Voisin’s Laws of Fertiliser Application: This article reviews Andre Voisin's book Fertilizer Application (1965) and the detrimental effect of soluble fertiliser on the nutritional value and integrity of pasture and grazing livestock thereby questioning the value of human nutrition produced under these production systems.
Economics of Biodiversity: The Market Value of Biological Capital - Explores using fertiliser prices to value biological capital such as worm castings and livestock dung. It also compares nutrient dynamics between dairy and beef production systems from a cash basis to highlight which system has greater flexibility to buffer changes.
Cross Boundry Sustainable Farming: A New Approach to an Ancient System - Explains how four properties in northern NSW, Australia, combined their resources and grazed cattle as one mob over all the properties. Describes the social, financial, and environmental benefits of this endeavour.
Lessons for the Lucky Country: Worm Juice Boosts Soil Fertility, Turns Farm Around - Details the observations and experiences of Bruce Davison, Cattle farmer from Candelo, NSW, Australia, and how worm juice turned his farm productivity around for extremely little cost.
Livestock Nutrition: Building Blocks of Productivity: Mark Bader, director of Free Choice Enterprises, explains his science to balance diets of grazing livestock. This article explores basic rumen chemistry and the need to balance carbohydrates and proteins.
Livestock Nutrition: Three Diets: This article breaks down grazing livestock diet into three events; spring (excess nitrogen), summer, and winter (drought) diets. It describes what to observe in pasture, what happens in the rumen, how body metabolism changes, what effects each diet has on dung, and how to bring each into balance. These observations come from Mark Bader, director of Free Choice Enterprises.
Power of Observation: Grazing, Drinking Behaviour Indicate Environment Health - Drawing on the observations of animal nutritionist Mark Bader, director of Free Choice Enterprises, this article describes how livestock behaviour can indicate the health of their environment.
