About: Join Heifer USA and special guest, Greg Judy, at Heifer Ranch for a very special workshop focused on regenerative livestock management techniques!
Greg and Jan Judy of Clark, Missouri run a grazing operation on 1620 acres of leased and owned land. Greg and Jan went from near bankruptcy in 1999 to paying off a 200 acre farm and house in 3 years with custom grazing on leased land and are completely debt free. They own 4 farms and lease 12 farms. They graze cattle, hair sheep, woods pigs, pastured laying hens, sawmilling and grow shitake mushrooms.
Greg wrote his first book in 2001, entitled “ NO RISK RANCHING, Custom Grazing On Leased Lan d”, which details the methods they used to build their operation from scratch. In 2008, Greg wrote a second book “ COMEBACK FARMS, Rejuvenating Soils, Pastures and Profits with Livestock Grazing Managemen t”. Greg’s second book covers all the methods they use with Holistic High-Density Grazing, multi-species grazing, grass finishing animals, eliminating costly inputs.
Greg gives talks and schools all over the US, New Zealand, Germany, England & Canada teaching the benefits of Holistic High Density Planned Grazing, leasing land, multi-species grazing, custom grazing, agroforestry and wildlife management. Greg quit his off-farm job in 2009 and is now a full-time rancher. The Judy’s website is: www.greenpasturesfarm.net
