HOLISTIC PLANNED GRAZING
Holistic planned grazing simulates the effects wild herds once produced on the land, resulting in greater land productivity, better water efficacy, greater biodiversity, and larger quantities of carbon sequestration through plant root systems. Through planning, monitoring, and re-planning, we are able to have these positive impacts on our environment, while also increasing wildlife habitat and producing the healthiest meat possible for our community. This is truly holistic.
At Gleason Bison we believe that practicing regenerative agriculture means we have a net positive impact on the land and our environment, and also the importance of data confirming this impact. Using a scientific methodology called Ecological Outcome Verification (EOV), we track, monitor and measure many indicators of soil health including soil carbon content, water efficiency, and percent of bare ground. Through this comprehensive and contextually relevant methodology, we make management decisions to improve soil health and land productivity resulting in carbon sequestration, improved wildlife habitat, and drought resilience.
