About the author

I graduated from West Virginia University in 2012 with a degree in livestock management, and a minor in agribusiness. While at WVU, I won a statewide entrepreneurship competition with a patentable device I designed for video-assisted cattle artificial insemination. I then spent six months interning for grazing expert Greg Judy in Missouri. Now I run Rhinestone Cattle Consulting, helping new and experienced farmers build profitable mob grazing beef operations. I offer artificial insemination, electric fence building and graphic design services too. I'll travel anywhere in the 48 states for on-farm consulting and speaking at conferences.

  1. I’m a 28 year old female rancher. I am the project manager of a contract grazing outfit in the Bay Area of California working with about 2,000 head of sheep and goat for vegetation management and fire abatement projects.

    I just wanted to say that I appreciate your work, Meg and find solidarity in being a young agrarian. I’m in the works to find pasture myself and these articles are very helpful.

    Thank you and I hope we get to meet some day!
