Farmers and Ranchers Growing Together in 2018

The On Pasture community is all about learning and growing together. With that in mind, we’re kicking off 2018 with some articles that help us do just that. Here’s what we’ve got for you:

Matt Bomgardner shares his lessons learned and changes he made as he transitioned to pastured dairy.

Will Kearney has been looking at the prairie as a whole ecosystem and how our property boundaries affect prairie health and our success. In Part 4 this week he describes how cooperating across property lines, and a Stockshare, could make agriculture a winning proposition.

Working across boundaries is also part of working with fire to reduce brush, improve pastures, and create firesafe landscapes. Learn how to “Fire Up Your Beef Production” with this introduction to the benefits of fire. We’ll be covering this topic further in coming months.

We’re also celebrating one of our On Pasture authors, Troy Bishopp, who’s been advocating for grass farmers for over 3 decades. Read about his service award, and get links to his grazing charts and instructions for using them here.

We’re really looking forward to this new year and all it could bring. If you have thoughts and suggestions about how On Pasture can make it a better year for you, do let us know!

Thanks for reading. We love being part of your team!

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.
