feeding livestock on forage
In this, our second chat with Bart Carmichael, rancher out of Faith SD, we quizzed Bart on his approach to year-round grazing where Bart walks us through why he aims to graze year-round, what he does to make this possible and what benefits he sees from this practice. Given the dry conditions experienced at the time of the podcast, the conversation also turned to drought; Bart is always planning for drought he agrees with fellow rancher Pat Guptill who says (paraphrased) “when we call it a drought plan, we get scared, a drought plan is nothing other than a forage plan”. We discussed a very interesting innovation with Bart, namely destocking without selling off his herd – how does that work? Find out in the podcast. Keep in mind that to be able to support year-round grazing, land needs good management, one of the keys to Adaptive Grazing management is long rest time coupled with high stocking densities. We highlight a quote from Bart in the first 30 seconds of the podcast where he says “I figured up last fall that 99% of my land that I'm in control of is in rest. You know, we're only ever on like 1% of it at any given time. So that way there's always something there and we graze it once and then give it plenty of time to recover and send down the roots and build up soil, and once the soi temperature is up, it's ready to grow grass...[even] in a drought”. More about Bart: Bart Carmichael and his wife Shannon run the Wedge Tent Ranch (https://www.wedgetentranch.com/) seed stock operation with their family just north of Faith, SD. Bart is also an educator at heart and is extremely active in the SD Grassland Coalition (see https://sdgrass.org/ ) .

Kelly Mulville's life has been guided by an awe and respect for the natural world and a deep appreciation for its beauty. This led him to want to learn how to farm in a way that protected or enhanced the natural world, and made him a better listener and observer of what made ecosystems work. Through his years of farming he has attempted to answer the question of how we can turn agriculture from one of the most destructive forces on the planet into the method we can use to repair that damage and restore biodiversity and health to ecosystems? Kelly's journey has led him to test various kinds of grazing-based viticulture in many contexts throughout the west and south-west US, and to ultimately build a vineyard system that incorporates animals year round in central California at Paicines Ranch. The work he is doing is laying the foundation for what I think will be the future of viticulture, and Kelly lays out the vision and principles that guide it. Kelly is working with vinifera that he basically doesn't have to spray because of the system he has implemented and his attention to soil health, biodiversity, and amazing new findings around SAP brix analysis that is revolutionizing our understanding of how we can prevent insect pest issues. We get into the details of the Watson trellising system he uses now to create a kind of vine forest rather than a vineyard, as well as how to potentially integrate sheep year round into an existing VSP trellis system, ground squirrel management, the ecology of birds in viticultural and agricultural systems, and the amazing return of an endangered species for which his vineyard is helping to provide desirable habitat. If you haven't heard of Kelly Mulville, or the work he's doing at Paicines Ranch, this is potentially revolutionary stuff. I could not be more impressed with Kelly's humble, passionate, and compassionate approach to viticulture. He grounds everything he does in science and real, detailed data, because he sees everything he has accomplished so far as just the beginning, and he wants others to be able to learn from and build upon this work to do even better. https://paicinesranch.com/ Sponsor: https://www.centralaswine.com/

Following Dirt Rich's previous episode, 57: Fundamentals of Adaptive Grazing with Jonathan Kilpatrick, we thought it would be a great time to revisit our conversation on Adaptive Multi-Paddock grazing with Jared Luhman and Doug Voss. If you enjoy Dirt Rich, consider supporting our work by becoming a member of SFA or donating at www.sfa-mn.org. ---------------------------------- Over the years of establishing and fine-tuning their management systems, grazing has become absolutely key in both Luhman's and Voss' cattle and dairy operations. Beyond rotational grazing, Adaptive Multi-Paddock grazing (or AMP) has improved the ecology of their farms--not to mention saved the time, energy, and expense of hauling around feed and other off-farm inputs--by modeling their grazing systems after the natural movement of wildlife across landscapes. “There's no substitute for what comes out the back of a cow or small ruminant,” Doug jokes. Doug hasn't used any off-farm inputs for years, and yet his yields continue to increase. The adaptive part of AMP is quintessential: not only is a successful grazing plan going to be unique and flexible to the context of a piece of land, but to the conditions that may come to pass during the season, be it a change in rainfall or a family wedding you need a couple days to travel to. The number of variables to consider may be daunting, but as Doug reminds us, creating an adaptive grazing plan is more of a journey than a destination. In the interview, he shares some advice for those looking to start to graze as well as those looking to improve their management, covering fencing, watering systems, rest periods, and examples from Voss Farms. The payoff is worth it. AMP grazing has brought Doug great peace of mind and more predictable income: “I have far fewer challenges where I'm not going to be productive or profitable on an acre of ground than I've ever had before.” Whether you own a herd or land, there are a lot of good resources to help you get livestock applied appropriately to your land: SFA Soil Health resources SFA Silvopasture resources Technical Assistance Program for Graziers Nourishment by Fred Provenza SFA also offers technical assistance to farmers, with priority given to SFA members.

