Here a real farmer speculating that the recent mob of drones seen methodically mapping something near Colorado / Kansas might be looking at water use due to western water wars being the usual big deal. He also touches on soil health and ground water recharge issues.
In particular, he cites real world experience where grazing captures more water into ground water while till farming loses a lot more.
This has implication for the aquifer as well as surface temperatures. So the next time someone complains about meat eating and water use for cattle, point out it takes less than till farming and builds up soil instead of degrading it. Cows are good for the land AND the water table. 30 minutes.
I don’t know if his ideas on the drones are right, but it sounds a lot more likely to me than most other speculation.
I do know his statements about rotational grazing as restorative are correct as it has been physically demonstrated.
