Grazing for Carbon and Ecosystem Health
February 3, 2022 at 4 PM PST
Presenter: Gabe Brown
Gabe Brown, along with his wife Shelly and son Paul, own and operate Brown’s Ranch, a diversified 5,000-acre farm and ranch near Bismarck, North Dakota. The ranch consists of several thousand acres of native perennial rangeland along with perennial pastureland and cropland. Their ranch focuses on farming and ranching in nature’s image.
The Browns holistically integrate their grazing and no-till cropping systems, which include a wide variety of cash crops, multi-species cover crops along with all natural grass finished beef and lamb. They also raise pastured laying hens, broilers and swine. This diversity and integration has regenerated the natural resources on the ranch without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides.
The Browns are part owners of a state inspected abattoir, which allows them to direct market their products. They believe that healthy soil leads to clean air, clean water, healthy plants, animals and people.
Gabe and Brown’s Ranch have received many forms of recognition for their work, including a Growing Green Award from the Natural Resource Defense Council, an Environmental Stewardship Award from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, and a Zero-Till Producer of the Year Award, to name a few. Gabe has also been named one of the 25 most influential agricultural leaders in the United States.
This session will cover grazing management principles and techniques to improve carbon sequestration and overall ecosystem health.
(Friday) 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
