Dr Peter Ballerstedt – Ruminant Reality: Diet, Human Health and the Environment

Dr. Peter Ballerstedt uses his expertise in Agronomy to offer an interesting counter argument to the claim that ruminant agriculture is destroying the environment.

Here’s the latest release from Low Carb Breckenridge 2017 conference.

Presentation slides are available here to download in PDF format

Dr. Ballerstedt earned his bachelors degree at the University of Kentucky and his graduate degree at Oregon State University. He has an extensive background in forage production, utilization and forage-based livestock production systems and was the forage extension specialist at Oregon State University from 1986 until 1992.

Peter’s personal experience has led him to re-examine human diet and health. What he has learned doesn’t agree with the advice given for the past several decades. This new understanding combined with his forage background has given him an increased passion for the key to true social, economic and ecological sustainability – ruminant animal production systems – the source of butter, red meat, and cheese!

    I’d love to go deeper into the key takeaways from this excellent presentation. One main point I took was from the discussion/data on calorie percentage of protein in the diet, and the 4:1 ratio of Omega 6 vs. Omega 3. In both cases, the point was that percentages aren’t as important as the particular quantity a person needs. This makes sense to me, but I’m not sure how we should determine the specific minimmum individual values for each person. I know there are a few different sources for these guidelines, but they are homogenized averages, not person-specific. Will we ever (or do we already) have a way to tailor specific macro & micro nutrients to individuals?

    Thanks again to Dr. Gerber & team for continuing to bring us great information!
