Sustainability; it’s not an easy concept to define, either for us in agriculture, or the consumers we serve. In this unique webinar, Dr. Mitloehner talks about feeding the people of this world while still practicing sustainable agriculture.

Biogenic Methane – the kind of methane from cattle and wetlands – is unique among the main three greenhouse gases that influence climate change. The difference being, it has a short life-span and is part of the natural carbon cycle, but we haven’t always considered those facts when we consider how it warms the planet. And warming is what we care about when talking about global climate change. This video explains why we should be rethinking how we measure biogenic methane’s impact on the environment.
