可持续型牧场  Ranching Rebooted

  随着人们对肉类安全与环境之间关系的关注,一些牧场主们为了畜牧业的长远发展开始努力根据生态科学来进行管理。这种被称为“可持续型牧场”的管理方式认为,要治愈土地就应该放牧更多的牲畜,而不是更少,但是转场间隔要减小。如果牲畜们模仿野生食草动物的进食行为,为了保持安全聚集起来觅食,短时间内集中在一个区域内觅食后转移,牧场的健康情况自然会改进。

  Now, spurred by growing consumer concern over meat's environmental impact and concerned about the long-term viability of their livelihood, a cohort of ranchers is trying to apply the understanding gleaned from the science of ecology to livestock management. The idea is called 'sustainable ranching' and it says to heal the land, put more animals on it, not fewer - but move them after a relatively brief interval. If livestock mimick the grazing behavior of wild herbivores - bunched together for safety, intensely grazing an area for a brief period, and then moving on - rangeland health will improve.

  一群牛仔在护送牛群穿越卢比戴尔山区,前往蒙大拿州西南的百年谷夏季牧场中途休息时挤进一辆拖车里弹奏音乐。现在,很少还有牛仔会骑马驱赶牛群转场,一般用卡车运输。

  Ranchers huddle inside a trailer and play music during a break as they drive cattle 60 miles through the Ruby Dell Mountains to their summer pastures in the Centennial Valley of Southwestern Montana. Today, few ranches drive their cattle with horses, instead moving them by truck.
