Grazing planning doesn’t have to be daunting! Join us for a one-day intensive on increasing soil health, land productivity and profitability with adaptive grazing management. We’ll see how these principles are being applied at El Sueño Ranch and learn how to read the conditions of the land with simple monitoring techniques in order to assess forage and livestock needs. Then, we’ll translate these observations into a grazing plan to calculate stock density, animal moves and adequate recovery time for the land.
