Hi Byron, Do you have public agency leases able to support organic? Most need to spray some weeds. Do you have public leases willing to reduce your lease rate for stewardship? Thank you for your presentation
Marc Horney
01:14:00
Excellent, Byron!
Josh Davy
01:14:12
Thank you Byron

Do the organic label standards align well with sustainability? Could a different standard or translation of it better support animal welfare, rangeland management and greater participation while meeting consumer expectations of what organic means?
Marc Horney
01:29:48
Not sure this is as informative a question as "How much more would you spend per pound of 'environmentally better' product."
Byron Palmer
01:34:57
she is referencing cost of production is far lower in those countries https://www.stonebarnscenter.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Grassfed_Full_v2.pdf
Tracy Schohr
01:38:32
Bryon touched on the paperwork aspect/PITA index, but how do we manage the time aspect to participate in these programs when 80% of cattle producers in CA rely on off farm income?
Devii Rao
01:42:06
What are some of the practices that are incorporated into the Audubon certification? I know several birders who will be interested to hear about this certification.
Lynn Huntsinger she/her
01:43:08
In the surveys I used to do, ranchers consistently had a high interest in wildlife habitat improvement. Genius. And good for the birds.
David Toledo
01:44:24
Excellent set of talks! Thanks to all the speakers.
Cowboy
01:44:35
Exactly as I have ranchers with I work with that sell very expensive hunting priviliges for deer and elk.
Byron Palmer
01:44:42
Awesome Kay!
Lynn Huntsinger she/her
01:45:01
This included people who made no income from the wildlife.
Pelayo Alvarez
01:45:21
Audubon emphasizes grazing management to create/maintain bird habitat but recommends other practices like riparian restoration and others. I can share a sample Habitat Management Plan
Devii Rao
01:46:15
Thanks, Pelayo. That would be great.
Marc Horney
01:46:50
Thank you, Pelayo. We'd all be grateful for that.
Sasha Gennet
01:47:46
And congrats Pelayo on your new role at running Audubon's ranching program in CA!!!
Lance Criley
01:48:04
There are cool efforts in South America that mirror (I think even predate) the audobon effort for certifying bird friendly beef. https://www.birdlife.org/grasslands-alliance/es

Feedback on EOV?
Pelayo Alvarez
01:50:11
thank you. I am still learning.
Susan Edinger Marshall
01:58:29
Faculty Early Retirement Program, so will be teaching 1/2 time for the next 5 years. More time to be rascally.
Marc Horney
01:59:26
Seems the (impossible?) trick is in developing a universal well-informed and meaningful certification that can be dumbed down for the good/bad decision-making processes of the typical consumer. Byron summarized Daniel Kahneman's fast/slow decision-making processes quite nicely. Wonderful to have that come up in a rangelands discussion! :)
Byron Palmer
02:00:58
Hey mark…..i had like 5 min I had to pull out of my presentation, that was all about that book ;).
Sasha Gennet
02:01:08
Marc what if it were a CA certification? Just throwing out an idea... i want to keep this discussin going
Matthew Shapero
02:01:34
Seems like there’s maybe not enough production that stays just in CA?
Susan Edinger Marshall
02:02:03
Where is that Kay?
Susan Edinger Marshall
02:03:09
Thanks Kay, we have family friends that farmed in the area of O'Neill, NE!
David Toledo
02:03:46
Wineries have done an excellent job at certification of origin. Would something like that work for CA livestock production systems?
Marc Horney
02:04:27
I think a California certification might be worth trying. In LA, Silicon Valley, and SF we have a sufficient population of people who may have the means to make dietary decisions based on environmental quality - and are at least minimally educatable, to try that, Sasha.
Marc Horney
02:05:41
And we have the CRCC organization, and others, to build Ag/Environmental collaborations from.
Kay Cornelius
02:09:29
100% of Panorama's CA rancher's production stays in CA.
Pelayo Alvarez
02:11:30
go RCDs!
Rebecca Ozeran
