Western Landowners Alliance published a document titled Conservation Economics on Western Working Lands in February. The document showcases the economics behind conservation on working lands, which is opposite the thought of preservation as an act of conservation.
The document, written by Cole Mannix and Leslie Allison, contains valuable info-graphics and tables that aide one’s understanding of how agriculture has changed over the years. This preface allows the reader to understand the economics behind working lands and what the future looks like for conservation. The publication covers a variety of topics, from policy that impacts private landowners and public land and wildlife interests, food processing plants, soil health, and production efficiency.
