More on the Coming Water Crisis.

Looks like we must have struck a nerve with yesterday’s post 30 Facts About The Coming Water Crisis That Will Change The Lives Of Every Person On The Planet. At least we sure have received a lot of mail about it.

It is what we have been doing for the past 30 plus years. We’ve had a lot of really good results but still have a long ways to go.

About Ranch Managers

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.

  1. I just wanted to tell you guys THANK YOU!!! I am so glad I stumbled across your blog site. I enjoy doing my morning agriculture news readings and I came across one of your articles recently and instantly thought, “These are our people!” Many of your articles and writings are frequent topics at the dinner table. We too manage our ranch holistically, focusing on high density animal impact and frequent paddock rotation, amoung other things. However, I will say holistic management has become so much more to us than just a ranch management and decision making tool, it has become a lifestyle to us, and one that we love!! We actually just finished a large ranching improvement dividing our largest pasture into 4 smaller pastures. We are looking forward to adding them to the rotation. Our ranch is about 4 to 5 our south of you in Mexico. We actually come to your neck of the woods a few times a year. We were just there in December and my fiancé and I kept saying, “man we need a ranch here.” You guys have a lot more vegetation than we do right now, plus it’s a beautiful part of the country. But we continue to do what we can with the lack of moisture and going on year four in the drought. Because of our management style we have been able to keep, and feed without supplementing, our cattle. Our neighbors always say, “You must get more rain than I do,” because we actually have grass!! Little by little we have had to destock at a rate of 60 to 100 head per year. But it has also proven to be a blessing and we have had a chance to also focus on our herd and genetics by getting ride of the weak ones and keeping the best ones with the traits we want our future herd to have. Anyway, I won’t bore you, but expect a few words from me once in a while.

    Kind Regards!!

    • Some very kind words. Perhaps we should become better acquainted. I did my PhD dissertation in Mexico back in 1975. We lived (me, my wife and three young daughters) at El Rancho Experimental La Campana for about a year. We enjoyed it very much and learned to love Mexico and her people.

      Please feel free to email me personally from any of the links on our web site at: http:/www.landandlivestockinternational.com

      And thank you for the encouraging words.
