Spider webs decorate our pastures in the morning mist. As top predators in the bug world, their presence is an indicator of a healthy, functioning ecosystem. There is prey available for them to eat, habitat for them to live, structure for them to construct webs on, and water for them to drink. #mistymorning #regenerativeag #healthyecosystem #restoration #indicator #spiders #nofilter #earlymorningtreasures

Meet the ram clan - Rammy Ram, Carlos, and George. They're enjoying the visionary parcel of our farm - the old oak savanna that remains behind the house. It's the part of the farm we seek to replicate over the coming decades; to restore the natural savanna ecosystem across all of our pastures for a more self sustaining, natural system. #ramsofinstagram #happysheep #silvopasture #oaksavanna #restoration #regenerativeag #visionary #restoretheland

Pro-tip: Kids love picnics 🐜 Even if it’s hot, or cold, or windy. Even if it’s just lunch meat, cheese, and carrots. Even if it’s only a 10 minute break during a long and difficult day of working outside. 🌤 We eat on the road and hit the drive thru more often than I’d like to admit but picnics mean less mess, healthier food, and the kids think it’s a treat. 🍓 What are your favorite snacks and meals on-the-go? Mama needs some more ideas 😜 ———— #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #farmlife #familyfarm #farmfamily #farming #farmher #farmkids #countrylife #countrykids #wildandfreechildren #lovelifeoutside #agriculture #agfamily #regenerativeag #soilhealth #holisticfarming #ranchfamily #rancher #ranching #cattleranch #sustainablebeef #blackangus #beefadvocate #wildwest #kansas #prairie #grasslands #homeontherange #thisisparadise

《Swipe right for the rest of the image!》It's always critical to have one or more riders in front of the herd, slowing the faster moving cattle down and encouraging them to graze. Doing so helps the "back end", as we like to call the peaceful, lazy cattle that always end up straggling behind, a chance to catch up while still eating their fill. • Riding the front position brings a variety of challenges, since the lead cattle don't always want to slow down and eat. Sometimes they simply walk around a horse and rider, choosing different lines of travel off into the trees or down the canyon. But, in spite of those frustrating moments, it's a lot more fun to take photos of cattle from the front. The back end view gets a little old. #idahoranching #highcountry #stockmanship #cowboying #cowcamp #grassfed 📷: @melzingaphoto

After switching off with the new crew yesterday, I caught sight of the entire herd, spreading out over the hillside across the draw. When you look at them from far away, it sure doesn't look like 250 head of cattle, at least to me. . I'm always surprised how small, cohesive, and manageable the herd can look at times, leaving us to scratch our heads and wonder if we didn't somehow leave 50 behind somewhere. Then, in an unbelievably short timespan, the herd strings out and cattle shoot off in all directions, despite our best efforts to keep them together. Then we realize that, although we more than likely had all the cattle half an hour ago, we are about to lose 50 head for real. #ranchlife #longdays #regenerativegrazing #grassfedbeef #herding 📷: @melzingaphoto

Meet Sarah Flack. She's a world-renown grazing expert helping livestock farmers across the country manage their animals to increase the health and sustainability of their farms. "The essence of Flack’s advice is that farmers can use the very process of grazing animals to create healthier soil, more robust pastures, improved animal welfare, and a more financially sustainable operation. Though each farm is different, she promotes a few universal principles, such dividing pasture into paddocks—the more the better—and rotating animals through them. She also advises to graze animals in each paddock for a short period of time and vary the lengths of time each paddock is allowed to recover. This approach keeps the plants from being grazed too short and gives them enough time to recover, yielding better, more nutritious feed and spurring the growth of more perennial forage. At the same time, the animals’ waste and the tramping action of their hooves helps enrich the soil. Farmers save time and money by having to do less tilling, seeding, and fertilizing of their fields and by having to buy less additional feed to support their livestock. “It’s the only way I know of where we can actually use the animals to improve ecosystem health,” Flack says. “All of the other forms of livestock agriculture are, to at least a certain degree, mining the ecosystem of resources or relocating them in ways that are not healthy.” We admire your leadership, Sarah! #regenerativeag https://buff.ly/2tiCu67

While it’s easier to just surround yourself with people who look, think, and act like you , it’s better for you and everyone else to seek out relationship with those that are different. ❤️ Where are you cultivating diversity in your world?

