In this week’s episode, research intern Matt Styslinger explains how small scale livestock can not only help to improve diets, livelihoods, and the environment, but also how they can help to maintain and rebuild communities. Livestock have the ability to not only provide milk and meat, which generates income, but they also provide manure, which can be used as fertilizer as well as biogas for cooking.
