​We were recently at a conference in Idaho where we spoke about our sustainable farming practices. While in Idaho we had the unique opportunity to visit Cunningham Ranch​. ​The Cunningham Ranch consists of 1,800 acres of private land plus 100,000 acres of public rangeland shared with neighboring ranchers located in Jordon Valley Oregon. Our friends Sean and Liz Cunningham are 4th generation ranchers and their family originally settled the ranch in 1914. Today the ranch raises grassfed cattle, lambs and pastured hogs and is also home to lots of wildlife including Mule Deer, Elk, Antelope, Sage Grouse, Pheasant, Quail and even some Cougars.​ We actually meet Sean and Liz​​ at a previous conference in southern Georgia last year. Check out the video below to see more:

This is a grazing technique that we first learned about from professional graziers in South America. We're now using this adaptive grazing tool during certain times of the year.
