This episode is part of our Skilled Labor Series hosted by MCJ partner, Yin Lu. This series is focused on amplifying the voices of folks from the skilled labor workforce, including electricians, farmers, ranchers, HVAC installers, and others who are on the front lines of rewiring our infrastructure.Today's guest is Alejandro Carrillo, a rancher who lives in El Paso, Texas and stewards his family's ranch in Mexico's Chihuahuan Desert. Maintaining grasslands is important for preserving biodiversity, ensuring clean rivers, and storing carbon. In fact, since grasslands store carbon underground in their roots and soil, some would argue that they are better carbon sinks than forests. As stewards of these habitats, ranchers like Alejandro who focus on regenerative practices play an important role raising livestock and maintaining carbon sinks. After a successful career as an IT consultant, Alejandra joined his family ranch in 2004. Tired of the constant drought and suffering that came with traditional ranching in a desert climate, he'd been searching for ways to adapt and rehabilitate his family's land. Since 2006, Alejandro has adapted the principles of holistic grazing or regenerative ranching as we'll learn about in this episode. He's also the president of Pare Del, a nonprofit organization that provides ongoing education for cattle ranchers as well as promotes holistic plant grazing across the world's deserts. In this fascinating and meandering conversation, Yin and Alejandro discuss regenerative ranching, why dung beetles are so important, the epigenetics of cows, the differences between Mexican and American agriculture policies, their effects on ranching and a whole lot more. Enjoy! In this episode, we cover: [2:23] Alejandro's background and ranching experience [5:47] An overview of his family's ranch in Chihuahua, Mexico[8:24] Differences between farming and ranching[16:28] Symbiotic relationship between grasslands and cattle grazing [19:47] An overview of the water cycle, issues with management today and impacts on soil[25:45] Regenerative ranching principles [32:24] How ranchers make a living[39:45] Policy differences for ranching between the U.S. and Mexico [43:18] What keeps Alejandro optimistic about the future of ranching practicesGet connected: Yin's Twitter / LinkedInMCJ Podcast / Collective*You can also reach us via email at info@mcjcollective.com, where we encourage you to share your feedback on episodes and suggestions for future topics or guests.Episode recorded on September 1, 2022.

“.. everything works together. The more diverse a pasture or grassland is, the healthier it is, the more resilient it is to any disturbance that comes at it. So, if we can have that diversity it's going to reduce the inputs needed and the landscape can be more resilient as well”. - Emily Helms USDA-NRCS's State Rangeland Management Specialist in South Dakota. If you find yourself in a meeting or in the field where farmers or ranchers are demonstrating or discussing good grazing practice (like Rotate, Rest, Recover), whether East or West River, you're likely to find Emily Helms, USDA-NRCS's State Rangeland Management Specialist in South Dakota. While Emily is not one to draw attention to herself, anyone who is interested in rangeland function and diversity would do well to pay close attention to what Emily says. While most of us would walk by an obscure-looking plant, Emily is likely to stop and say “Oh! This is a …..” and she'd take you to school about the plant above and belowground, it's story, its function in the prairie and how or when it can be grazed. Soil Health Lab's Joe Dickie and Buz Kloot sit down to chat with Emily Helms about rangeland, it's value, the threats to rangeland, what can be done to mitigate the threats and we discuss a number of examples of what folks are doing right to restore function to grasslands in South Dakota. In the podcast, Emily walks us through four threats namely: 1. Woody encroachment on rangeland 2. Urban encroachment 3. Conversion to cropland 4. Cool season invasive species Finally, in the last few minutes of the interview, Emily walks us through why the grasslands are important, why diversity is important to resilience and why this groundswell of partners and partnerships has the potential to restore grasslands in the state, and elsewhere.

