John Marble, another of On Pasture’s Writers in Residence, has been writing for On Pasture for a little over two years. He focuses on helping us take a new look at things we might take for granted. Examples include his thoughts on paddock design and moving livestock, and his article “From Minimal To Mob – Lifestyle and Economic Considerations for Designing your Grazing Program” where he gets us to think about how many times a month, week, or day our livestock really need to be moved. He’s also shared practical techniques for dealing with problems like slime in water tanks and making calving less stressful.
I’ve put John’s articles together under Special Collections, and also made the handout below that you can download, copy and share at conferences and workshops. I hope you’ll enjoy reading John’s past articles and will stay tuned for all the new ones to come in 2019!
