My hypothesis of livestock grazing proved with a scientific research
A pre-designed scientific project with a plantation of native flora in the soil and allowing sheep grazing in Temple university (USA) proved that the grazed area could sequestrate up to 80% carbon – THE STUDY FOUND.
I have been advocating plantation/protection of native flora and introducing livestock grazing to our fields, forest, and pastureland can revitalize the soil health on one hand and minimize the risk of wildfires on the other hand. https://arkbiodiv.com/2021/07/06/give-the-livestock-its-original-role-the-grazing-and-recover-the-losses/amp/
Livestock grazing -an ecosystem service
Nature created animals (millennia of evolution) to perform a role, yes a role – “to serve the Ecosystems”. We all are the actors/players of the ecosystems, including fauna and flora, microorganisms, and nonliving things like water, winds, landscapes, etc. We as a team of players can keep our ecosystems in a good state of health and functionality. The ecosystem is a functional phenomenon, it is functioning/working on a regular basis. https://arkbiodiv.com/2021/08/05/giving-livestock-grazing-a-chance-a-success-story-of-goats-role-in-vegetation-management-project-laguna-beach-california-usa/amp/
In the grazed land, nutrients may accumulate for 12 to 15 years – Temple university study
The researchers’ early estimates suggest that an acre of grazed native plants may improve the soil at a rate of one ton of sequestered carbon per year and that carbon and other nutrients may accumulate for 12 to 15 years before the soil is fully saturated – the study says. I hereby share the link to the scientific study for further reading and detailed information.https://www.pv-magazine.com/2022/02/08/livestock-increase-carbon-sequestration-by-up-to-80-in-pv-projects/?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook
