So what is this tour i’m on? and why? For one, Chile and Argentina have long been on my bucket list and what better time to go than with other travelers interested in livestock, soil, grass, water, and community improvement!
Several years ago, a short sample of holistic management resources was offered at FSRC and it made some good sense, but mostly we adopted the grazing management bits which Jim Gerrish taught and left the rest. Oh, well, i do use the testing decisions to some extent. My questions, however, tend to be, will it pencil? and can a child do it?
Short history is that Stan Parsons and Allan Savory teamed up to start Ranching for Profit. For whatever reason, they split and Stan continued Ranching for Profit (now called Ranch Management Consultants) and Allan started Holistic Management Resources (now called Holistic Management International). then a few years back, Allan left HMI and started Savory Institute which now answers to Savory Global.
I enjoy the camaraderie , the networking, and learning from others. After this morning, no internet until i get back to Santiago sometime Friday night.
