Reaching 300 members has been an elusive goal, but we made it!

... and what a difference rain can make from one year to another.  Pictures below taken in ~ same spot a year apart.  2016 was historic drought, and this summer pretty much the opposite.

Great job Brett.  

We are struggling to keep our goal of 500 Brahman mothers on or silvopasture project. This year we thinned out abt 200 acres of our oldest tweak wood forest <20 years old> from February through August. We obtained  badly needed light and space to improve the growth of grass and weeds to support the project. Now during our rainy season the forrest, grass-weeds are great, we had little erosion after thinning out.  Waiting for the dry summer months from January to May to get a real picture of our new situation. 

 

 Hope can make it to Grass fed exchange conference.
