Last Fall, we held a series of Mitigating Drought with Holistic Management Workshops in Texas. The events were well attended and we are pleased to share our Results Report with our community. Here at HMI, we are all about working directly with ranchers, farmers, and other ag professionals to help them learn the skills they need to manage their land sustainably. — even in times of drought. Here are just a few of the comments we heard from participants…
“I loved learning about enriching and managing the soil.”
“I have a better understanding of how to use livestock to improve biological cycle.”
“I learned how to develop an accurate forecast/plan for a grazing strategy. “
“The benefit of group brainstorming to gain solutions to problems and the benefit of what HMI has to offer were the most useful.
“I learned simple, economical ways to tackle the weaklink, such as water availability, the relationship between land planning & grazing, holistic goals, being flexible in your plans.”

HMI sends a big THANK YOU to Bear Creek Ranch and the Dixon Water Foundation for making this series extremely successful!
