About the author

Publisher, Editor and Author

Kathy worked with the Bureau of Land Management for 12 years before founding Livestock for Landscapes in 2004. Her twelve years at the agency allowed her to pursue her goal of helping communities find ways to live profitably AND sustainably in their environment. She has been researching and working with livestock as a land management tool for over a decade. When she's not helping farmers, ranchers and land managers on-site, she writes articles, and books, and edits videos to help others turn their livestock into landscape managers.


  1. Karen says:

    We have been setting up systems like this for many years. Most of the large ranchers use an x3or x6 with a 30 watt or 80 watt regulated solar panel. Very reliable and trust worthy systems.

  2. Jim Gerrish says:

    I just want to point out that it is the ‘and family’ who deal with our product planning and sales, not Jim Gerrish.

    If you want to know how to put a solar fence charger system together for specific application, you want to talk to Galen Gerrish, not Jim. If you call me, I will tell you to ‘talk to Galen’.
    He is the one who knows the products best.

    If you want to know how to best build a fence, talk to Ian Gerrish, not Jim. Ian is the one who has taken fence construction technique far beyond what I taught him as a boy.

    If you want to seed a pasture or a cover crop, talk to Dawn Gerrish. She is the one who knows the current best varieties and routinely plans mixes for all corners of the country with specificity that Jim overlooks.

    I appreciate the reference to ‘Jim Gerrish and family’ in the article, but it is the ‘and family’ who makes the details of our business work.

    Jim Gerrish
