How Does Natural Farming Affect You - and Mob Grazing Data Your Should Know

Natural Farming Methods Include High-Density or "Mob" Grazing

Natural Farming with Mob Grazing
The essential economics of Natural Farming with grass fed beef are simply how to lower costs and raise profits by:
  1. Getting off the corn standard and switching to grass-fed beef cattle production,
  2. Figuring out how to direct-market your beef to local (big-city) clients who prefer to pay extra for higher-quality food,
  3. Going off feeding hay in the winter by mob grazing (intensively-managed grazing).
The point is that the more naturally the animals are raised, the healthier their meat is. They cost less to raise, as well. Meaning the better-for-you products come from farms where only natural farming methods are used - and these people are more sustainable than other models. (I have more pages on this site which deal with this in greater detail.)

I had this long list of PDF’s to give you and included the links to them as I found them on Google and updated them later by hand to make sure they work. If you want an updated list, see the end of this post for the exact words to type into Google to get the same results (and links you can actually use.)