It is a rare pleasure to speak with a person of consequence and have their undivided attention for an hour. Ray Archuleta, who needs little introduction, has been a person of consequence in the lives of Buz Kloot (Soil Health Labs at the University of South Carolina) and Tanse Herrmann, NRCS Grazing Lands Soil Health Specialist working out of Rapid City, South Dakota. In this podcast, Buz and Tanse host Ray Archuleta and catch up with him, but before that, both Buz and Tanse tell their stories of how they first met Ray and how he has impacted their lives. A theme that runs through the podcast is The Goal of farming/ranching – making money is an outcome, but The Goal is to Follow the Pattern that Mother Nature has provided. We talk to Ray about his journey since he left the USDA-NRCS (where he served for 3 decades) and what he's been up to since then. Ray now has land near Seymour, Missouri and talks about having “Skin in the Game” now that he has his own land payment and his own livestock to manage! Ray talks about having skin in the game as being a great tool to make him more empathetic to the ranchers and farmers he speaks to, and he still does a lot of that. Ray also speaks from his own experience of farming with sheep, the mistakes he has made and what he's learned in the process – infrastructure, animal safety and health, epigenetics and simplicity of design are discussed. The conversation turns to the work that Alejandro Carrillo has done on the Las Damas Ranch in the Chihuahua desert and how transformational this has been to the landscape (see the Las Damas Case Study at the end of these show notes). Ray uses the discussion about Alejandro's land as an opportunity to educate us on the principle of ecological context (often considered the 6th principle of soil health), in this case, he discusses ecological context in terms of the difference between rainfall on his land (~45” a year) versus Alejandro's (8” - 10” a year). Note that the first five principles of soil health are: 1. Minimum disturbance; 2. Cover the soil; 3. Keep a live root in the soil as many days as possible; 4. Add diversity of plants (e.g., grasses and broadleaves, warm and cool season, annuals, and perennials); 5. Incorporate livestock back to the land. The discussion of ecological context also led us to spend some time discussing the very important human dimension of rangeland and farmland management, and how people make decisions. We make a few references to Dr. Ellen Davis's Book “Scripture, Culture and Agriculture” and the work by Hannah Gosnell and others in a paper called “Transformational adaptation on the farm: Processes of change and persistence in transitions to ‘climate-smart' regenerative agriculture” where “dimensions of transformation [are] associated with beliefs, values, emotions, worldviews, structures of meaning-making, and consciousness” are discussed. See below for the links to these two references. References from the Podcast: Alejandro Carrillo: Las Damas Ranch Case Study, Las Damas Ranch, Aldama County, Chihuahua, Mexico https://understandingag.com/case_studies/las-damas-ranch-case-study/ Ray discusses infrastructure, and there is no better network on rangeland and farmland advice than the SD Grasslands Coalition Mentoring Network where mentors on fencing and water placement, among other things, are provided: https://sdgrass.org/mentoring-network/ SoilHealthLab's podcast with Shannon Kulseth-Iverson: “39 How Rangeland Health and Livestock Work to Solve Environmental Issues” https://www.growingresiliencesd.com/podcasts/episode/c506bbc6/39-how-rangeland-health-and-livestock-work-to-solve-environmental-issues Books Discussed in Podcast: Note we have links for convenience- there are other outlets that carry these books as well.

My background is in large scale logistics operations, and I serve as the Texas Fleet Manager for Ferguson Enterprises, the largest plumbing wholesale company in the US. My family (wife Kellye, boys Hunter, 10 and Carter, 7) also own and operate a large commercial sheep herd (Texas Solar Sheep) along with our registered Dorper herd Cuatro H Dorpers. I am the current President of the Texas Hill Country Dorper Association. I bought our first Dorper rams from Philip Glass in about 2003 to use with our commercial hair ewes. I was impressed with their hardiness, ability to have multiple lambs on an accelerated lambing interval, and the impressive carcass qualities. I truly believe those characteristics of the breed from almost 20 years ago are still what we should strive to produce today. Sheep that will survive, have multiple lambs, and bring top dollar when sold based on carcass quality. Adhering to the breed standards will keep us on track to consistently produce an animal that will have value into the future. If elected to the Board, I will make sure and try to keep the commercial producers needs at the forefront. The commercial producer is the base consumer for any sheep breed that intends to be successful at any scale. I will also make sure we have a focus on using all means possible to market and promote our breed and producers.

Sharon HolmanFor the past three years I have served on the ADSBS Board I have been motivated by the fact that ADSBS is in the enviable position to propel our breeds and branded Dorper Lamb product into the U.S market as an identifiable and quality protein. My term on the ADSBS Board of Directors started in January 2020, and everyone knows what happened next, COVID….and crisis management. I believe that the Board was successful in keeping the Society running, given all the unique challenges. I was chosen to lead the Board as President in 2021 and again in 2022. My greatest accomplishments during my leadership include: the development of the ADSBS Strategic Plan, modernizing the ADSBS committees, employing the first Executive Director, implementing a new financial structure, and updating ADSBS policies and procedures. I would be honored to serve another term on the ADSBS Board of Directors to continue to work for you and expand into what I believe is another avenue for Dorpers to excel: commercial sheep production. Why? Because with a robust commercial Dorper sheep industry we will enjoy a strong sustainable market for our registered Dorper and White Dorper seedstock. Range management and production agriculture are my passions and I believe that Dorpers fit into my business model and work for me. I am a fulltime rancher and in my own operation I use my Dorper and White Dorper sheep, Spanish goats, Angora goats, and occasionally a few cows to manage native forages. I spent 20 years raising Boer goats however, I chose to leave that industry because the goats were not adaptable to production on a commercial level. I would like to say that this has been an easy journey as we are fortunate to raise a breed of sheep so adaptable that they thrive across the U.S. in all types of production systems. However, we've had our challenges and I believe that we're better for it and have found more opportunity. I would be honored to continue to work for you and continue to move ADSBS progressively forward. www.Dorpersheep.orgwww.Nationalagco.com

I graduated from Penn State with a B.S. in Dairy and Animal Science and was a member of their Dairy Judging Team. Shortly after graduation my father passed away and we sold most of our property in Delaware to pay the estate tax. Dismayed by our tax situation, I returned to school and earned a B.S. in Accounting. I spent a couple years in public accounting auditing not-for-profit organizations, pursued a master's degree in taxation, and eventually went to work in corporate America. Today I'm a CPA, the Director of Tax Compliance for a large investment company and serve on our board of directors for the local Farm Bureau. We started with Dorpers in 2013 as 4-H projects for our children. We wanted to give them some of the same experiences we had growing up. We could have bought them nice market lambs and won some shows; but we wanted the kids to learn something more. I wanted them to learn how to evaluate an animal and improve a flock. It's been an education for all of us and we have all learned so much on this journey. In short, we started our journey to better our children, but we fell in love with the breed along the way.

