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.

    Great article, Kathy. So glad to see it. I know Koger well. Her brother, Ed, also practices pbg in the Red Hills of southcentral-southwest Kansas. It has shown remarkable recovery of lesser prairie chickens and redcedar control which is a real menace. Thanks for publishing this.

    I think it’s the font, but the aerial photo caption looks like it says
    “one third bum sectors.” In Canada a bum is not a hobo, or a vagrant, or what my dad sometimes called me when I didn’t do my chores. . . . In Canada a “bum” is what in the U.S. we used to call a person’s butt. I believe they are divided into two sectors, not three.

    I wonder how they control these fires if there are gusts of wind?
