My name is Duane Thompson. I have been applying HM principles to our mixed farming SYSTEM in the Parkland region of Saskatchewan for about 15 years. I density graze 1000 cow/calf pairs moving them every 1-4 days on 40-80 acre padocks. Organic Mater levels in this area can commonly be below 2%. We have taken it to 6% on some land that has been in the SYSTEM the longest. We have healthy animals and grow more and more forage every year, more than I ever dreamt posible. I realy have to wonder how much field scale practical experience the critics of the Savory system have. I know I won't be changing anytime soon as our operation is more profitable and supporting more households than ever before.
