Moving Toward a Better Life With Grazing

Welcome to the On Pasture Virtual Grazing Conference!

One of the great things about going to a grazing conference is that getting out of your regular routine shakes up your brain so you think more creatively and come up with some really great solutions. And while I can’t invite you to an in-person event, I can put together some really great articles that I hope will do some shaking up for you.

I think the series of articles I’ve put together for this “conference” are some of the best work we produced at On Pasture. They’re not about the usual “doing” kind of stuff. They’re about the thinking stuff that, if we do it, can result in more successful businesses and lives. I hope they help you imagine and build a grazing life and business that makes you truly happy. After all, that’s the only reason I created On Pasture in the first place.

Keynote Address

Let’s welcome John Marble and Troy Bishopp. Both have something in common with many On Pasture readers. They expanded their grazing operations by renting pastures and grazing more cattle. But now, they’re rethinking all the busyness that came with their expansion.

Right-Sizing Your Grazing Operation – What Works Best?

This Week’s Breakout Sessions

Join Troy for a discussion about how a major life event changed how he thinks about his grazing decisions. I think his experiences and ideas will resonate with you.

What’s a Grazing Decision Really Worth?

Time, and the limited amount we all have, is at the root of John Marble’s thoughts about changes he is making to his grazing business. In addition to talking about why he’s changing, he offers some ideas for next steps that you’ll find useful as well.

In Week Two, Jenn Colby and Troy Bishopp talk us through how they got to their “vision” of their businesses and we’ll give you some resources to help you do the same.

And in Week Three, we finish off with some examples and input from farmers and ranchers who took the next step: working on goals that get you where you want to be.

And if you don’t want to attend this session of the virtual conference, just head over to the rest of the On Pasture library. Here’s how to find what you might be looking for:

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.


  1. We have been passing word to ranchers and farmers and some say they heard of you but never checked. Now they are. Even non-ag preppers are getting interested! Knowledge is power, and you empower all of us. Much thanks, Doctor! niio
