Bobby Gill on How Cows Can Save the World - Debunking Vegans with Regenerative Agriculture

Bobby Gill - Peak Human Podcast


Listen on


Bobby leads development and communications for the Savory Institute - a global non-profit facilitating the large-scale regeneration of the world’s grasslands to address the root cause of food, water, and climate security. Since 2009, the Savory Institute has influenced management on over 39 million acres of desertifying grassland through its global network of 50 regional Hubs that train and equip farmers, ranchers, and pastoralist communities to utilize the land-regenerating potential of Holistic Management within their cultural and ecological context.

Savory’s new Land to Market program and Ecological Outcome Verification protocol connect verified regenerative supply to philosophically-aligned industries, bringing awareness and accessibility to products whose ecological footprint are a net positive for the planet.

We have products such as primal ground beef that includes liver, heart, kidney, and spleen for all the amazing nutrients and none of the hassle or taste you may not be used to. That’s at We ship boxes straight to you and have free shipping options. We also have biltong if you want grass finished meat on the go. This is a traditional South African meat snack that’s air dried, soft, and delicious. We have body care products made from beef tallow and only a couple other natural ingredients. We also have seasonings to go along with these wonderful products and make cooking that much easier. Make a custom box today at and take advantage of the free shipping options.

That’s how these interviews are all possible along with all the other content we produce on youtube and social media. Thanks for supporting the ranchers, my other producers, and my team. The other way you can take advantage of this win-win-win situation is at where we have the Sapien Tribe. It’s a private members community where you get the extended show notes for these podcasts, discounts on NoseToTail products, zoom calls with Dr. Gary and myself, and a lot more. There’s also the Sapien Program if you’d like some help making a lifestyle change. Go to to find out more. Now onto the show!
