Help us create TargetedGrazing.com, a website connecting land managers with professional graziers. Livestock grazing has become a popular tool for land managers to get away from mowing and herbicides. There is an ever growing demand for grazing services all over the country. Grazing projects use goats, sheep and cattle to replace conventional means of vegetation control. Often land managers save money while using these more environmentally friendly methods. At TargetedGrazing.com we want to help create the connections between land managers and graziers. Help us create this website for the healthy landscapes of tomorrow.
We need just 600 people to buy a t-shirt and our site will be up and running!
This site will be completely free to use -- This site will be completely free to use.
What this site will accomplish:
WE WANT MORE LIVESTOCK PRODUCED ON THE LAND. This website will be a tool to make livestock operations more profitable, hopefully reversing the downward trends in beef, sheep and goats numbers.
We want to provide a way for new people to enter animal agriculture. Targeted grazing is a method that can ad to a livestock operations bottom line. This makes starting a livestock enterprise more feasible.
We want to help people expand livestock grazing into new areas. Targeted grazing makes properties that were once off limits to livestock now available. People are now grazing livestock in town on vacant lots, in vineyards, and wetlands/upland prairies. Livestock is being used for grass and brush removal as a means of controlling wildfires. We want to help the livestock grazing industry expand to its limits.
We want to be a website for land owners and managers to find experienced graziers. This site will help connect land with livestock in the same region.
The site will have the following features:
First off, the site will be very easy to use. We will make a very intuitive easy to understand and navigate website.
Grazier Profiles where you create a profile for your operation, for free. In this section you will be able to describe your grazing capabilities and the projects you would be most interested in.
Land Managers will have a place to post projects, (also free). They will be able to post descriptions and photos of their projects.
There will be a Grazing info section, that will have an open source format. This means anybody will be able to post and edit grazing information. This section will be modeled after Wikipedias open source platform.
