Excellent Reference for Livestock Owners
Very good primer for livestock owners who wish to understand the relationships between ranch fiscal health, family lifestyle requirements, and proper grazing management to conserve and improve grass, soil and water resources and react to natural pressures such as draught. The approach is holistic, meaning that it takes into account the entire ranch operation as a whole, and does not exploit or favor one component of the operation over all the other components of the operation. Of greatest value to me is being able to fully integrate social, financial, animal, land, soil, water, and weather aspects of our chosen occupation to make a good plan, wise choices, and good decisions as things change.
I love the progress made in regard to HRM - and I find that many of the concepts in the books lend themselves well to other aspects of life. Glad I ran across that Ted talk!
We're glad you did as well, thank you for all that you do!
This handbook really spells things out on a practical side. Farmers, ranchers, stewards I know you want answers and information. Look no further this and the accompanying Holistic Management book are your one stop shop to a healthier brighter future. Thank you Savory for all you have inspired!
