How To Fix Dry Earth
It’s a fact that the dry earth is getting worse and worse every year, but there is a solution to this problem. Allan Savory a biologist from Boulder, Colorado, and he investigated why some grass grew back on dry earth and some didn’t.
When there is moisture in the air, there is no problem, but when it’s dry outside, there is a problem with grass sticking to the ground.
He learned that you have to have herds of animals grazing.
Grass won’t grow where there are no grazing, and animals won’t live if they can’t graze.
But then he learned something else that was amazing… if the animals didn’t graze in a natural way which is all bunched together, and they overate and didn’t graze for a short period of time, the grass would also not grow on the dry earth.
Grass also cools the air which then prevents the soil from eroding.
It takes the moisture from the air and holds onto it. It also absorbs CO2 from the air and lets it seep into the grass.
Grass is the very foundation of our ecosystem and turns sunlight into food
Experts now say that if we use either wild or domesticated grazing hoofed animals, we could remove so much carbon from our air, that we could go back to clean air prior to the industrial revolution.
There are two aspects to grazing that are needed to make this work
1. Hoofed animals that graze the natural right way
2. Predators and disgust
We need the predators that make the herd scatter so they don’t graze for too long.
After a couple of days of them grazing, urinating and defecating, they have to look for much greener grass and they move on. This allows the ground to be tilled and fertilized on a regular basis, and then left alone to seed and grow.
Once it grows back, the animals come back to graze again. If they don’t come back, the tall grass will will rot and smother any new grass trying to sprout.
Because man started abusing animals and are treating them like slaves by putting them into factory farms, there have been NO herds to graze.
Plus, they have been building houses and tall building after building and getting rid of our land and grass, so all we are left with is very bad dry earth and concrete which then creates heat into the atmosphere.
Allan Savory and his team have traveled all over to prove that this method of grazing which they call, “Holistic Management,” will save our world. They have also learned to combine both domestic and wild herds which makes them healthier, stronger and produces more acres of grass.
Remember they have to have predators there in order to move the herds around.
Benefits to using this holistic management method
1. We use less water when growing food since there will be grasslands.
2. Livestock can be raised and fed on the rain water grass.
3. The meat from the livestock will be healthier since the animals are eating what they are supposed to eat which is grass, NOT grains which is what the feed the animals in factory farming. These grains make them sick, they then pump them with antibiotics, and we eat their diseased flesh and all the drugs they force into the animals.
4. Once you start using this holistic grazing method, the roots from the grass grow deeper over time absorbing MORE carbon and holding in more water which then prevents runoff. No runoff means no loss of topsoil from wind and rain and this ultimately protects both the animals and plants from drought. You can have grasslands within a year of starting this project.
One of the arguments is the methane that comes from all the hoofed animals.
Your two options are:
- You have barron dry earth that produces NO food or oxygen. This then produces too much heat, the grass isn’t grazed, it rots and then produces methane.
- The hoofed animals graze and create the natural ecological cycle that has existed for millions of years before humans ruined it by destroying the earth. You still get some methane, but it’s inside the cow.
