Abstract

HOLISTIC LAND PLANNING AND HOLISTIC PLANNED GRAZING developed in tandem as both grew out of our new understanding about the role of time in grazing and trampling. To keep large herds of animals moving continually requires new thinking about the way fencing, water points, roads, and handling facilities are laid out—especially when you’re dealing with large tracts of land that require a considerable investment in that sort of infrastructure. Once we no longer were constrained to fencing based on soil types, many possibilities opened up for laying out the needed infrastructure in ways that could improve animal handling, reduce capital and running costs, and increase the profitability of ranching operations.
