Dixon Water Foundation sets the standard.
The Weatherford Democrat recently published this article, which explains how the foundation, which manages several ranches in Texas, practices Holistic Management. The Dixon Water Foundation is no stranger to HMI. Our board member, Clint Josey, is also on their board and they have supported HMI over the years. Their Bear Creek Ranch raises Red Angus and crossbred hair sheep – which don’t produce wool – on native grasses alone, producing meat that is certified organic – without hormones, antibiotics or other feed additives. The article gives really great explanation of how Holistic Management grazing planning mimics nature and the benefits it brings to the soil, the animals and the ranchers who practice it.
