Grazewell: Climate-Smart Beef Backed by Science

All beef production emits greenhouse gasses. But with a few simple tweaks to how we manage cattle, our ranches are showing that those emissions can be reduced or offset. But carbon can not be the only metric, that’s why we’ve developed a more holistic and regenerative ranching program called Grazewell. The program  focuses on productivity, biodiversity, energy, and water cycles. Grazewell holds our ranchers to a standard of management practices that better mimic natural processes. To help support our Ranchers regenerative ranching practices, in 2023 we were awarded a 5 year study - 10M USDA Climate Smart Grant with our partners at Sustainable Northwest.
