What Is MiG?

Here is something that might add a little clarity to your goals. Around here, our goal is to build the soil from the ground up. It is also a goal to do this with as little input from purchased machinery, seed, and chemicals, (Fertrell is excluded, as they are natural and not chemically based.).

The best place to start, that I have seen, is Management intensive grazing, or MiG.

What is MiG? Connie Krider of Hartville, Missouri describes it like this, "MiG can be described as a means of teaching livestock better eating habits through controlled portioning, while making improvements to the land and forages. For the livestock producer, management intensive means working smarter, not harder."

Well said, don't you think? Something to chew on, eh?
