Farming Forward: How to grow more soil with advanced grazing

What does soil look like after 20 years of applying the GRASS principles? (Those are covered in this video)

A soil pit in this pasture that Steve Kenyon of Greener Pastures Ranching has grazed cattle on for about 20 years shows the results of using animal impact and strategic rest periods to build not just soil armour, but water-holding organic matter levels as well.

In this episode of Farming Forward, Kenyon digs into the soil profile to show how soil composition and aggregation can change over time, and demonstrates how to measure soil compaction, too.
