Healthy Soil
 
For the past year I have been implementing Healthy Soil Practices on my farm with exciting results including lower feed costs and healthier animals.  I am most excited to see a clear roll for alpacas in the climate battle we are currently facing.  Alpacas among other things are grazers that help maintain pasture while producing a number of climate friendly products.  It is my belief that every farm should consider a herd of alpaca not only for  the revenue they generate but the climate friendly benefits they provide.  I've written a whitepaper that discusses the benefits of Healthy Soil and the barriers to entry.  Please take the time to read the paper and email your thoughts to me.  I would be very interested in them.
 
Thank you for your time,
