These videos are from a DVD created by the Integrated Rural Development and Nature Conservation (IRDNC), a Namibian NGO and co-sponsored by the Namibian Department of Agriculture and the National Namibian Farmers Union. The video documents the development of a rangeland program focused on Holistic Management, spearheaded by Colin Nott, who has been trained in Holistic Management. Our thanks to IRDNC for developing this project and documenting their work. For more information about this project, contact Colin Nott at: [email protected]
Hear an overview of the project and see some of the participants in “Herding the Future”.
In “Cows n Boys 1” you will see a demonstration of low-stress livestock handling by Holistic Management Certified Educator Guy Glosson. Colin brought Guy over from Texas to teach the Namibian herders low-stress livestock handling so they could better manage their herds to improve land health and wildlife habitat. He is given the extra test of getting the “old wild bull” that no one can herd to go into the kraal (corral) and teaching the young herding boys how to do the same.
“Cows n Boys 2” is interspersed with Guy’s powerpoint lecture on Holistic Planned Grazing and low-stress livestock handling as well as more video footage of actual handling demonstration.
