Farming With the Wild

Farming with the wild is not a new concept. Farmers have often had to overlook wildlife preservation and landscape conservation to ensure short-term economic survival. But farmers can and should be encouraged to manage their lands more sustainably while protecting wildland values.

When properly managed, grazing can be both profitable and ecologically beneficial. Erosion is minimized, habitat is created, and fewer pesticides and pharmaceuticals are used.
