I am proud to say that I have never even so much as been in a Chipotle restaurant and have no intention of ever entering one. — jtl, 419

What’s with the PDF? You know, public display of firearms? Chipotle Mexican Grille apparently thinks likewise because they’ve told customers not to bring assault rifles—or any guns—into their restaurants. We’ve made it well-known we are offended by Chipotle’s marketing campaigns that disparage livestock producers for using FDA-approved animal health products. That’s why we refuse to patronize the chain that sells those overpriced burritos. Now, however, Chipotle enters the debate on another hot-button issue by saying, “The display of firearms in our restaurants has now created an environment that is potentially intimidating or uncomfortable for many of our customers.”
A Handbook for Ranch Managers. In keeping with the “holistic” idea that the land, the livestock, the people and the money should be viewed as a single integrated whole: Part I deals with the management of the natural resources. Part II covers livestock production and Part III deals with the people and the money. Not only would this book make an excellent basic text for a university program in Ranch Management, no professional ranch manager’s reference bookshelf should be without it. It is a comprehensive reference manual for managing the working ranch. The information in the appendices and extensive bibliography alone is worth the price of the book.
Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual. This is the ideal squeal to A Handbook for Ranch Managers. Although the ecological principles remain the same, what was originally known as “The Savory Grazing Method” now answers to a multitude of different names: ranching for profit, holistic management, managed grazing, mob grazing, management intensive grazing, etc. Land & Livestock International, Inc. uses “Restoration Grazing” under its “Managing the Ranch as a Business” program.” No mater what you call it, this summary and synopsis will guide you step by step through the process and teach you how to use it as it was originally intended. No more excuses for failing to complete your grazing plans.
