Leverage – It’s Not Just for Moving Heavy Rocks

A lever to move a rock, a pry bar to move break off something stubborn. We’ve all done it, right? We’re “leveraging” an existing resource to do more than we could have done on our own.

That’s what this week’s articles are about – finding ways to hit our goals, and make our lives better, by using just what we have available. To start, lets look at the resources we have and think about them in new ways. Our animals are a product we’re raising. But, if we think of them as partners in our effort to improve pastures and soil, we can tweak how we work together so that as they’re out their grazing and growing, they’re also managing vegetation for our benefit and theirs.

The final article in the collection (before the funnies) provides some additional resources you have available that you may not have known about. I hope the articles as a whole will inspire you to look around you and see what else you can use to expand your options.

Thanks for reading!

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
