One of the good things about the On Pasture community is since there are so many of you, there’s probably someone out there who has the same problem you have. Even better, they may have already found a solution! So this week, we’re celebrating our well-read, very smart Community by sharing some reader questions we’ve gotten and asking for your help finding solutions. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section. If you have questions of your own, please send them to us in an email and we’ll share them in future editions of “On Pasture Readers Have Questions.”
Andy rents a couple of small farms, but there are no facilities for his hair sheep. He wonders if there are any good ideas out there for an affordable, portable corral system. Ideally, it would be something you could store in or on your livestock trailer. Any suggestions?
How do you find a mentor?
Some organizations build mentoring into what they do, like the North Dakota Grazing Lands Coalition, and the Maryland Grazers Network. Some folks build their mentoring group as described here by Chip Hines in “Intelligent Groups Make Innovations Easier.”
What are your tips for finding a mentor? What makes for a good mentor relationship? Would you be willing to be a mentor?
If you have a question for your On Pasture Community, do send it on! We’d like questions and answers from readers to be a regular feature.
