Marillion – Pioneering Regenerative Agriculture Offsets

Marillion have secured exclusive 50 year rights to large ranch land holdings to implement the regenerative agriculture practices and investments.

Regenerative agriculture offsets are an innovative approach to combat climate change and promote sustainable farming practices.

Marillion regenerative offsets program focuses on enhancing grass cover and creating valuable carbon sinks. By investing in this program, you contribute to carbon sequestration, combat climate change, and support the restoration of degraded land.

Marillion Regenerative Farming Management Intensive Grazing

Degenerative Grazing Practices (DGP)

This is what has been done traditionally in the beef industry . Natural grazing involves vast stretches of land where the cattle are not rotated, leading to overgrazing. Grass is eaten all the way to the ground with cattle often pulling the roots out leading to diminished grass cover, depleted soil nutrients, poor water penetration, increased run-off and soil erosion, eventually creating dust bowls.

Adaptive Multi-Paddock Grazing (AMP)

AMP rotates a large number of head across smaller paddocks for short periods forcing them to throughly graze all the edible species, not just their preferred plants resulting in more efficient use of the pasture. Increased numbers ensures that weeds are crushed and trampled and the manure is is scattered and trampled into the soil. Continuous rotation gives the grasses time to recover before being grazed to the ground.

Management Intensive Grazing (MIG) On Irrigated Pastures

Marillion is implementing MiG on its ranches. This includes efficient, water saving center pivots on a continuous intensive irrigated grazing system. A 40 hectare pivot has the capacity to carry 300 head of cattle on a twenty-day cycle, intensely grazing 10 hectares for five days before moving onto the next 10 hectares. Plants and grasses are grazed to 50%, being continuously naturally fertilized from the manure, which is trampled into the pasture and irrigated on a weekly cycle. Borehole water, solar pumps and solar electric fences control the movement of the cattle.

Marillion Regenerative Farming Ranch Farming

Regenerative Ranch Land Practicesband Results

Ranch lands managed according to regenerative agriculture principles can reverse climate change, return atmospheric carbon to the soil and improve the water cycle by rebuilding soil, organic matter and restoring degraded biodiversity. By utilizing photosynthesis in plants regenerative agriculture closes the carbon cycle, builds soil health and organic matter, promotes grazing resilience and produces nutrient dense grazing.

Renewal, Recovery, Replacement, And Repair of Ecosystems

High-intensity grazing , short-duration and frequent pasture rotations which can benefit soil health.

Reduced Paddock Sizes, Staged Bush Clearing and Grass Regeneration and Growth

Typically ,one beast per 30 hectares are grazed permanently in the paddock, with no rotation and little or no chance for the grass to recover. As the grazing is sparse and the cattle compete for the grass, cattle typically pull the roots out, killing off the grass, leaving the soil bare and exposed to erosion, increased run-off of rainfall, reduced carbon sink, and little chance of soil and nutrient regeneration.

Efficient, Well Managed Bush Clearance, Fenced Paddocks, Efficient Fire Guards and Access Roads

Marillion is implementing managed brush clearing. Trees with a trunk diameter in excess of 7” are not cleared, as leaf canopy is as important as dense grass cover for carbon sequestration, oxygen production, rainfall enhancement. The result is also less fire risk, better fire control, less burning, which leaves the soil exposed to the ever-increasing violent storms during the rainy season. With better fire control, less CO2 is produced from the seasonal bush fires and there is increased carbon sink, providing more dense grass cover.

Smaller Paddocks, Increased Head Per Ha, No Continuous Grazing, Shorter Intense Gazing, Frequent Rotation

Once the brush is cleared, Marillion implements the following: Three 500 hectare paddocks create one unit and the carrying capacity is increased from one head per 30 hectares continuous grazing, to one beast per hectare on an intense two-week grazing, four-week recuperation cycle, doubling carrying capacity from 50 head to 100 head per 1,500 hectare paddock. This will increase further as the paddocks continually regenerate through the increase of natural fertilization, increased carbon sink, better water penetration, less run off and decreased soil erosion.

