    my husband, Jake and I were so excited to meet you in IA last weekend. We are following your website since spring-summer 2013 and find it very educational. You even answered some of our questions last year, as well.

    The new generation of farmers for sure will be more receptive to what you said in your presentation, we need to work with nature and for nature, while finding ways of being profitable – even if that means “to work” and move these animals daily with a back fence. I would like to send you a video of us moving cattle on Sudan grass last summer. We moved them in the paddock and out the paddock back in a sacrifice area (where we are making compost) every day, about 80 heads. No fuss, just peaceful working with nature and for nature. Cattle people hate moving cattle, but cattle love being moved, it’s in their instinct. We will keep coming back to your website and following your articles. God bless you!
