Jim Berlier recognized in current NACD eResource News Brief  (Click on link; Scroll down to article)

 

Since implementing a more conservation-focused management system, Berlier says he has been able to double his soil organic matter to two percent and he now raises three times the amount of grass with the same level of rainfall. He no longer has the additional expense of supplementing the grazing with feeding his cattle hay. And in times of drought, Berlier says he still has a lot of grass and his cows are still fat.
