We incorporate regenerative ranching practices into our farm.
After raising cattle the conventional way, it didn’t take Daniel long at all to figure out there has got to be a better way to raise cattle and manage land. We had also just cleared some wooded land and started learning more about soil biology and grass growth.
Daniel started doing his research, learning about regenerative agriculture, and was sold. Emily, Bentley, and Charlie quickly jumped on board. We could all see how regenerative ranching just made sense. Instead of destroying the land we could use cattle to heal the land. We could make the land better than we found it without expensive, commercial fertilizer or chemicals.
After moving the cattle daily with poly wire and step in post; We could see a difference. We would let the cattle graze an area, then get them off and move them to the next paddock. We immediately noticed how much better manure and urine distribution there was by doing this and how quickly the grass recovered.
Daniel built a mobile shade structure out of an old Dodge truck that we could move around with the cows and we ran poly water pipe throughout our farm which gave us the opportunity to make the paddocks smaller and intensively graze our cattle. We could see a huge difference in our plants, our soil, and our cattle.
We roll out our hay for our cattle in the winter and we are convinced this is one of the best and quickest ways to build soil and improve pastures. Each year we have more and more life in the soil. We love to see the earthworms and dung beetles doing their job. It’s amazing to us how much better and healthier everything is when we try to mimic nature and the way God designed it vs. fighting against it.
We started noticing some animals do better in a grass based system and began integrating South Poll Cattle into our herd. It was amazing to us to see how well these cattle performed on grass and just seemed overall healthier, and lower maintenance. We love how they thrive on nothing but grass, they take the summer heat better, and the flies do not bother them near as bad as black cattle.
