We shared some tips on how to take the drudgery out of soil sampling, but maybe you want something even easier. How about smelling your soil? Here Ray Archuleta and Jon Sitka of the Natural Resources Conservation Service describe how you can get some information on your soil’s health just by sniffing in this episode of “Soil Health In A Minute.”

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.


  1. Kathy,

    Great new publication! I like the soil quality part at this time. Every article is helpful. We met a couple of years ago at the Nebraska Grazing Conference where you were a presenter.

    I had hoped to train a group of heifers to eat musk thistle this summer, but they were sold off because of the drought last summer and anticipated again this year of 2013.

    Keep up your good work. I appreciate your work and leadership.
