Holistic Planned Grazing Workshop

This 3-day workshop is designed for grazing planning beginners and for those wanting a refresher in the basics. Participants learn how to plan and manage where livestock are herded in both the growing and non-growing seasons, so that animals remain healthy, safe, and productive, even as they work to heal the land. When more grass grows, livestock have more to eat, more soil is covered, and more rain remains in the soil to feed boreholes and non-growing season river flow.
