Garnett, T., Godde, C., et al. (2017). Grazed and Confused? Ruminating on cattle, grazing systems, methane, nitrous oxide, the soil carbon sequestration question – and what it all means for greenhouse gas emissions. Food Climate Research Network, University of Oxford.
Grazed and Confused? dissects claims made by different stakeholders about “grass-fed” beef, the greenhouse gases the animals emit, and the possibility these animals can help remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It evaluates these claims and counterclaims against the best available science, providing an authoritative and evidence-based answer to the question: Is grass-fed beef good or bad for the climate?
