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.

    Betsey and I always lead our few cows into new paddocks and walk the perimeter with them and tell them how fortunate they are to have all this good food. They usually follow, take a nibbles and pay us for the guided service by plopping a donation on the ground or a offering a urinary libation.

    Perfect illustration at top and analogy!

    McDonald’s probably won’t continue to fund onpasture.com after being compared to locoweed and lupines. 🙂 But you may pick up Tim Horton’s.

    I think I “get” it: If you usually eat at McDonald’s don’t eat Big Macs at Tim Hortons? OK, that’s not exactly the analogy but I can’t think of anything else except. . . don’t order McDonald’s chicken if you are at KFC?
