Podcast: How trees can increase livestock’s welfare and productivity

ORC’s Senior Livestock Researcher Lindsay Whistance features on a fascinating recent Regenerative Agroforestry Podcast.

Through Lindsay’s extensive knowledge of silvopasture, she enables us to see agroforestry from the animal’s perspective. Trees can provide livestock with shelter, food, medicine and even encourage social interactions between animals. These benefits are not only important to provide livestock with a stimulating and pleasant environment but they also reduce sources of stress and increase the productivity of the herd. The discussion focuses on cows but anyone considering to integrate livestock and trees will find this conversation fascinating and full of data.
