The key to success is the regeneration of soil health and vitality using cutting edge research into soil structure applied to the original design which was developed millions of years ago. Humans have stretched the model of stewardship from a beneficial relationship with nature to an adversarial relationship. If we don't return to being good stewards, nature will continue to turn up the heat on us. We need a new direction and we need it now.
Reverse engineering the original design takes research into all aspects of natural science and new technology that is just being developed. Using this deep understanding into what soil structure SHOULD be like allows us to recreate, with existing technology, the conditions that built the deep topsoil in grasslands across the planet. It has been shown that grasslands across the planet are capable of sequestering enough atmospheric carbon to restore a healthy carbon balance. By harnessing grasslands, one of the most powerful natural engines of carbon sequestration, we are able to capture and store vast quantities of carbon using clean, completely safe existing technology.
Yes, this is rocket science. It propels us into the future.
The symbiotic relationship between grasslands, grazers and birds across the world is the basis for our wild but unexaggerated claims of environmental restoration. The Carbon Cattle Company can improve and restore existing pastures and grasslands by recreating the natural grazing pattern of cattle that stimulates native grasses in their growth, which restores the carbon storing cycle. Intensive rotational grazing incorporates what is best for the animals we raise and what is best for the soil we are encouraging to heal.
SUSTAINABLE PROFITS AND PRODUCTION WITH
We start with the soil and finish with Organic beef and poultry as our signature products. Our land will yield a wide range of products that all support the health of the grassland and increase the total carbon stored. Beef, pork, chicken, eggs, mushrooms and honey, will be humanely raised and offer better nutrition because the soil itself is alive and healthy. We are including cabins on the farms for our clients and customers to come and enjoy seeing how real food is grown.
Our animals are Certified Organic and produced at a profit that includes carbon stored, which is the hallmark of our company. As long as cattle graze the grasslands and birds follow their migration, carbon will continue to be stored in a balance that feeds the animals with rich forage and supplies those animals to feed people food which is rich in vitamins and minerals and free of toxins.
Our farms are based on a 200-acre model that is scalable, from 50-ares to millions of acres. Each 200-acre section can produce in a year 500 cows, 150,000 meat chickens, 3750 egg laying chickens that produce 78,000 dozen eggs, 300 pigs, two-acres of mushroom cultivation, 800 lbs. of honey as well as hay for winter-feeding.
This model has been developed for the temperate climate in the southeastern United States and can be duplicated globally under similar weather conditions. However, under conditions that are hotter, colder, drier or wetter the model can be adapted to fit those conditions and still be profitable. The acreage, stocking and types of livestock can be varied to maximize local conditions while regenerating the soil and sequestering carbon.
This is a very intensive management of resources and is the key to our high profit potential. Because the management is so tight, the 200-acre sections will reach a maximum yield and simply hum along providing the same benefits of food, carbon storage and profit for as long as the farm cycle is maintained. The model shows a gross profit of $16,000 to $22,000 per acre per year with a 2 to 1 net realized. In order to increase profit it is necessary to develop more acres and expand the farm. Expansion can be local or in any area where suitable land is available. The most reasonable areas are existing cattle farms that can be easily converted to the more productive model.
Clearing new land is not necessary. There is enough land currently used for cattle farming around the world to fulfill our needs for many years.
Other farm developers are using parts of the available research into increasing farm efficiency, but we are told by some of the researchers that we are the first to pull it all together and create a holistic, synergistic and profitable farm model.
