Our robust list of qualifying conservation practices deliver public benefits — including soil health, clean water, water conservation, wildlife conservation and climate mitigation — valued at more than $100 per acre or animal unit.

Livestock feed management is a practice that provides robust environmental benefits. It reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 0.6 metric tons per animal unit, which is worth $31 per animal unit. In addition, the practice can also deliver up to nearly $680 in air quality benefits, reaching $172-$705 per animal unit.
