemical and biological characteristics, animal and plant biodiversity are present. Water is conserved in quantity and quality, and green house gas emissions are reduced or even become negative, as the system sequesters carbon from the atmosphere into the restored soils.
