Description: Featuring Opening Speaker Gabe Brown, Regenerative Rancher
Gabe Brown believes in and practices Holistic Management, a part of which is farming and ranching in nature’s image. He strives to solve problems in a natural and sustainable way. Improving soil health is a priority and no-till farming has been practiced on Brown's Ranch since 1993. A diverse cropping strategy, which includes cover and companion crops are used. Brown has now elimnated the use of synthetic fertilizers, fungicides, and pesticides. Brown uses minimal herbicide and is striving to eliminate it. He does not use GMOs or glyphosate. His ever evolving grazing strategy allows most of our pastures a recovery period of over 360 days. These strategies have allowed the health of the soil, the mineral and water cycles to greatly improve. In other words, the natural resources have benefited. This results in increased production, profit and a higher quality of life for Brown's family. He is moving towards sustainability for not only ours but future generations as well.
