Consultants often play a role like an extension agent—telling clients what to do. This approach always produces imperfect advice because the consultant is an outsider looking in. It is better to give the client the knowledge and then allow them to do the thinking for themselves. The consultant's role is confined to bringing in outside experience to stimulate the client's thinking.
Because the consultant is on the outside looking in means that he/she has a higher than average chance of being wrong. Consequently, we only work as consultants with people who are willing to learn how to make decisions and plan for themselves. This is the only way possible to proceed from the client's point of view and not ours.
Our approach to grazing management has, for the past 30 plus years, been the topic of much controversy and outright head butting.
All being some sort of derivative of what was known as the “Savory Grazing Method” back in the early 1980s, the concept goes by a multitude of names: Controlled grazing, intensive grazing, ultra-high density and holistic and rotational and rational and short term and mob and controlled and the obligatory acronyms M-I-G (managed intensive grazing) and then MiG to diminish the “intensive” part and then there is UHSD (Ultra High Stocking Density) and on and on.
We call what we do “Rangeland Restoration™” because we specialize in the arid, semi-arid, and savannah (former) grasslands and shrub-lands of the world. These lands cover over 1/3 of the earth's surface and are in an ever increasing “desertified” state.
Our consulting services are based on years of hands-on ranching experiences, university teaching and research in natural resource management and agricultural business. We have extensive ranch management experience all across the Southwestern United States and Latin America.
