The concept of regenerative grazing (also known as holistic planned grazing or holistic management) is rooted in the “law of the second bite”. Conventional grazing systems typically lead to overgrazing, by allowing grazing animals to take a “second bite” of a plant before that plant has had time to recover from the first bite. This, combined with other factors, leads to degenerated land.
In carefully and well managed grazing, the land is allowed to rest for an optimal amount of time before the grazing animals are allowed to return to that spot. This allows the grasses to build up their root structure. The complex relationships and interactions between soil microbes, plant roots, and grazing animals allow for a net sequestration of carbon in the soil.
Regenerative Agriculture is currently ranked as the top 11th solution (out of 100) to climate change in Paul Hawken’s book ‘Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming’. It is estimated it can reduce and safely store 23.15 gigatons of carbon dioxide by 2050.
