McCafferty Ranch are a family owned and operated cattle ranch in Central Montana owned by Joel and Cindy McCafferty (the 3rd, 4th, and 5th generations are all living on the ranch).  In 2014, Joel and Cindy's daughter Megan (and husband Logan) moved back to the ranch, and the need to diversify the ranch's income arose.  Joel had seen hydroponics used by a friend to maintain his bull herd.  When he saw this, he immediately started thinking about how he could feed out beef cattle on barley sprouts.  After some research (although there was very limited research on the topic at the time) they jumped all in and built a hydroponic plant on the ranch. The plant was designed and built by members of the family in 2017, and they started feeding cattle on barley sprouts for direct to consumer sales.   Their mission from the get go was to produce the healthiest and best tasting beef possible.  They feel as if they have accomplished that.  All of their beef cattle are born and raised on their ranch.  They practice gentle cattle handling from birth to processing by doing all of their cattle work on horseback.   Finally, the beef is finished on barley sprouts.  The barley fodder has allowed their cattle to gain weight extremely well (comparable to grain finished beef) and to marble extremely well (comparable to grain finished beef).  They often tell potential customers that the barley sprouts allow their animals to gain weight much like an athlete would - through a healthy diet and exercise (their animals are fed out in a large pasture where they are required to walk distances to feed, graze and water). These health benefits are translated into the beef product. Currently they sell beef direct to consumers through nationwide sales and bulk local orders.  Additionally, they have recently started producing beef tallow products such as soaps, lotions, and leather conditioners that are 100% non-toxic and really allow them to utilize the whole animal. They have also redesigned their hydroponic plant and manufactured an entirely new hydroponic system that is now available to purchase. This new hydroponic system is unlike any other on the market and they believe superior because of production ability, state of the art automations, and lower price points than competitors.  They could go on and on about the applications for hydroponics within the ag industry and believe that it could really change agriculture for the better. https://www.mccaffertyranch.com/ https://www.instagram.com/mccaffertyranchbeef/ Timestamps 00:00 Introduction 04:15 Hydroponics 07:50 Sprouts as finishing ration 12:55 USDA grading system 15:13 Water used for producing sprouts 17:51 Herbicides, pesticides 19:37 Temperature 23:42 Just water and barley 26:53 Acreage 32:56 Drought in Montana 38:07 Limitations to scaling 43:59 Metabolomic analysis of beef 49:36 Feeding hydroponic sprouts to beef See open positions at Revero: https://jobs.lever.co/Revero/ Join Carnivore Diet for a free 30 day trial: https://carnivore.diet/join/ Book a Carnivore Coach: https://carnivore.diet/book-a-coach/ Carnivore Shirts: https://merch.carnivore.diet Subscribe to our Newsletter: https://carnivore.diet/subscribe/ . ‪#revero #shawnbaker #Carnivorediet #MeatHeals #HealthCreation   #humanfood #AnimalBased #ZeroCarb #DietCoach  #FatAdapted #Carnivore #sugarfree  ‪