Marillion Regenerative Farming – Feedlots Made Available to Farmers

Factory Farming Feelots, CO2/Methane Production Units

In factory farming feedlots, cattle are fed in cramped feedlot pens with over 150 head often packed into one hectare, for over 100 days at a time – no grazing, no shade and poor animal welfare. Feedstock mixtures consisting of GMO produced grains, steroids, excessive fertilizers, pesticides, large water and carbon footprints. Large amounts of methane and CO2 emissions are produced by the cattle in these feedlots, creating a massive carbon footprint.

Regenerative Open Paddock Feedlots with Regular Rotation Grass-Fed Cattle

Marillion employs regenerative feedlot systems -- feedlot paddocks in excess of ten hectares with 100 head of cattle per feedlot paddock, feed and water troughs evenly spaced throughout the feedlot paddock with shade areas for the cattle. Cattle are rotated on a weekly basis between three feedlot paddocks. The feedlots paddocks also become grazing paddocks, manure is trampled into the soil enhancing grass cover, water penetration, reducing soil erosion and the pens are a valuable carbon sink.

Grass-Fed Cattle Produced with Zero Emissions

Marillion will plant Bana (elephant) grass feed produced under solar power drip irrigation and pastures under efficient pivots , Cattle are feed with fresh grass supplemented with the feedlot paddock natural grazing, rotating weekly between the three feedlot paddocks.

Regenerative Communal Partnership

Marillion allows smallholders/cattle farmers access to ranch land for grazing and feedlots. Clearing the scrub increases grass cover, allowing the community to bring more cattle, while at the same time reducing cattle numbers in communal areas, which in turn reduces grazing pressure in the communal areas, thereby enhancing the regeneration of the communal grazing areas, reducing soil erosion, slowing down desertification and increasing carbon sink.

Regenerative Farming


The ranches acquired recently by Marillion have been neglected for over 30 years and thick thorn scrub, invasive species of trees and weeds have overrun them. Cattle carrying capacity of the ranches has decreased to one head per 30 hectares due to lack of grass cover from the over-grown scrub.

Tinder Box

Droughts are becoming more frequent and harsh. Bush fires are a common annual occurrence creating huge amounts of CO2. African brush does not die from fire but grows back even more vigorously and with greater density. The more fires, the thicker the brush becomes, the greater the fire risk.

Land Pressure, Over Grazing, Desertification

There is growing pressure on land availability and grazing for cattle leading to overgrazing, land degradation, excessive run off, soil erosion, increased carbon production and a decreased carbon sink.

Regenerative Partnership, Land Rehabilitation, Community Partnership, Land Availability

Regenerative partnership: communal cattle farmers given access to Marillion ranches for grazing. Clearing of the brush gives way to increased grass cover and increased grazing. Increased grass cover increases carbon absorption, increases cattle carrying capacity which intern increases natural fertilization of the soil, soil nutrients increases, water absorption increase due to less run off, less soil erosion, stimulating greater grass growth which in turn increases the carrying capacity of the land.

Charcoal Production, Reduction of Deforestation, Desert Encroachment,
Soil Erosion

The brush creates tons of potential fuel for intense bush fires, smoke pollution and increased carbon emissions. All brush cleared is processed into charcoal for communal cooking fuel use and for sale in the urban areas. This source of charcoal fuel decrease the chopping down of trees leading to deforestation, less grazing, increase soil erosion and less rainfall. This regenerative partnership not only increases the grazing on the ranches, but over time will also assist in regenerating the traditional communal area grass cover and reverse the encroachment of desertification.


Bio Char is an organic fertilizer used to increase the carbon content, structure and fertility of soils. Approximately fifty percent of all the brush cleared is too small to produce large enough pieces of charcoal and is turned into Bio Char which is collected and spread across the areas when the brush was cleared increasing the carbon content of the soil, increasing fertility and encouraging vigorous grass growth.
