If you haven’t noticed already, this summer is different. Or, as one weather person put it recently, “This is not your Grandmother’s summer.” Floods, heat domes, smoke from forest fires filling the air – it’s exactly what scientists have been warning us was coming for us for decades.
We’ve been warming up to this for awhile (no pun intended), and I’ve written a lot about the kinds of adaptations that might work best for graziers. So this week, in addition to the article collection, I’m recommending an article by John Marble from July of 2021.
In it, you’ll read about his observations in plant growth and how he altered his grazing program to better match what was happening. It’s an excellent example of how long-term observation can help you adjust to new circumstances. I hope it’s helpful to you as you work through this summer’s challenges. Click here to find it.
