KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Greg Judy 

  

 

Greg and Jan Judy of Clark, Missouri run a grazing operation on 1620 acres of leased and owned land. Greg and Jan went from near bankruptcy in 1999 to paying off a 200 acre farm and house in 3 years with custom grazing on leased land and are completely debt free. They own 4 farms and lease 12 farms. They graze cattle, hair sheep, pastured pigs and pastured laying hens.

 

Greg wrote a book in 2001, entitled "NO RISK RANCHING, Custom Grazing on Leased Land", which details the methods they used to build their operation from scratch. In 2008 Greg wrote a second book "COMEBACK FARMS, Rejuvenating Soils, Pastures and Profits with Livestock Grazing Management". Greg's second book covers all the methods they use with Holistic High Density Grazing, multi-species grazing, grass finishing animals, eliminating costly inputs.

 

Greg gives talks and schools all over the US, New Zealand, Germany, England and Canada teaching the benefits of Holistic High Density Planned Grazing (HHDG), leasing land, multi-species grazing, custom grazing, agroforestry and wildlife management. The Judys' hold an annual grazing school at their farm teaching the principles of HHDG. Greg quit his off farm job in 2009 and is now a full time rancher. The Judys' website is: greenpasturesfarm.net.