E171: Vertical Farming in Qatar: Promise & Challenges

The Leading Voices in Food

Today, we're exploring an agricultural innovation in the state of Qatar in Western Asia. Qatar is a wealthy, densely populated country located on the Northeast coast of the Arabian peninsula and leads the world in liquified natural gas exports. But the country's desert climate is harsh and the agriculture there is challenging. That's where shipping containers, artificial light and vertical farming techniques come into play. Our guest today is horticulturalist Mohamed Hassouna from the Qur-anic Botanic Garden in Qatar. He and his partners at the University of Arizona are developing a shipping container vertical farming model as a way to expand local food production. Interview Summary   So first let's set the stage for our listeners. Could you describe the agricultural challenges in Qatar given the country's dry climate?   Thank you for your introduction. Qatar, as other countries located in the Arabia peninsula and also in the Arabian states, are facing very harsh weather conditions. Particularly in Qatar, the weather here is hot desert weather characterized by sparse precipitations and high summer temperature experienced with high humidity, high solar radiation and poor soil additionally to strong winds. And this limits the agriculture sector to the months of October to April. Every year, this is the agriculture season here from October to April then the temperature is fine and can allow for producing vegetables. Also the land, the Arab land, suitable for agriculture is very limited. The last inventory here in the state estimated that there is only 60,000 hectares available for the agriculture sector. Also, we have a challenge with water. Water scarcity. The agriculture sector here in Qatar consumes 90% of the available water for the state. A big challenge is also that the agriculture sector consume about 36% of the available water in the aquifer. And as I told you, we have very minimum amount of rain every year. It's about 80 millimeters on average, every year. So production of agriculture in Qatar is difficult.   Well, the picture you paint is really striking and I can imagine those challenges. So what role could your Botanic garden play in addressing food security in the country, closing the food security gap for communities, and also attending to the environment?   Yes! The Qur-anic Botanic Garden is an active member in the community development sector in Qatar Foundation. It takes the issue of community awareness and education from school students to housewife to training even professionals to engage in the investment in agriculture. We established at the Qur-anic Botanic Garden an extra curriculum educational program for school students - from early stage to especially secondary schools students - to learn about the challenges of food security in Qatar, and what are the technologies they can learn. Students are leading the future here in Qatar. Without students being aware about the challenges facing the food security and the agriculture production, we cannot guarantee a future outlook of food security. Also the Qur-anic Botanic Garden has been partnered with Qatar Development Bank, and this is the official bank assigned to develop industry like also agriculture sector. So, anyone from Qatar who would like to take a loan to invest in the agriculture sector, we have the mission to train them on the latest technology of horticulture practices. They can use or they can establish greenhouses or they can establish other modern system for a production of vegetables. Either in their homes or in farms outside. Also Qur-anic Botanic Garden established a hotline for household people. There is now community farming in Qatar. People would like to plant their own vegetables in their home. The hotline is answering all their inquiries about seed selections, seedlings, how to prepare soil, how to make pesticides.   So let's talk a little more deeply now about vertical farming. Can you describe what that is?   Vertical farming involves growing crops in controlled indoor environments with precise lab nutrients and temperatures. In vertical farming, plants are stacked in a layers that may reach several storage unit stories - from personal community scale vegetables or herbal growing to vast building for commercial production of a wide range of crops. Due to the pressure for agriculture land, this makes us look to maximization for food production. Model technology like vertical farming is increasingly something we are turning to for greater crop yield.   I'm envisioning in my mind what the vertical farming could look like. And I'm thinking that in order to produce enough food say to feed a population, you need an awful lot of containers and an awful lot of technology to accompany those containers. Can that be done on a large enough scale?   Before we answer this, we need to go through the pro and cons for vertical farming. If we can speak first about advantages of vertical farming, we can say that vertical farming can ensure crop production year round in desert harsh weather regions like Qatar or other countries in the Arabian Peninsula. And also a controlled growing condition in a vertical farm allow production without chemical pesticides used when needed to deal with any problems from insects. Also, because crops in vertical farming are growing under controlled environmental conditions, they are safe from extreme weather events, such as drought, high temperature, severe winds that also we are facing here. Hydroponic growing techniques used in vertical farming use about 70% less of water than normal agriculture. So, growing the crops indoor reduces the use of tractors and other machinery that also produce a lot of CO2 and this is could be a climate friendly industry. So this is some advantage behind vertical farming that can give us strong signal to say yes, vertical farming can feed a lot of people around the world. Especially in the area that have these two main challenges, availability of vertical soil and a scarcity of water.   Oh, it's so interesting to hear you speak about this. So it sounds like you're optimistic that the technologies can continue to develop and that the vertical farming approach could really help contribute to national food security in your country. But so what do you think are the main opportunities there and what do you think the main challenges are?   Thank you for this question, Kelly. Indeed, I'm optimistic about this industry. Cost of land and building for vertical farming is not easy and it's not also available for all countries and for all people. It needs solar isolation, it needs air conditioners. It needs precise lighting. It needs operation computers. So it needs also specific types of nutrients to be introduced in the cycle of production for fertilization. Here, you bring all the inputs of production cycle. In what you add to the water or to directly to the plants. So the cost is high on the energy side also. You use high amount of energy at a time we are calling everyone to reduce the use of energy and avoid production of CO2. Also, you're aware of expansion of organic agriculture everywhere in the world. So, there are now questions about vertical farming certification. How we can certify or how we can consider merging between organic agriculture and vertical farming. As I said, we use all chemical nutrients in vertical farming to provide the plant with sufficient amount of all of other nutrients required for production. In this case, organic agriculture certification cannot be applied. And scientists in USDA and FAO and many other organization are looking to find a way they can provide a product from vertical farming certified under organic agriculture systems. Two points now, the limited number of crop species in vertical farming. Also, you cannot produce these tall plants that you can grow everywhere or creeping plants that grow everywhere in the field, in the natural field. So you are limited with this layers of a production. So mainly you produce leaves and produce and herbal plants. So we have limited number of crops. Still, also pollination. In natural, we have a bees that make pollinations for the production of vegetables, even for fruits, every, everything. But here, we doesn't have a pollination so we need to go with artificial pollination and this also extra cost to have a special type of bees that you need to put inside the glass houses or inside the building you produce in to secure pollination to complete the cycle of production.   Bio   Mohamed Hassouna is a Horticulturist at the Qur'anic Botanic Garden (QBG), a member of the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development. He joined Qatar Foundation in late 2010. He guides and supervises agricultural laborers, coordinating work schedules and performing evaluations, and prescribes fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and other compounds required for plant care and development. And, he contributes to QBG's continual education-based conservation programs targeting the Qatari community, especially in the fields of food security, forestation and plant propagation.

#065:  Bernward Geier, the former longtime director of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM), fills us in on organic's progress outside of the US, where exciting wins are gaining momentum. The first of a two-part interview, this episode covers good news from Europe, along with many thoughts about US farmers' struggles with the USDA's limiting hold on the National Organic Program.Bernward Geier  is the former director of IFOAM (The International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements), a role which he held for 18 years.  He is the current director of COLABORA - Let's Work Together,  a nonprofit focused on bridging the overlap in sustainability movements between agricultural and ecological organizations. Bernward serves as a board member for Vandana Shiva's organization Navdanya, and is also a celebrated author, filmmaker, and speaker.

Our add-on food label distinguishes soil-grown fruits and vegetables from hydroponically-raised produce, and pasture-raised meat, milk, and eggs from products harvested from animals in horrific confinement (CAFOs - confined animal feeding operations).To find a Real Organic farm near you, please visit:https://www.realorganicproject.org/farmsWe believe that the organic standards, with their focus on soil health, biodiversity, and animal welfare were written as they should be, but that the current lack of enforcement of those standards is jeopardizing the ability for small farms who adhere to the law to stay in business. The lack of enforcement is also jeopardizing the overall health of the customers who support the organic movement; customers who are not getting what they pay for at market but still paying a premium price. And the lack of enforcement is jeopardizing the very cycles (water, air, nutrients) that Earth relies upon to provide us all with a place to live, by pushing extractive, chemical agriculture to the forefront.If you like what you hear and are feeling inspired, we would love for you to join our movement by becoming one of our 1,000  Real Friends:https://www.realorganicproject.org/real-organic-friends/To read our weekly newsletter (which might just be the most forwarded newsletter on the internet!) and get firsthand news about what's happening with organic food, farming and policy, please subscribe here:https://www.realorganicproject.org/email/
