Land is your life support system - sound planning means everything. Build drought and fire resilience, biodiversity, and soil carbon. Increase effective rainfall!


 Learn how to develop and implement a successful grazing plan at this two-day workshop. 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 outside 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. Wear sturdy walking shoes and bring your rain gear!
