Have you ever heard that cows are bad or that they're destroying the planet? Of course you have. But with the strategies laid out step-by-step in this course, you can implement cattle grazing management that actually heals the earth, heals the landscape, improves soil, reduces weeds, brings more pollinators, and improves your farm's profitability.

That's right. We can continue enjoying hamburgers and steaks. By the end of the course, you’ll find out cows are our best friends, not our enemies.

This production model is scale-independent. Whether you have 2 cows or 2,000 cows on 2 acres or 2,000 acres, this plan will work for you.

Introducing the Cattle Grazing Management Course!

Lunatic farmer Joel Salatin shares the insight he's gained through more than 60 years of farming. He'll walk you step-by-step through the process of managing your cattle grazing for maximum benefit.

By the end of this course, you'll understand the grass growth cycle and how to move cattle to promote healthy grass, soil, and animals.

The Cattle Grazing Management course includes:

  • 24 video sessions
  • 5+ hours of video
  • Downloadable PDF transcripts for each video lesson
  • Homework PDFs for each lesson that guide you through the essential steps
  • Expert insight from an award-winning farmer

Your Strategic Planned Grazing Program

The whole idea of grazing management is to tap into grass's s-curve growth cycle. Grazing is managing the meeting between the pruner and forage. This course teaches everything you'll need to execute strategic cattle grazing to benefit grass, soil, the environment, and the animals.

The course starts with the ecological principles of grass growth and then drills down on the strategies for making a plan, including details like:

  • Where the cows should be
  • How to determine cow days per acre
  • How to manage water and shade
  • How to reduce hay consumption
  • How to control the animals
  • How to think about margins
  • How to make decisions about profitability

We'll cover budget-friendly options that allow this plan to work even for small enterprises.

After you've gone through the course, you'll be able to place the right number of cows on the right place for the right amount of time. This approach promotes productivity and profitability.

Purchase Foundations of Farming & Homesteading, and you'll get access to ALL of our courses, including this one. (You'll also get access to all courses we release in the future, at no additional cost!)

About Joel Salatin

Joel Salatin calls himself a Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer.

Others who like him call him the most famous farmer in the world, the high priest of the pasture, and the most eclectic thinker from Virginia since Thomas Jefferson. Those who don’t like him call him a bio-terrorist, Typhoid Mary, charlatan, and starvation advocate.

With a room full of debate trophies from high school and college days, 12 published books, and a thriving multi-generational family farm, he draws on a lifetime of food, farming and fantasy to entertain and inspire audiences around the world. He’s as comfortable moving cows in a pasture as addressing CEOs in a Wall Street business conference.

On his family farm in the Shenandoah Valley, Polyface Farms, Joel produces meat he describes as "beyond organic", which are raised using what the farm describes as environmentally responsible, ecologically beneficial, sustainable agriculture.

Joel has been featured in National Geographic, Smithsonian, Ominvore’s Dillemma, Food Inc. and many others.

"He's not going back to the old model. There's nothing in county extension or old-fashioned ag science that really informs him. He is just looking totally afresh at how to maximize production in an integrated system on a holistic farm. He's just totally innovative."

The whole idea of grazing management is to tap into grass's s-curve growth cycle. Grazing is managing the meeting between the pruner and forager. This course teaches everything you'll need to execute strategic cattle grazing to benefit grass, soil, the environment, and the animals (and your bank account too).

What Others Are Saying:

"In all my years of homesteading, I have never seen anything like Joel Salatin’s Farm Like a Lunatic series!

"From conferences, to YouTube videos, to magazine articles, there are many resources out there to learn various aspects of homesteading, but most fail to address the more serious and less-talked-about issues of homesteading. Yet Joel tackles these common issues in this series. He covers topics like: how to manage finances, interpersonal relationships, increasing farm profitability, how to design a landscape, and so much more.  

"I only wish that this series was available when I first started homesteading. Foundations in Farming and Homesteading can save you thousands of dollars, as well as can save you a countless amount of time and energy."

"Since we started Apricot Lane Farms a decade ago, Joel Salatin’s innovative and inspiring philosophy has deeply influenced the way we see our own farm. From soil building and grazing strategies to modeling how to sell your product, he’s a “nose to tail” farming system resource.

His new online course “Farm Like A Lunatic” is a treasure trove of practical knowledge for aspiring farmers. He’s especially good for those interested in understanding unique methods of farming that regenerate both the land of the farm and the spirit of the farmer.

I wish a course like this existed when we started Apricot Lane Farms. Anyone who has a fantasy to farm but isn’t quite sure which steps to take to make it to reality should consider this course."
