Forrest Pritchard: Multi-Species Grazing: Building Fertility Through Diversified Livestock

Forrest Pritchard


Consumer demand for grassfed meats is at a record high, and more and more farmers are getting into multi-species operations to diversify their farm operations and product offerings. Rotational grazing with several kinds of livestock and poultry on the same pasture produces many benefits, but making it all work together can be a little like running a three-ring circus. Pritchard offers solutions that have worked on his farm, together with some compelling insights into why multi-species grazing makes sense for your soil and your pocketbook.
