Use the Cattle to Build the Soil, Not the Other Way Around

Gary Zimmer, author of The Biological Farmer, says biological farming puts the fun back in farming and at Wilton Park in Australia that statement has been validated. One look at the smile on Henry Sheehan's face would convince anyone that he was having way too much fun. Henry is manager of Wilton Park, where FigTrees Organic Farms produces and markets award winning organic beef. Henry's enthusiasm for the eco-system he nurtures is a pleasure to witness. And be warned, it is contagious. The beauty of this shift in focus is that it increases biodiversity, increases the yield per acre, and increases profit, all while sequestering an ever-growing amount of carbon in the soil and making the land more resilient to drought.
