173: Does Regenerative Farming Lead to Better Meat?

Can better-raised beef (and even just meat in general), lead to better health? What about the impact of regenerative farming on livestock and ecosystems? Those are just a few of the topics we’ll cover in today’s interview with Eric Prener, from Rep Provisions, a direct-to-consumer company providing regeneratively raised meats. In our interview today, Eric and I will chat about how he grew up on the farm and started a career in the oil and gas industry before coming back to the farm to try his hand at regenerative ranching. We’ll also talk about how these regenerative practices are measured, why our diets have been worsened over the years, how Rep Provisions pivoted from shelf-stable products to fresh meats to meet consumer demand, and why nature actually needs cattle to graze (despite what crazies like the Impossible CEO have to say).
