Carbon sequestration opportunities for cattle producers

Carbon sequestration opportunities for cattle producers

While attention for carbon credits has been focused on row crops, one company says there are growing opportunities for cattle producers.

Mike Hogar, regional consultant with Agoro Carbon Alliance says there can be significant returns on investment and improvements to herd health. “We’re able to really create a better soil microbiome, a better overall opportunity to raise carbon within a ranching scenario, and most people wouldn’t believe that.”

He says their contracts don’t require changes in management strategies or require upfront investments.
