Grassfed beef will save the world

2014-01-12 23:33:08.257382+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

I have mixed feelings over some of the Weston Price Foundation's doings; I have found some of their conclusions and studies suspicious, but I've also recently had a number of read-throughs of some maligned papers that makes me question the axes of the maligners. So, yeah...

Anyway, Shadow sent along How Grassfed Beef Will Save the World, a talk by Chris Kerston, partner at Chaffin Orchards,at the Weston A. Price Wise Traditions Conference 2012 in Santa Clara (YouTube), and I need to find the 1:20 to listen to it...

I suspect that it will largely be reiterations of things I've heard from Joel Salatin and similar, about how grass fed beef can be part of a complete farming ecosystem that results in tremendous amounts of carbon sequestration, along with better water management and all the other awesome benefits we've come to know and love.

Not to mention be tastier than grain finished beef.

I've met Chris and think he's a good guy in pursuit of best practices. Allan Savory is actually a hero of mine, I truly believe he is a beautiful human being and now that we have had dinner together, I know how to cook an elephants foot (it never came up before)

I think this ted talk gives the best summary http://www.ted.com/talks/allan..._and_reverse_climate_change.html
