    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.
