Online conversations on soil health
Our guest starts with a short presentation, followed by conversation with participants.
“My name is Marcos Jeffers. I am a 5th generation cattle rancher living in northwestern Chihuahua, Mexico. My father first started Holistic planned grazing in 1986 at the family ranch. It was practiced successfully until 2011, when we decided to separate from the family ranch and start our own cattle company. We currently have a more intensive grazing program with a holistic plan behind it all that started in 2016. In 7 years, we have been able to increase our carrying capacity 3.2 times by taking care of our soil through regenerative practices.”