Not only is it summer grazing season, but it's also winter prep season. Our cattle and sheep are 100% grass-fed, meaning they eat only grass for their entire life - from weaning to finishing, they never see grain. Over winter, our cattle and sheep continue that consumption in the form of hay (dried grass/alfalfa) and haylage (slightly fermented hay). The hay and haylage we feed is grown and cut from our own fields and pastures to ensure our animals continue to receive the same high quality feed throughout the winter. #fields #haybales #grassfed #grassfedlamb #grassfedbeef #grazing #pasture #cyclical #sustainable #regenerativeag #scenic #countryside #nutritious

Anybody use solar wells? 🌤 The property we are currently fencing is totally off the grid so we have a solar pump and multiple tanks piped together to ensure the cattle will have plenty of water even on cloudy days. The tanks also help protect the pump, float, and solar panels. 💦 The hardest part of following Allan Savorys rotational grazing method is definitely developing fence and water, but nothing in life worth having is easy, right? 🐃 Tell me about your water systems 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽 ———— #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #farmlife #familyfarm #farmfamily #farming #farmher #farmkids #countrylife #countrykids #wildandfreechildren #lovelifeoutside #agriculture #agfamily #regenerativeag #soilhealth #holisticfarming #ranchfamily #rancher #ranching #cattleranch #sustainablebeef #blackangus #beefadvocate #wildwest #kansas #prairie #grasslands #homeontherange #thisisparadise

You probably didn’t notice my absence this week, but I went from posting every day to suddenly being unable to say anything. The truth is I didn’t want to talk about this, but anything else felt like a lie. . This week was my birthday and the 4th of July but it was hard for me to celebrate after the accident we had last Monday. . My sweet 2 year old boy fell out of a moving ranger. It shook me to my core and left me questioning everything. I was heartbroken, guilty and ashamed. After all, it’s a mom’s job to protect her babies, right? . I know I can’t protect them from everything but at this point I want nothing more than to wrap them all in bubble wrap and lock them inside from now on. . I won’t do that. I love the farm life. It’s everything I enjoy about God’s beautiful creation and I truly believe it is the best way to grow up. But I will be instituting some new rules around here. . Baylon is absolutely fine according to the ER doctors. (Praise Jesus!) But if you take any lesson from this, whether it’s an ATV, a bike, or a horse, please PLEASE, put your babies in helmets. I know it’s a lesson I will never forget. —— #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #farmlife #familyfarm #farmfamily #farming #farmher #farmkids #countrylife #countrykids #wildandfreechildren #lovelifeoutside #agriculture #agfamily #regenerativeag #soilhealth #holisticfarming #ranchfamily #rancher #ranching #cattleranch #sustainablebeef #blackangus #beefadvocate #wildwest #kansas #prairie #grasslands #homeontherange #thisisparadise

Concluding Thursdays’s post: Although we’ve come to it last, this is the most important question to qualify: What are some good crop combinations to grow in my location? You might already know your location and have some thoughts about the kinds of crops you want to grow. What, though, do you mean by “good”? Defining “good” really clearly in this context is going to help you understand what you can investigate and what can’t be done. It will help to define the resources you need and the approach you take. At the moment, “good” could mean lots of things. * They grow (in that climate/soil) * They grow well together * You get an abundant harvest * You get a better harvest growing together than growing each on its own * They are good to eat * They support a high number of pollinators over a long period * They help to improve your soil structure, soil nutrients, and soil organisms So your own experiments and growing practice are as unique as the answers to these questions… Enjoy and do keep us posted on any efforts put in!

Two days ago, we reached Forest Service pastures with the cattle and grazed them in the timber for the first time this year. Those first few hours in the trees are always a bit nerve wracking. The cattle, excited about the new grass and abundance of shade, often scatter off in all directions, unseen by riders behind thick stands of Douglas fir. The crew, for their part, are trying to figure out new herding methods while trying to avoid being clotheslined on low hanging branches, all while keeping the herd together and grazing good grass. . In timbered areas, we implement a technique where riders move back and forth on part of a circle around the herd, changing directions when they meet another rider traveling toward them. For the most part, the idea works just great. Until it doesn't! . Despite some stress on the crew's part, Glenn always maintains an infectious aura of calm. I don't know how he does it. #stockmanship #headguy #cruisingtimber #grassfedbeef #wildprotein 📷: @melzingaphoto

Kofi Boa set up the Centre for No-Till Agriculture (CNTA) in Ghana to demonstrate the benefits and evidence of Conservation Agriculture, which include water conservation, increased yields, weed and pest management, sustaining arable land, reduction of labor, innovation and entrepreneurship, access to education and food and nutrition security. Grow Ahead has teamed up with the CNTA to fundraise for the installation of five learning centres. The learning centres will introduce and promote sustainable farming amongst smallholder farmers through the adoption of conservation agriculture. Each learning centre will have 50 farmers participate in one year of hands-on training, engaging a total of 250 farmers within the year. Each of those farmers will then be expected to share the knowledge and experienced gained with at least 10 farmers farming around him/her the following year. That's a total of 2,500 farmers in two years! We’ve already raised $3,000 of $5,000 ➡️ Will you help us reach our goal? 🙏 www.growahead.org/promoting-conservation-agriculture-in-Ghana

