Grazing Resources for Ranchers
Lee Rinehart, an agricultural specialist with the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT), has compiled a list of resources for farmers and ranchers around adaptive grazing.
Adaptive grazing combines regular and careful observation with management-intensive grazing practices. The NCAT resources include videos, podcasts, and publications to help guide those looking to improve soil health and turn a profit. The resource list can be found at http://www.ncat.org/adaptive_grazing/
It also can be found by going to the NCAT website at www.ncat.org and searching for “Adaptive Grazing.” Then click on “Adaptive Grazing – You Can Do It.”

Sheep and goat enterprises offer diversification opportunities for small and limited-resource farmers. This Small Ruminant Toolbox was developed by the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) in order to provide a collection of information for small ruminant producers and educators. The Small Ruminant Toolbox includes many publications, presentations and other resources that will be helpful to small ruminant producers.
You can download the Toolbox from Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education.
