The Gilberts are all-in on rotational grazing and family involvement.
“I’m excited for the projects and ideas that better our operation, keep our grasslands healthy, and grow our cattle,” says Deb Hove.
After trying for years to kill leafy spurge and buckbrush with spraying, the Permans are using a different approach.
Never overgraze your land, says Bill Slovek.
The chickens are rotated through the pastures and hay field, with the nitrogen from their manure adding natural fertilizer.
“They choose the grasses that our cows don’t want, so it’s a diversity win between the cattle and the goats,” says Marcie Dell.
