Georgia farm offsets 100% of its grass fed beef’s carbon emissions
May 28, 2019
Scientists at Quantis, an environmental research and design firm, conducted a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) on beef raised by Georgia based White Oak Pastures and found that the farm is storing more carbon in its soil than pasture-raised cows emit during their lifetimes.
The objective of the study is to analyze the farm's overall greenhouse gas footprint and the results indicated that White Oak Pastures offsets at least 100% of the 3,200-acre farm's grass-fed beef carbon emissions and as much as 85% of the farm’s total carbon emissions.
The study included enteric emissions (belches and gas) from cattle, manure emissions, farm activities, slaughter and transport, and carbon sequestration through soil and plant matter. White Oak Pastures is a multi-generational 3,200-acre farm and is the largest Certified Organic farm in Georgia, raising 10 species of livestock.
