I was honored to be invited to be part of a team put together by the King Ranch Institute for Ranch Management tasked with providing information to ranchers about carbon contracts. As part of our work, we drafted a white paper to help explain what carbon is, how it can be stored in the soil, how this market for selling carbon credits has arisen, who are the parties involved in the contracts, and what production, legal, and economic risks should be considered.

Additionally, last week the Institute hosted a free webinar discussing these issues. The first hour was presentations from each of the paper co-authors, followed by an hour of Q&A with participants. I thought there was some great information shared and fantastic questions answered. To listen to the recorded webinar, click here.
