How one farmer is adding carbon to the soil

"Jim Munch raises beef cattle in western Wisconsin and his heard has something in common with the Wild Bison that once roamed the area. They never graze in the same place for long munch moves his cattle through a series of pastures. They eat the grass in one area for a days and then move on, so it has time to recover. Called rotational grazing, the practice can build soil carbon over time. As the animals graze manure and plant material. Get worked into the ground. Munch says over the forty years. He's had Carolina's land. Just by rotational grazing. We've built organic matter twofold. That's good for the climate and the farm soil rich in organic matter holds more moisture so much is pastors are more resilient to droughts. Three years ago when we had this six week dry period, I never took off pastor. And during heavy storms, healthy soil absorbed drain instead of washing away. We've had a number of one hundred year rains in the last decade. On our farm when you went out and walked onto pastures, it was like walking on a wet sponge, so he says rotational grazing is a way for farmers to reduce carbon pollution and adapt to climate change.
