Beautifully shot film.   I viewed this in a class when we were studying grasslands and I loved it so much I had to watch again.

Abraham deAlba-Avila says:

I have no idea why it has 2 thumbs down, I guess I can´t always satisfy everybody (to paraphrase M. Jagger). I can only comment in the cattle wrestling that we find inappropiate (the Ejido cowboy), but well at least they have made one stride in the right direction

Bob Kinford says:

This video should make it obvious that holistic management works.

Erich Knight says:

Judith D. Schwartz, (Author of : “Cows Save the Planet: And Other Improbable Ways of Restoring Soil to Heal the Earth”) pointed out this video on  Soil-Age ( a HM & soil-C Google discussion forum;!forum/soil-age

Noting what she saw in the Chihuahuan Desert Grasslands last year visiting Alejandro and Jesus’s ranches.

I would have liked to see more particulars of their changed management, their style of mob grazing, not just the 60% + increase grass cover but how many more Dung Beatles, subsequent increases in other macro & micro soil biota, soil moisture & soil-C.

HM advocates have many great before & after photographic results, sure proof of the pudding in the making, but I want hard data for each biom of grazing, in tons of Soil Carbon per year per acre.

Some practitioners are making 10 tons C/ac/yr.
If we all could achieve 1/2 that, Climate Change solved!


People prefer to fail conventionally than to succeed unconventionally.
