If you're interested in reducing your cattle feeding costs, freeing up capital tied up in equipment, and extending your grazing season, then this book is for you. Jim Gerrish was a researcher specializing in 'Management Intensive Grazing' at the University of Missouri's research farms as well as owning his own cattle ranch, so his ideas are solid, well-researched, and field tested. Whether you are conventional or organic, learning how to 'kick the hay habit' may be the biggest financial boost you can give your cattle business!
From the Publisher: What's the most critical factor affecting profitability in most livestock enterprises? Not weaning weight. Not price received! Not even the color of your cows!! It's managing costs and specifically winter feed costs!!! This new book follows up on Jim's very popular MiG:Grassroots of Grazing to take you to the next level of getting in control of your operation with chapters on planning for winter grazing and a wide range of options for extending the grazing season.
