Dr. Richard Teague utilizes a systems approach to develop land and livestock management practices that sustain natural rangeland resources and the well-being of the people depending on the land. His research provides insight into the extent that grazing strategies influence key ecosystem services, the economic viability of working ranches that contribute to the retention of open space and rural community health in the Southern Plains of the USA, the extent that different grazing management strategies can be used by livestock producers to mitigate and adapt to alternative climate scenarios, and the long term economic consequences of using alternative grazing management strategies to achieve rangeland restoration and production goals.

Dr. Teague’s presentation will focus on Adaptive multi-paddock (AMP) grazing and its ability to regenerate soil and watershed function, biodiversity, wildlife habitats and farm livelihoods. Early data shows that soil carbon is the essential currency for this vibrancy and ranches that have been studied at a cross-section of locations around North America are drawing down significant amounts of atmospheric CO2 into their soils, sequestering soil carbon that will stay for centuries, catalyzing the production of healthy food and clean water.

This presentation will be based on published work conducted in North Texas by Texas A&M AgriLife Researchers that found AMP grazing stored 3 tons of soil carbon more per hectare per year than conventional grazing did. This research has been extended throughout North America with a multi-disciplinary team of scientists from various institutions who are working together to determine the biological causal mechanisms and human elements that will be enhanced by improved management to regenerate ecosystem function, that provides ecosystem services and improves farm livelihoods in grazing land ecosystems in North America.
