Livestock Management: the solution to preventing desertification?

Allan Savory directs some strong words towards the scientific community in this short lecture. He raises some highly important issues and one in particular that is relevant to a theme I am trying to raise awareness of through this blog: never discount an option for the sake of it. We must sometimes think outside the box and a flash of inspiration will prove to be useful. Savory’s work here has the potential to do great things. Why do we so often seem incapable of recognising a golden opportunity when we are presented with one?

  1. This is a great point – and example for the fact that increased extensification, not intensification, could actually be part of the solution to address both future climate and food needs. Thanks for highlighting the talk!

  2. Reblogged this on Food (Policy) For Thought and commented:
    This is a great example for the fact that not all livestock is created equal – and that extensification, not intensification, of livestock production could address future land, climate and food issues concurrently.
