It’s nice to kick off the year by hearing from Greg Judy. If you’re not familiar with Greg, he’s well-known for two things.
The first reason he’s well known is that he has created a sizable farming operation by first custom grazing other people’s cattle before leasing many different farms. So Greg and I recap how he got started, mistakes he’s made and what he looks for in therms of farm properties. He shares his best tips on negotiating leases, what fencing tools to use and even what type of cattle to raise.
The second reason Greg is well-known to pasture-based farmers is that he practices mob-grazing, or putting lots (and I mean LOTS) of ruminants on a small piece of land and moving them multiple times a day.
With his experience, Greg has a lot to share. So let’s dive right into my discussion with Missouri farmer, Greg Judy.
