Integrating Livestock into a Cropping System for Sustainability & Soil Health

View this webinar to learn how the Small Angus Ranch in Burleigh County, North Dakota, is working toward the goals stated in the webinar title. Follow along the Small’s soil health road as the before and after of their recently installed cropping and grazing systems are illustrated. The Small’s started by addressing cropland, rangeland, and hayland resource concerns. Next, they supplied a bridge (cover crops, crop aftermath, etc.) that the livestock are using to connect all the land uses together. Additional topics will include the supporting conservation practices they installed, such as water developments, livestock pipelines, fences, and cover crop combinations. The webinar will conclude with the next steps the Smalls are considering to further strengthen the overall sustainability and soil health of the ranch, which will include wildlife and insects.
