Semi-arid pastures in northern Mexico and the dry and wet tropics in the west and south offer an excellent opportunity to develop solutions, as they harbor a unique degree of biodiversity and are threatened by the intensive use of land and desertification.
The Mexican Fund for the Conservation of Nature and its partners seek to formalize the concept of regenerative livestock in the country to protect its extraordinary natural capital. This can be achieved through the empowerment of livestock farmers in Mexico, by helping them become managers of their natural resources. At the same time, they seek to maintain sustainable livelihoods through the implementation of regenerative farm rearing practices.
Your collaboration will make the difference for the pastures
The FMCN, in collaboration with its collaborating partners, seeks to expand the implementation and impact of regenerative livestock to 1.5 million hectares by strengthening and mobilizing knowledge networks in the livestock community.
The FMCN designs financial mechanisms that make viable the investment in the long-term sustainable operation of a cattle ranch and, by integrating these properties in the broader framework of the conservation of the land and natural resources of the country, make this a source important of pride for many producers.
Through the development of capacity within the Mexican livestock community, a community of practice and a generative network is created, which fosters a culture of long-term economic sustainability and environmental stewardship.
In addition, FMCN seeks to integrate private and productive properties into Mexico's national conservation strategy and, through a proof of concept, strengthen the policies that support biological connectivity on private lands throughout the country.

Traditional livestock does not give rest to the grasslands that need to grow new shoots. And the plants end up dying. On the other hand, the absence of grazing animals also degrades the pasture.
In this context, regenerative systems offer a new model of ecologically responsible and sustainable livestock production that reduces the environmental impact of traditional methods.
Regenerative agriculture and livestock are models of food production based on the restoration of the natural cycles of nutrients, energy, and water of the ecosystems lost after decades of mismanagement. The model of regenerative livestock combines several different methodologies, including the holistic livestock of Allan Savory and the rational grazing of André Voisin.
With more than 15 years of experience of innovative and progressive breeders in Mexico, the proposed theory can be used as a tool for conservation and empowerment for the livestock sector, so that the environment can be helped while their businesses prosper.