Although we have a specific experiment in place, growing in general can be a fascinating experiment! Take some of these questions into consideration: -What kinds of crops do you want to grow? -How many different combinations of that number of crops can you try? You will then need to divide your space based on: * how much space each plant will need and * how many of each plant you will have * how many different crops there are
 How are they going to be combined? This is where it can get tricky. How you arrange your plants can influence how well they grow. You might consider: * How close together they are (‘crop density’) * What the sowing pattern or arrangement is. For example, are they placed in rows, a uniform grid spacing, or broadcast (scattered randomly in an area)? * Where they are in relation to each other, for example, underneath or on the sunny side
 More to follow later this week. These questions came from our FutureLearn course #GROWSoil2Food. Our next online course will run in November so sign up to our newsletter to stay posted: http://bit.ly/growobservatorynewsletter

Meet Chicory! It often grows on roadsides, open areas, and in our pastures. It's roots are long reaching taps, similar to dandelion, that help break up soil compaction and bring nutrients to the soil surface. The roots also often cultivated and roasted as a coffee substitute or sweetener alternative. The flowers are a soft purple-blue that add a sweeping softness in color contrast to the green grass below. Chicory is tall and has a stiff stem that can be a little less fun to drive through, but it's height helps keep the ground cool for the cattle that forage among it. #chicory #flowerpower #pasture #regenerativeag #soil #restoration

Sarah captured this iconic photo of Anthony, scouting for grass on a ridge beneath another swiftly approaching storm. . This year, Anthony has moved up the ranks to fill the role of a crew boss. Among his many duties, he must determine where the best forage is located and direct the other riders as to how the cattle should move across the landscape to reach said grass. It's not always a simple or stress free job, but it's incredibly rewarding to see the cattle thriving. #rangelandconservation #conservationriding #thunderstorm #ranchlife #partofthejob 📷: @sjohnson.artist

I have another opportunity for my local pals to get their hands on some grass-fed + grass-finished locally, sustainably raised beef harvested from Castle Rock Ranch next month. These cows live peacefully along the river banks and are transferred to lush, nutritious grass daily. No pesticides or harmful toxic substances are used in or on the cows or at the ranch. You can contact the rancher, Albert, directly to reserve, arrange, and pre-pay. This time they are offering quarters, halves, and wholes only butchered by my favorites at #mountainviewcustommeats Email: info@castlerockranchcamp.com. This is the best way to get the ball rolling. Link to their website is in my profile! Make sure you tell them you heard it here first and if you got in on some of this beef last fall you KNOW how incredibly delicious it is!

Story time: 🤗 Last week Annabelle found a caterpillar (not the one pictured, it was less hairy and smaller) and claimed it as a pet snake. “It’s a girl, mommy! She’s so nice. She will never bite me. She’s not a venomous snake, she’s a nice snake.” 🐛 We made it a little terrarium home in a mason jar and Annabelle was as happy as could be.... Until about 5 minutes later, when she came into the house in full emotional breakdown because she had taken her “pet snake” out of the jar and couldn’t find it. 🌱 I tried to help her, but alas the caterpillar had escaped in the grass. And no, unfortunately that is not the end of the story. Annabelle is now insisting that she will save all of her money a buy a real pet snake. 🐍 Luckily for her mama it’s going to take a long time for her to turn a quarter a day (when she does her chores) into a pet snake. I’m not sure how much they cost, but just the aquarium will take her a couple years....right?! 😬 Have you ever had a strange pet at your house? She has of course wanted a kitten and a puppy and a palomino foal (that one might have been my idea), but a snake y’all? I’m not sure I’m up for it... ———— #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #farmlife #familyfarm #farmfamily #farming #farmher #farmkids #countrylife #countrykids #wildandfreechildren #lovelifeoutside #agriculture #agfamily #regenerativeag #soilhealth #holisticfarming #ranchfamily #rancher #ranching #cattleranch #sustainablebeef #blackangus #beefadvocate #wildwest #kansas #prairie #grasslands #homeontherange #thisisparadise

What’s your favorite farm activity to do together? ———— #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #farmlife #familyfarm #farmfamily #farming #farmher #farmkids #countrylife #countrykids #wildandfreechildren #lovelifeoutside #agriculture #agfamily #regenerativeag #soilhealth #holisticfarming #ranchfamily #rancher #ranching #cattleranch #sustainablebeef #blackangus #beefadvocate #wildwest #kansas #prairie #grasslands #homeontherange #thisisparadise

Tuesday’s are step up day for our calves. Every Tuesday morning we move a group of 10-20 calves from individual pens, into their first group. It is like a child attending kindergarten. We start with a small group and as they get older they will be transitioned into larger groups of heifers/cows in similar age, size or stage of lactation. We clean out the pens where the calves were raised and get ready for a new row of heifers to be raised for our herd.
