Interested In Rejuvenating Your Pastures?
May 17, 2017 | View PDF
Do you have a pasture(s) that is not performing? This sounds like some of the pasture around our ranch or some old CRP acres that are now in permanent pasture with water. So what do we do? You need to come and hear the great speaker we have coming to the open the gate workshop- rejuvenating soils, pastures, and profits in Wibaux, MT.
Greg and Jan Judy of Clark, Missouri run a grazing operation on 1620 acres of leased/owned land. Greg and Jan went from being nearly bankrupt in 1999 to paying off a 200 acre farm and house in three years with custom grazing on leased land and are completely debt free today. Today they own 4 farms and lease 12 additional farms. Greg is convinced the best way to get a poor pasture that is sod bound, with the lack of diversity, to perform is to employ high density grazing to jump start the soil life into a productive pasture.
The livestock they use in their planned grazing operation include grass genetic cow/calf, bred heifers, bulls and stockers along with a flock of hair sheep.
Greg wrote a book in 2001, entitled “no risk ranching, custom grazing on leased land”, which gives a complete breakdown on the methods they used to build their operation from scratch. In 2008 Greg wrote a second book “comeback farms, rejuvenating soils, pastures and profits with livestock grazing management”. Greg’s newest book covers the methods they use with holistic high density grazing, multi-species grazing, grass finishing animals, and eliminating costly input.
Greg has given numerous talks and schools all over the United States, New Zealand and Canada teaching the benefits of planned grazing, leasing land and multi-species grazing and custom grazing. The Judy’s website is: http://www.greenpasturefarms.net
