SARE's animated video series highlights some common practices farmers and ranchers across the country can use to improve profitability, quality of life, and environmental stewardship.

Farmers and researchers are working together to develop and implement agricultural practices that increase profitability, quality of life and environmental stewardship. SARE’s new series of short animated videos illustrate how producers can improve the success and health of their farms by implementing sustainable practices. The eight “What is Sustainable Agriculture?” videos are useful and engaging for audiences with a variety of educational backgrounds and complement other educational resources well.
