I'm not sure how or where to post this. I love to read here, but haven't posted much so if this needs to be moved please move it or direct me.
This is an article by a guy who may be the most progressive rancher in our area. We feel fortunate to have gotten to know him and to buy beef from him. Due to pronghorn hunting he's allowed us to wander on his 14,000 acre "little" ranch. He has won various awards for rangeland management.
How do you make a ranch a top producer? Heal the local ecosystem!
One caution I should mention is to be wary of awards. I am not in any way saying Grady is wrong in his approach, but we have won awards that now looking back, were absolutely insane to even do for our farm, yet we won awards for those stupid practices.
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars. Tiny ad:
