What an amazing experience it was to sit under the teaching of experts with years of experience in innovative range management! They challenged us to think outside the box, and consider the fact that the "livestock" IN our soil (microbes) are even more important to the success of an operation than the livestock on top of the soil. And they taught us to consider the permeability of our soil, and how we can increase water infiltration in this semi-arid climate. And so many other things too numerous to mention in a FB post. Thank you SD South Dakota Grassland Coalition for your vision and for the investment you made in all of us this week.
