For more than 9 years On Pasture has been an online subscription magazine with a primary focus on grazing and was targeted towards graziers, a creation produced by publisher and editor Kathy Voth. Kathy retired on September 5, 2022 and has made all the past articles available for free. There is an abundant treasure of helpful information available about forages, soil health, animal health and more. The library of articles available covers a broad spectrum of animals including cows, horses, sheep, goats, pigs, chickens and more.
From the website:
I was inspired to create On Pasture by a very uninspiring speech. A scientist was describing the results of his research to a room full of graziers and though what he’d learned was something very helpful to them, his scientific explanations were not reaching them.
Almost every week for the last nine and a half years, On Pasture has translated science and experience into practices graziers can use. We’ve also done some myth-busting from time to time. Is keyline plowing a helpful practice? Does raw milk and compost tea really grow more grass? Can grazing really sequester more carbon in the soil? What about soil balancing and brix measurement? These are just a few of the practices we’ve covered with an eye towards helping you keep more money in your pocket.
There are now over 2,500 articles in the On Pasture library. It’s a great resource for graziers and one that I’d like to make available for the long-term.
