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.

    So much is owed to so few who have the courage to share. If you ask a 60 year old practicing farmer you will get a worthy reply as they too are still keen to learn. They know what the meaning of ‘enough’ is and from my own experience, so few ask the ‘why’ question. Curiosity is what centurions have in common.

    Hi Kathy,

    We need an article on the reality of working with the NRCS. Just about every publication on farming recommends contacting the NRCS for assistance. So far, I have never seen an article explaining the difficulties of accessing this assistance, i.e. how long it will take(years, in my case) how much paper work is required, limitations on available practices, the waiting list for technical service providers etc., etc.
    If I had known this ahead of time, it would have saved me lots of time and frustration. Maybe my experience is not widespread, but I suspect it is the norm.

    Very well said, and I totally agree!

    So often “zealot” thinkers are marginalized by the “experts”. Our voice is silenced and the process of discovering new solutions is lost on the whole. Intimidation is the vehicle of saving the old way that doesn’t work given a new set of parameters. Why do they get away with it? How do we challenge without using an editorial?
