WHAT IS CARBON NEUTRALITY?
and other questions
Towards responsible farming practices...
Perfectly suited to the climate of Abitibi-Ouest, cattle production alone represents more than half of the agricultural activity in the region. The development and adoption of new practices aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions are essential in the fight against climate change and for the sustainability of our rural communities.
Here are the key practices that allow us to decrease the environmental footprint of our production:
Extended grazing season
Reduction of fossil fuel usage
What is agroforestry?
Agroforestry involves integrating trees into agricultural systems. In addition to being beneficial for biodiversity and carbon storage, trees also enhance field productivity and animal comfort.
Carbon stock of grasslands and pastures
The soil of permanent grasslands and pastures can store up to 80 tons of carbon per hectare* in the form of organic matter.
Is it possible on a large scale?
Every farm is unique. Écoboeuf is a small-scale experiment to develop and test responsible agricultural practices. This size allows us to offset our emissions through recognized means if the results are not conclusive.
Can a farm like yours be carbon-neutral forever?
After several decades, the ecosystem eventually reaches its maximum carbon storage capacity. It is therefore crucial to evaluate all solutions for reducing emissions.
What are the main health benefits of your meat?
A better omega-3/omega-6 ratio, which promotes a healthy cardiovascular system.

Why does grass-fed beef fat have a yellow tint?
Because it contains approximately 7 times more vitamin A than grain-fed beef. Grass-fed diet is rich in carotenoids, natural pigments synthesized by plants responsible for yellow, orange, and red coloration.