There are fears Organic dairy farmers will leave the sector as they say the rising cost of production isn't being reflected in the price they're paid for their milk. Since the cost of production has risen, farmers have been getting much higher prices for dairy, but some who run Organic productions say their margins have risen even more - and that is not being taken into account. A new study suggests converting livestock farms into arable could see regular crops fail to grow. The study from Rothamsted Research and SRUC looked at land in the South West of England to see what might happen as society shifts towards more plant-based diets. And as we continue our week talking about goats, our reporter visits farmer Nicola Knott, who has developed a business selling rare types of goats for breeding.

Grass10 advisor, Joseph Dunphy, joins Emma-Louise Coffey on this week's Dairy Edge podcast to review the grassland situation on dairy farms and provides advice for the remainder of the grazing season. Joseph explains that, depending on the level of rainfall during July and August, the average farm cover and consequently, grass availability, is completely variable; some farms are on a predominantly grass-based diet with low levels of concentrate supplement while others are feeding a silage and concentrate diet with a small proportion of grazed grass. Joseph recommends that farmers monitor grass, set the farm up for a 30-day rotation and where farm cover remains below target, supplement to fill the deficit.

This episode of Voices from the Field continues a conversation between Dr. Sam Fuhlendorf of Oklahoma State University and NCAT Grazing Specialist Linda Poole about using grazing to bolster, rather than unintentionally harm, desirable wildlife on farms and ranches. Many regenerative ranchers use mob grazing – dense herds of livestock grazing a place for a very brief time before moving on – to increase grass production and improve soil health. It has been a successful strategy for graziers around the world, but often also affects bird populations and other wildlife.Sam and Linda talk about the role of fire in range management and the positive effect it can have for wildlife. They also discuss applying range management strategies on smaller operations and regionally. ATTRA Resources: · Grazing with Wildlife in Mind. Part 1· For the Love of the Wild.

As we continue our week looking at the causes and consequences of increasing food prices, we hear how the world's largest grain trading companies are making huge profits at the same time as food prices increase rapidly. Some charities are now calling for them to face a windfall tax. We speak to IPES-Food which has been monitoring how recent global events are affecting global food prices. How sustainable is the meat you eat? Some people pay more for organic and grass-fed beef and lamb with the belief that it will have less of an impact on the environment, however conservation writer George Monbiot says they are wrong, as it is some of the most damaging. Anna Hill speaks to George Monbiot and Cambridge University professor Donald Broom who says there needs to be a wider assessment of what is meant by sustainable. And we've reported regularly about the use of robots on farms, from weeding crops to picking fruit. But they are still too expensive for many farmers to think of using. Now the idea of hiring in robots, rather like seasonal workers, is on the cards. Presented by Anna Hill Produced in Bristol by Natalie Donovan

For this episode I had the pleasure of talking with Kendra Knapik of Ellison Estate Vineyard, a vineyard of American grapes on Grand Isle in the middle of Lake Champlain Vermont. Kendra and her husband Rob practice animal grazing integrated regenerative viticulture with a flock of sheep and organic practices, and make an array natural wines. Kendra talks about the joys and challenges of embracing the life of a winegrower while having young children and a full-time job – in her case as a veterinary oncologist. As hard as you can tell she works, you can also hear in her voice that she is fueled by the beauty of what she's doing. The process is as impressive to me as what she's building, and one more piece of evidence that Vermont is a hot spot for some really cool winemaking. https://www.ellisonestatevineyard.com/ Sponsor: https://www.centralaswine.com/

In 2001, American Prairie made an appearance in Montana with the goal to stitch together private and public lands in Eastern Montana to create a large grassland reserve. By buying ranches from willing sellers, the group – once known as the Prairie Foundation, American Prairie Foundation, and American Prairie Reserve – has become a lightning rod for criticism, legislation and political divisiveness. This is in part because it has stocked some of its land with bison. Recently, the Bureau of Land Management gave final approval to the group to alter grazing plans on federal lands to accommodate bison, reigniting the long simmering feud. On this week's episode Brett French, outdoors and natural resources reporter the Billings Gazette discusses the contentious history of American Prairie's attempt to create a native grassland prairie inhabited by bison.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

THE THESIS: The good medical professionals know something is deeply wrong. It's not “just” Covid or abortion or the trangsegnder lies. It's the massive lie of a serotonin imbalance and the drugging of millions of people. Our healthcare system has become irredeemably corrupt. It is going to be up to Christ-followers to rebuild the nation's healthcare system. Why? Because it was the early, Christian church that lead to the creation of hospitals and we are being called to return to God's plan for living. THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES: Luke 7: 1-10 The Faith of the Centurion 7 When Jesus had finished saying all this to the people who were listening, he entered Capernaum. 2 There a centurion's servant, whom his master valued highly, was sick and about to die. 3 The centurion heard of Jesus and sent some elders of the Jews to him, asking him to come and heal his servant. 4 When they came to Jesus, they pleaded earnestly with him, “This man deserves to have you do this, 5 because he loves our nation and has built our synagogue.” 6 So Jesus went with them. He was not far from the house when the centurion sent friends to say to him: “Lord, don't trouble yourself, for I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. 7 That is why I did not even consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant will be healed. 8 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,' and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,' and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,' and he does it.” 9 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd following him, he said, “I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.” 10 Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well.
