How cows can save the planet

Normally we think of cows as being the problem rather than the solution. I spoke to innovative Swiss farmer, Thomas Rippel about how cows can help prevent acid rain, reduce global warming and enrich farm soils.

“The soil is our most precious resource,” says Thomas. It is nature’s natural storehouse. Enriching our soil with living humus is an efficient way to remove carbon from the atmosphere.
This system uses cows to preserve their own manure by compressing it.

I think Thomas is onto something big. How about you?
