Can the camaraderie of an inclusive community of graziers be the first step in solving a host of economic and climatic societal challenges? Join graziers Doniga Markegard of Markegard Grass Fed and Ariel Greenwood of Holistic Ag, two enterprises using livestock to restore native biodiversity and ecosystem health. In this workshop with and for broad acre practitioners, we will explore the opportunities and challenges of choosing a grazier's lifestyle to gain one's livelihood. We’ll address key factors, including land access models, surprises and “wish we’d knowns,” income models and adaptations for economic conditions. Participants and panelists will discuss current opportunities to leverage the carbon farming movement to support life-affirming livelihoods while promoting a return to ruminants on the land.
