Learn how to develop and implement a successful grazing plan.

 This powerful step-by-step grazing planning process developed by ALLAN SAVORY is good for your grass, livestock, wildlife, soil, monitoring, and especially your wallet.                                               

·       Morning sessions focus on new principles, simple tools & the planning chart; afternoons are spent on a working ranch.

·       Learn from people who use this grazing planning process to build soil grassland health, animal performance & profit.

·       Learn how to accelerate improvements in annual grassland, native perennial grassland, oak woodland, irrigated pasture,

wetlands and stream-side habitats using livestock. Learn how to stop over-grazing plants and over-resting land. Learn the power of high animal impact to create the change you want. We will learn by doing, so bring your pencil and calculator.

Instructors: Richard King, 23 yrs. of experience on his own ranch, retired USDA-NRCS, Certified Professional in Range Management (SRM), Certified Rangeland Manager #M5 (CA Board of Forestry & Fire Protection),  CNGA Board member,  & Certified Holistic Management Educator (HMI) and Brian Bartholomew, Ridgewood Ranch Livestock Manager.
