Is 100% grass-fed dairy farming better for the environment?

< Back

Compared to confinement and industrial farming, 100% grass-fed organic dairy production is better for the environment because animals walking and feeding on grazing land create a positive environmental impact (on soils, manure management, water conservation and animal welfare) when compared with the large extensions of monoculture (corn and soybeans) needed to raise concentrated populations of animals and managing their waste.
