Natural Farming Methods Include High-Density or "Mob" Grazing
The essential economics of Natural Farming with grass fed beef are simply how to lower costs and raise profits by:
- Getting off the corn standard and switching to grass-fed beef cattle production,
- Figuring out how to direct-market your beef to local (big-city) clients who prefer to pay extra for higher-quality food,
- Going off feeding hay in the winter by mob grazing (intensively-managed grazing).

If you want an updated list, see the end of this post for the exact words to type into Google to get the same results (and links you can actually use.)
Of particular interest right now is this Greg Judy from near Columbia, Missouri. His is a name that keeps coming up. I’ll be quoting him in a later post to follow (tomorrow).
