Regenerative Cattle Farming Beef Organs

Regenerative Agriculture

Contemporary 'modern' agriculture has sadly veered off course with the adoption of monocropping, confined animal feeding operations, and the use of synthetic glyphosates, hormones, and external antibiotics.

In stark contrast, Regenerative agriculture represents a return to the traditional way of raising animals, closely resembling the natural grazing patterns of ruminants on Earth's grasslands over millennia. Through rotational grazing methods, regenerative agriculture aims to conserve the natural environment and foster a more robust ecosystem.

Naturally Regenerative Cattle Farming

Mindful of our responsibility to steward the land that sustains us, we are dedicated to conscious agricultural practices. In 2020, we made the decision to repurpose what had largely been considered discarded animal by-products, transforming them into nutrient-dense beef organ supplements.

We partner with farmers certified by Australian Certified Organic (ACO), who practice 'naturally' regenerative farming methods in raising their high quality 100% grass-fed & finished cattle. These farmers employ rotational grazing across expansive open landscapes in the Australian outback.

This approach allows cattle to roam freely, following natural feed cycles and seasonal patterns, returning to previous areas once soil and grasses have regenerated.

This type of farming is what many smaller (area) size farms mimic with their own regenerative practices by moving their cattle around, facilitating soil health and grass regeneration.

Giving Back - Soils for Life

Cell Squared is committed to embodying the change we hope to see in the natural health movement, reverting to the foundational principles essential for humans to thrive.

We continuously seek to support like-minded individuals and organisations who share our values, leading us to donate to Soils For Life.

This independent, non-profit organization has been supporting Australian farmers since 2013, spearheading the shift towards regenerative approaches to agriculture.

With each purchase of our beef organ supplements, 40c of the sale goes towards helping Soils for Life to inspire farmers around Australia and the world to become better stewards of the land and the soil”.

Soils for Life: What is Regenerative Agriculture? 

Soils for Life, use the term ‘regenerative agriculture’ to describe any system of principles, practices and decision-making processes that effectively rebuild soil and landscape diversity through agriculture. A ‘regenerative’ approach to agriculture aims to rehabilitate, enhance & work with (rather than against) ecosystem processes, placing a premium on soil health.

Soils for Life see soil as a fundamental resource that underpins our food system and makes all life on earth possible. Their focus is to build confidence in approaching practice change, removing barriers, and smoothing the path for the next generation of regenerative farmers.

What is Regenerative Cattle Farming?

Regenerative cattle farming is a method of agriculture centred on rejuvenating and enhancing soil health, biodiversity, and ecosystems, all while boosting agricultural productivity. In contrast to conventional farming practices that can exhaust soil nutrients and harm the environment, regenerative farming aims to collaborate with nature, establishing sustainable and robust farming systems.

This approach ensures soil rich in nutrients, leading to an abundance of food, and the strengthening of ecosystem resilience so farmers can raise healthier cattle with superior nutritional profiles.

Regenerative cattle farming practices benefits every element from the environment, cattle, farmers & their families, consumers within the community and the planet.

Let’s look at the pillars of regenerative cattle farming.

Understanding the Land & Soil Monitoring

Study the land: Consider seasonal changes, grass feed types and growth rates, and local environment to choose the best number/type of livestock, plan cattle rotation, & water management.

Measure the soil health:Take base soil measurements, monitor changes with continuous soil testing. Make improvements & adapt practices.

Improving Soil Health & Fostering

Diversify ecosystems: Promote a rich variety of plant species, insects, and microorganisms to nurture healthier soils and bolster landscape resilience.

Incorporate cover crops: Keep living roots within the cropping system to enrich soil, suppress weeds, and disrupt pest cycles.

Preserve crop residue:Leave stubble in the landscape to encourage regrowth and safeguard the soil.

Diversify farming practices:
To improve biodiversity look at different crop options if farming area & climate allow.

Integrating Livestock Sustainably

Embrace holistic grazing management: Rotate livestock through smaller pastures more frequently (cell grazing) to minimize selective grazing, allowing for better sunlight & nutrient distribution into the soil.

For very large size farms:
Allow cattle to roam freely, rotate naturally following feed cycles, while also monitoring grazing area & soil health, move cattle on to allow regeneration of certain areas when required.

Maintain balanced stocking rates:Assess the land's capacity to support grazing animals, accounting for varying stock sizes & seasonal conditions.

Protecting Natural Resources

Safeguard wetlands, riverbanks & wildlife corridors:Ensure the protection of these vital areas to preserve water quality & provide habitats for native species.

Implement time-controlled grazing techniques: Rotate livestock to prevent overgrazing & enable pastures to regenerate.

Sustainable practices: Reduce reliance on tillage (no tillage preferred), absolutely no harmful chemicals, synthetics, pesticides, fertilisers & herbicides. Create sustainable water usage methods & minimise the use of external inputs that pose harm to the environment & ecosystems.

Embracing Composting & Mulching

Restorative composting methods: Enrich the soil with nutrients and enhance its structure by composting organic matter.

Apply mulching techniques:Maintain organic material on the soil surface to prevent erosion, retain moisture & promote soil health.
