Farmers and ranchers face enormous challenges today, from the drought conditions in the western United States to rising costs of production, regulations, family succession hurdles, and feed availability for livestock. Livestock producers are seeking lasting solutions to these issues.
Livestock producers need a way to increase production of the land they have instead of seeking more production ground, which puts them deeper in debt. They need a way for families to plan together for generations so ranches and farms remain ranches and farms. They need rich, fertile soil to lessen their dependence on highly-coveted irrigation water and make the most of the rainfall and moisture received in the arid west. They need rivers to run, soil to stay, and communities to grow.
This is called regenerative agriculture, and holistic management makes it possible.
