Grazing Principles – Our most easy to understand method of Why It Works.
Can’t go wrong with the series of equipment from both Gallagher and Speedrite. Both quality and assurance is why we use their products with ours to ensure success and productivity.
Soil Carbon Cowboys
In the Soil Carbon Cowboys video, featured below, filmmaker Peter Byck follows three cattle ranchers – Allen Williams from Mississippi, USA, Gabe Brown from North Dakota, USA, and Neil Dennis from Saskatchewan, Canada – whose innovative grazing strategies are redefining how cattle can be used to profitably improve the land.
The video discuss some of the most important benefits of rotational grazing – building organic matter through rotational grazing (carbon sequestration), increased erosion resistance, improved soil moisture retention, dramatic lowering of disease in the cattle herd, reduced fertilizer and pesticide needs, reduced labor and equipment costs, and all this accompanied by a dramatic increase in land productivity.
The video is also full of practical hands-on ideas, such as how to combine permanent and portable electric fences, what stocking densities work well during rotational grazing, and innovative ways to drive over single wire electric fences with your ATV without needing to build gates everywhere.

To conserve, protect and restore Canada’s freshwater ecosystems and their coldwater resources for current and future generations.
Since its incorporation in March 2010, the Canadian Forage and Grassland Association / Canadienne pour les Plantes Fourragères has been providing a national voice for all Canadians who produce hay and forage products and for those whose production is dependent upon forage/grassland production.
The emphasis in conventional agriculture has been to increase production using fossil fuel technology. Much of the energy used, personal stress and costs in farming and ranching come from fighting nature. We have found that economic and financial stability are seldom associated with maximum production. Working with nature results in fundamental improvements to the economic and biological health of the business and can dramatically improve the lifestyle of the people on the ranch.
