Cattle, Beef, and Grazing

According to Dr. John Menke, ruminants―grazing animals with four-compartment stomachs―are the only naturally occurring source of vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is a by-product of their digestive process, and is found in their meat. Of the ruminants, cattle are the most productive. Beef, therefore, is the lowest-cost, and cattle are the most prevalent. Beef is also an excellent source of protein and overall nutrition.

The Assault on Cattle

The neo-environmental movement appears to hate cattle, and is attacking grazing from every direction it can think of―endangered species listings, expulsion from public lands, wetland designations, alleged greenhouse gas effects (excessive farting), alleged destructive effects on habitat, and more.

On this page, we will explore this topic further.

Grazing Can Be Beneficial To Habitat

The natural inclination is to believe grazing is detrimental to habitat. Hooves, after all, can tread on vegetation and dig up the ground. This conventional viewpoint tragically led to the slaughter of 40,000 elephants before the falsity of this conventional viewpoint was discovered.

Actual research―performed by Dr. John Menke and others―proves grazing can be very beneficial to habitat and plant bio-diversity. Left undisturbed, the ground can form a hardened skin that reduces the absorption of water, even to the point of denuding the ground of vegetation. Every gardener and farmer tills the land for this very reason. Grazing animals perform a similar function in lands where tilling is not feasible or economical.

In the following video, Allan Savory shares the astounding results of real tests that conclusively prove cattle can have a beneficial affect on habitat.
