The introduction of rotation in cattle ranches across the globe, this technology can take pressure off forests and bring about significant potential benefits to climate and nature by lowering emissions. Moreover, in partnership with the Good Food Institute, a $5.5 million grant supports research to catalyze the development of alternative proteins.
