Wisconsin dairy farmers are increasingly pasturing their cattle. Why is this great for the environment?
Well, you don't get monstrous ponds of manure, as it stays on the land where it falls. You don't need huge amounts of fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides to maintain a meadow, either. You don't need tons of diesel fuel to let the cattle out into the pasture, as you do to grow maize and soybeans.
You don't get quite as much milk, either, but the milk you get has more vitamins and minerals, and a healthier mix of fats, proteins, and cholesterol than grain-feed cows produce. And given chronic overproduction of milk, maybe it's a good thing that pastured cattle don't produce as much.
Seems that rural life starts anew when you ignore the USDA.
