How to Think Like a Grazier

Barenbrug Grass Tent

With all the challenges facing farmers today with skyrocketing input costs it is extremely important to stay focused on what we can control. We can lower our input costs by fine tuning our grazing, livestock genetics, building soil life, keeping our soils covered, and developing a strong marketing program. We are in the solar energy conversion business, every blade of grass is important to us. By maximizing our solar panels and turning succulent green leaves into a healthy protein we have a wonderful product to market. To build a strong profitable farm every year, minimum fossil fuel is used along with minimal machines. Stay focused on 4 legged machines that run on grass and reproduce themselves every year.
