    Award-winning author Temple Grandin is famous for her groundbreaking approach to decoding animal behavior. Now she extends her expert guidance to small-scale farming operations.

You’ll learn to become a skilled observer of animal movement and behavior, and detailed illustrations will help you set up simple and efficient facilities for managing a small herd of 3 to 25 cattle or pigs, or 5 to 100 goats or sheep.

  • Silvopasture: A Guide to Managing Grazing Animals, Forage Crops, and Trees in a Temperate Farm Ecosystem

    In this book, farmer Steve Gabriel offers examples of diverse current systems that include:

    • A black locust plantation for fence posts coupled with summer grazing pastures for cattle in central New York;
    • Oxen and pigs used to clear forested land in New Hampshire to create space for new market gardens and orchards;
    • Turkeys used for controlling pests and fertilization on a cider orchard and asparagus farm in New York; and
    • Sheep that graze the understory of hybrid chestnut and hickory trees at a nut nursery in Minnesota.

    All of these examples share common goals, components, and philosophies. The systems may take several years to establish, but the long-term benefits include healthier animals and soils, greater yields, and the capacity to sequester atmospheric carbon better than forests or grasslands alone.

    For all these reasons and more, Silvopasture offers farmers an innovative and ecological alternative to conventional grazing practice.
