We’ve always very excited here when Holistic Management practitioners get recognized in the news media for the results they achieve. Here’s a couple of excerpts from a news story from KXNews on Cody and Deanna Sand from Ashley, North Dakota
“Actually we sold a lot of equipment we didn’t need. We kind of cleaned up a lot of debt by getting rid of a lot of items we didn’t need anymore; to be a little more low input.”
“We’ve noticed in the past few years that we’ve probably doubled our production on a lot of land just by giving it more rest days, having the cattle in it for a shorter period. “
According to the North Dakota Grazing Lands Coalition, the Sands started learning Holistic Management in 2011 in a course taught by Holistic Management Certified Educator Joshua Dukart. They are continuously working on improving their soil health and quality of life while minimizing inputs and changed to calving in sync with nature.
