Grass-fed beef is natural, healthier and provides a better/cleaner product for you and your family. At Prairie Creek Farms, we use a form of planned pasture management and grazing that is called Holistic high-density grazing (also called Mob Grazing). Holistic high-density grazing is when you take a large number of animals and put them in a small area for a short period of time. It’s a natural way to improve the grasslands without harmful fertilizers, pesticides and allow the grass the nutrients needed to survive harmful droughts. Pioneers, like Greg Judy and Dr. Ingham’s, put the methodology to the test to find natural ways to improve soil and grass production. The method provides bigger, longer and stronger root systems, allowing grass to reach deep into the earth, which helps them survive doubts. Dr. Ingham has pictures of root systems that are 18-foot long and ryegrass that had been grazed to 1-inch, three times, and still had root system 4 feet tall. All without chemical, all natural and requires a little more planning with daily pasture rotations. It’s all about soil biology and the magic that happens when you get a high density of Animals in a small area for a short period of time.
- Maximize the livestock density per acre
- No lime, fertilizers, seeding, chemicals or equipment
- Trampling plants to form litter bank, naturally adding nitrogen
- Increase in plant diversity and grass quality
- Naturally, increase microbial and soil biology
