Quality Pasture 2nd edition by Allan Nation revised by Jim Gerrish
QUALITY PASTURE 2nd EDITITON
~How to create it, manage it, & profit from it~
Allan Nation wrote Quality Pasture in 1995. At that time he relied heavily on the best agricultural grassfed practices he discovered during travels from Argentina to Europe. The nascent grassfed movement in North America was on the cutting edge, yet limited in the number of practitioners.
Significant changes have occurred in the pasture-based livestock industry since the 1st edition was published. Many of the ideas Allan described have gone by the wayside, others have grown and flourished as he predicted.
This 2nd edition revised by Jim Gerrish includes some of Allan's original chapters almost intact. Others have beed edited, updated or newly written by Jim to cover current knowledge and thinking in the pasture-based community.
This updated 2nd edition provides a comprehensive guide to creation and utilization of intensively managed quality pastures for profitable and regenerative grass farming. New chapters cover what constitutes quality pasture and how to create it; forage testing - why it's important and how to take samples; pasture irrigation; grass-based dairying; and more.
