Our workshops are designed to be interactive, engaging and can be tailored to a wide range of experience levels. Below is a list of popular topics and upcoming events, but don't hesitate to contact us with your own ideas!

Principles of Holistic Management

This is our introduction to Holistic Management. In this course we provide an overview of the key elements of HM including decision-making, understanding the connection between profitability and ecological processes, financial management and managing people.

Planning for Profit

This workshop focuses entirely on financial management and planning. The key to profitability lies in planning for a profit rather than hoping one pencils out at the end of the year.

Planned Grazing

Planned grazing goes a long way toward sustaining your land and your financial well-being over the long run. Our Planned Grazing workshop will help you maximize your natural resource strengths and take advantage of every opportunity to ensure the long-term ecological and economic productivity of your operation.

Land Planning & Management

Planning for land health is another critical element in sustaining the long-term financial and ecological well-being of any land-based enterprise. This workshop will help you identify the keys to successful land planning and management for your property into the future.

Making Better Decisions

Decision-making is a highly undervalued element of ranching and land management businesses. The process of making strategic, informed, logical decisions is not as intuitive as one might think yet the process you use to make decisions has a huge impact on the success of your business over time. This workshop focuses on the elements of good decision-making and will help you streamline your operation and management to run a more efficient business over time.

Business Planning

A good business plan is an essential element to long-term stability in a world where market and environment variability are a given. Whether you're just starting out, considering new ways to diversify your operation or have been in the business for years, this workshop will help you ask and answer the right questions to make sure that you are focusing your time and resources in the right places at the right times.

Dealing with Drought

Drought is an severe reality for an increasing number of ranchers. Surviving a drought starts with good planning well before the drought begins and continues well beyond the end of a drought. In this workshop, you will learn how to plan for, manage during and manage after drought.
