Intensive holistic rotational grazing where beef herds graze quickly eating mostly plant tops where super food energy is, is taking the world by storm. With this high density grazing much of the plant is trodden onto the ground, where it provides cover, soil nutrients and protects the soil from sun and erosion, tramping in seed, and enabling massive nematode production. What is now clear is that grazing cattle in this manner of mimicking wild herds, massively influences positive soil and pastures and restores over grazed, decertified soils. In Africa grazing lands constitutes nearly 43 percent of the continent and it's now clear that using this technique rehabilitation of grazing lands takes place quickly - it's the most exciting advance in agriculture in the last 50 years.
This advanced system also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, increases soil carbon sequestration, improves soil fertility and facilitates water infiltration and soil nutrient cycling. Lastly healthy cattle-grazed soils are home to many micro-organisms that help crops fight off pests and diseases. As this new movement gathers momentum, it appears that cattle grazing will save much of the grazing areas of the planet.
There is nothing more sustainable and natural than eating grass fed natural beef where holistic rotational grazing is practised. We'll tell you more shortly on what fantastic results we have had from Jartaskraal with our Wagyu/Angus cattle using this holistic rotational grazing and the amazing recovery of our Cape Natural and wild grasses have been!
