Multi-Species Grazing Works for Nebraska Rancher
The most recent issue of the Grazing Lands News from the National Grazing Lands Coalition includes a story on Nebraska’s Double M Ranch and Mike and Fran Wallace’s efforts in multi-species grazing.
“I believe there is an opportunity to benefit the range and economically benefit the operator,” says Mike Wallace of multi-species grazing – which involves grazing two or even three species of livestock together on rangeland.
The Wallaces currently run 40 cows, 230 ewes and 40 nannies on several hundred acres that are cross-fenced into small paddocks for rotational grazing. Their land is a mixture of mid-tall grass prairie, former cropland and abandoned cattle feedlots.
