A Bold Partnership to Advance Research

Please Join Us April 4
Arizona State University Barrett and O’Connor Center Event Pavilion
1800 I St NW, Washington DC 20006

Join Arizona State University, the Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research and McDonald’s to celebrate a new grant supporting Multi-Paddock Grazing (AMP) research. AMP grazing involves strategically rotating cattle through large pastures to drive dense grazing and allow for long periods of recovery for the land.

With support from McDonald’s and the Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research, a research team led by Peter Byck of Arizona State University is working to quantify how AMP grazing impacts farm and ranch productivity and measure the impact of production practices on natural resources.

Join us to learn more about this  research’s main question: can AMP grazing improve farm productivity, soil health and farmer well-being?
Light refreshments will be served.
