About the author

Will Kearney is a rancher living in Columbus, Tx with his wife Laura Dorsey. His primary focus is thinking about how to combine economics and ecology on the family ranch without screwing any one of those things up. He has worked on ranches in Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas in a variety of climates and with a diversity of different landowners. He has learned a lot from watching and paying attention to his dogs, his horses, and his cattle. Even more from books. And almost nothing from people who have all the answers.

    Will How do you feel about incorporating goats to eat the brush species that come in. A good boundary fence with 8000 volts kept out bobcats, coyotes and dogs in my experience. There is mixed research on letting goats roam but rotationally grazing cattle. I grew up on Coleman, TX and worked in lots of the state before moving to Iowa. Back home in 2015.
