As you head into winter, (I’m not – it’s 100º here today) I wanted to remind you of one of my old snowboarding lessons: “Keep your knees bent.” For a snowboarder bent knees mean you can absorb and ride over any bumps you hit along the way. For a grazier, this means being flexible and adjusting to whatever comes your way.
My good friend Troy Bishopp has an excellent example of what that looks like in this article about how he flexed to deal with unexpected weather events during his fall/winter grazing season. So, as you consider how you’re going to feed your livestock and care for your pastures this winter, check out Troy’s article for a little flexibility inspiration.
Thanks for reading!
