We just received the new issue of Stockman Grass Farmer magazine and inside is a small feature entitled, “Allan Nation‘s Journal Jottings.” This is a little section to share some of the many notes Mr Nation jotted down while reading. Allan Nation died last November and thankfully, his wife, Carolyn, and friends are bravely moving forward with his vision of helping farmers become better graziers. Check out Stockman Grass Farmer. News, events, books, DVDs, CDs, and all sorts of archived information.
