The cornerstones of ranch profitability are rooted in herd health, which in turn is rooted in soil fertility and animal nutrition, cattle breeding for better feed efficiency, and cattle breeding for longevity. Longevity, Newman Turner writes is the most critical factor for success in livestock breeding and production. In this book, Newman Turner explains that livestock illness is a result of bad farming practices and that real livestock health begins with true natural farming disciplines such as composting, biodiverse pastures with deep-rooted forages and herbs, and sub-soiling, as well as the avoidance of vaccines, pesticides, and artificial fertilizers.
