David Pogson, Manitoba, Canada rancher and holistic manager, was recently interviewed by the Manitoba Farm Journal, and featured in an article on Pembina Valley Online.
Pogson talks about how using Holistic Management practices to plan livestock moves on his ranch over the past 8 years has improved his soil and allowed him to almost double his carrying capacity. He also shares how he’s used cover crops to both feed cattle and improve the soil.
Pogson credits Holistic Management with the improvements to his pastures.
