Ruminants are unquestionably unique. From their ability to up-cycle carbon sources like pasture, food production byproducts and resources from non-arable land, converting them into highly nutritious protein. This uniqueness places them central to the three pillars of sustainability (environmental, social and economic) and further reinforces why they have been an integral part of all societies, throughout time.
