The Power of Holistic Management in Producing Results and Collaboration
The Big Herd of 5000 steers all grazing in one herd and moving multiple times a day grabs the attention of any who visit the Birdwell and Clark Ranch. Yes, it is romantically reminiscent of the big herds of buffalo that once grazed this tall grass prairie in north central Texas and is an experience that never gets old. There is power in the Big Herd. That power grows from a strong environmental, economic, and social foundation; one that’s taken decades to create, is resilient, ever changing, regenerative. A foundation, a holistic goal, that produces results in improving rangeland conditions, offering economic opportunity, and building strong human relationships through collaboration.
