Reading those references doesn't mean that you have to agree with them.  :)
Those references are from paleo enthusiasts looking for an excuse to
farm animals for their steaks.

Sustainable agriculture involves things like crop rotation and
recycling vegetable waste back into the land. Over-application of
animal waste as fertiliser causes pollution problems outside the
farming area.

There may be a case for grazing some animals on very poor pasture
land, but not as a major source of food production.
