    • Animal Agriculture and the Environment


      from nwveg.org Added 523 2 0

      George Wuerthner doesn't cut any slack in letting you know about the impacts of animal agriculture and what's wrong with ranching and grazing on America's wide open spaces. His education and considerable experience led him to an overwhelming concusion that the policy to tie up over 1 billion acres of our land raising livestock and animal feed is wrong and needs to be changed. This video of George's recent presentation to a NWVEG audience in Portland, Oregon, makes a strong case for challenging our assumptions about the correctness of cowboy culture. As George states in an open letter to the Sierra Club, "Nothing would produce a greater positive impact upon the West's wildlife and land health than ending livestock production."

      • Wayne Hage, American Rancher, Interview Pt 2

        (Please feel free to share this video. Just click on the white paper airplane logo in the top right corner above.) This interview is the last one that Wayne gave before he passed away. It is a fascinating look at the challenges of ranching life in America. No editing - just Wayne. (In case you missed it, here is a link to Part 1 of this interview https://vimeo.com/8520897/settings ) This interview was conducted with Wayne Hage at the Pine Creek Ranch in Nevada. One of America's largest ranches, Pine Creek stretches over 1100 square miles (approx. 760,00 acres). From the time Hage and his family bought the ranch in June 1978 until today, they have battled the US Government and various environmental agencies over the grazing and water rights, ultimately prevailing at the US Supreme Court level, but faced with appeals and continuing litigation. It became one of America's landmark property rights cases and is studied in law schools today. This is Hage's fascinating account of the events that transpired on his ranch. Hage passed away shortly after these interviews were conducted and we believe that this was the last time he went on camera. I didn't know until I interviewed Wayne that (according to Wayne) much of the water in the United States is owned by United Water, which is in turn owned by the Suez Company located in France but owned by the United Arab Emirates, whose mission is to be the largest water company in the world. This interview is unedited (except for my questions, which were taken out, leaving only Wayne's voice).

        • Beef Genetics for Total Forage Systems


          from Georgia Organics Added 74 2 0

          There are two types of cattle, “corn cattle” and “grass cattle.” First and foremost, the bovine was put on this earth to function as a grazing animal. The agriculture industry has created a bovine that requires inputs most forage-based systems cannot economically support. This session will discuss selection and management of beef cattle for minimal input, sustainable systems. Presented by Bill Hodge, Hodge Ranch, at the 2012 Georgia Organics Conference in Colubmus, GA.

                  from Feasta Added 27.7K 78 4

                  Feasta Lecture 2009 Extracts available at http://vimeo.com/8291896 Allan Savory argued that while livestock may be part of the problem, they can also be an important part of the solution. He has demonstrated time and again in Africa, Australia and North and South America that, properly managed, they are essential to land restoration. With the right techniques, plant growth is lusher, the water table is higher, wildlife thrives, soil carbon increases and, surprisingly, perhaps four times as many cattle can be kept. http://www.feasta.org/events/general/2009_lecture.htm www.savoryinstitute.com Recorded 7 November 2009, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland
