“Hoof impact, at high densities, allows for breaking any crust in the soil surface, improving gas interchange to where our best forage species thrive. Saliva, applied close to the crown of our forages, enhances regrowth by up to 80%.
Dung and urine contain microorganisms that enhance soil life. But if we apply chemicals to soil or livestock, we may end up killing soil and insect life.
This goes against maximum production with the low-cost biological methods required to increase humus content in our soils.
We must remember a ranch or farm is a living organism and should be treated as one.”