I am currently a District Conservationist for the USDA-NRCS.My passion for raising sheep started when I was 8 years old. I was fascinated at tracing their genetics, recordkeeping, and rotational grazing and I still am to this day. I was active in 4-H, FFA, University Extension events, and Church. I attended collage at the University of Missouri and completed an undergraduate degree in Agricultural Education and a Masters in Agronomy with an emphasis in Grazing Management. Throughout my college education, I worked as a research specialist preforming grazing trails on perennial and annual forages and presenting at field days across the US and international. In 2006, I began my search for a breed of sheep that focused on production, carcass characteristics and growth. I was pleased to find the Dorper breed and added 4 ewes and a ram…and the rest is history! I have taken the Senior Course with Raymond Reed and have been honored to have Theuns Botha and Colene van der Merwe inspect our flock. I feel it's not only important to select by standards but also carcass merit and productivity. We are currently transitioning from an excel program to an EID tagging system with reader and software from Select SheepWare. We are also utilizing Flock 54 for genetic testing. I would like to promote this level of record keeping in the Dorper breed. My children enjoy being involved in 4-H and Junior events. I believe in developing strong youth programs and promote showing and education in our Junior Members and was recently added to the ADSBS Youth Committee.

In 2021 I grew my flock from 300 to over 400 head with the acquisition of the Yucca Lily flock from Jean and Mike Sudderth. It was more of a passing of a legacy than a purchase and I am so honored that they entrusted the last, most precious of their Fullblood and Purebred bloodlines to me. I support breed preservation and improvement.I am a full-time White Dorper lamb meat producer. I believe that the Branded Dorper Meat label will be important to our breed in the future and it is a complicated process. We cannot make this cost-prohibitive to commercial farmers (like requiring registrations), but at the same time we need quality control measures so that the Dorper brand does not suffer. I ardently support a branded Dorper Lamb label and will do everything I can to help this endeavour. I support Dorper-specific advertising and marketing to reach other sheep breeders (especially commercial breeders). Ultrasounding loin eye, NSIP, and EBV's, and supporting parasite resistance studies through Texas A&M AgriLife Sheep and Goat Extension with the help of Jake Thorne would also be good for the Dorper breed.

In the Departamento de Maldonado of Uruguay, lives a biologist, Nicolás Marchand, who has been working with ranchers to make conservation and sustainability compatible with raising cattle in grasslands. A kind of approach that makes sure pastures for livestock also help host birds like the Buff-breasted Sandpiper, which spend their winters here. He wants to keep enhancing connections with ranchers, restoring pastures, and creating management practices that benefit wintering shorebirds — all to avoid losing more of these crucial ecosystems.More info and transcript at BirdNote.org. Want more BirdNote?

Amber Smith is a Montana-based rancher and the Executive Director of Women in Ranching, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to hold brave space, support courageous action, and champion rural women's leadership on the land. Offering a blend of in-person and virtual events, Women in Ranching has filled a unique niche across a wide range of rural communities in the West and beyond. From skill-building workshops to virtual kitchen table chats to multi-day on-the-ground experiences, Women in Ranching offers a much-needed, supportive network for women whose families and livelihoods are closely tied to agriculture and the land. - Amber was born and raised in Illinois, and she met her now-husband Trevor while working at a ranch in Colorado. They fell in love, got married, and today Amber and Trevor have two young children and a successful ranching business in eastern Montana. As you'll hear in our conversation, when Amber was first introduced to Women in Ranching several years ago, she felt an immediate connection to the organization's work– the connection was so strong that she eventually took the helm as the organization's leader. And earlier this year, after several years under the umbrella of Western Landowners Alliance, Women in Ranching became its own freestanding nonprofit organization- an exciting next step for the organization's continued growth and evolution. - Amber and I met more than five years ago on the Antelope Springs Ranch, the ranch that she and Trevor continue to steward to this day. I was immediately impressed with her energy, dedication to her community, and ability to juggle many competing priorities with grace and humor. I've been following her leadership with Women in Ranching for many years now, and it was a real pleasure to have the opportunity to reconnect and have such an inspiring conversation. We talked about the purpose and mission of Women in Ranching and how the organization has evolved in unexpected ways. We discuss some of the specific challenges facing women ranchers and how Women in Ranching works to address those needs. We discussed the pandemic's effect on ranching communities, how Amber tries to find balance in her life, how she has been positively impacted by the organization, some specific success stories, her favorite books, and much more. Be sure to check out the episode notes for a complete list of everything we discussed. - To learn more about Women in Ranching and to support its work, head over to www.womeninranching.co.
