‘Carbon Cowboys’ explores sustainable farming methods

“Carbon Cowboys” is a documentary series in 10 “paddocks,” directed by Peter Byck. It tells the stories of cattle ranchers who work with nature instead of fighting her, creating healthy soils, ecosystems, animals and food in the process. Can these farmers help solve the climate crisis as well?

On Friday, June 12, at 7:30 p.m., Arizona PBS presents one of these chapters, “Herd Impact.” The film introduces husband and wife ranchers Emry Birdwell and Deborah Clark, who have been going against the grain of North Texas ranching for decades – hiding their ability to raise many, many more cattle per acre than any of their neighbors.

Explore more about “Carbon Cowboys” here, and watch “Arizona Horizon” at 5:30 or 10 p.m. on Thursday, June 11 to hear Byck discuss the project.
