See how a researcher and his family restored soil health, native grasses and diverse forages to abused and neglected land. Today, herds of sheep, goats and now bison continue the process as they graze under regenerative management.
Overgrazing can cause poor forage and livestock production, wildlife habitat loss, soil erosion and other problems.
Weigh the pros and cons of livestock as a tool for soil disturbance on your ranch, and then put the animals to work.
Adding additional species to your ranch’s managed grazing can help use previously ungrazeable acreage and diversify your ranch’s income. Here’s how to do it.
Consider them an input — the tool that allows you to harvest grass.
Adaptive grazing with more than one species of livestock can multiply regenerative benefits, shape your landscape and add income to your operation.
Developing a herd of “regenerative cows” will give you efficiency and help you be profitable while leaving the land better than you found it.
Tips to help you manage your cow herd through a winter blast.
High stock density grazing has intentional impacts on the soils, forages and ultimately livestock production.
For most cattle producers, culling cows is not an easy task. However, some culling needs to be done each year to maintain optimal productivity.
