I am often asked why my blog signature includes the numbers “419.” Today is the one day out of the year when I always explain that.
419 stands for April 19th—a date upon which occurred several important events associated with the fight against tyranny. The first was the “shot heard ‘round the world” at Concord Bridge in 1775. The final assault on the Jewish Warsaw ghetto (1943) and the coup d’etat in Laos (1964) occurred on this day. More recently April 19, 1993 was the date when the final assault on and murder of the Branch Dividians in Waco, Texas occurred. It was also the date in 1995 of the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.
In the days of America (before the FedGov went out of control ), this day was observed as “Patriots’ Day.” Y’all reflect on that while you have a great “Patriots’ Day.” — jtl, 419
A Handbook for Ranch Managers. In keeping with the “holistic” idea that the land, the livestock, the people and the money should be viewed as a single integrated whole: Part I deals with the management of the natural resources. Part II covers livestock production and Part III deals with the people and the money. Not only would this book make an excellent basic text for a university program in Ranch Management, no professional ranch manager’s reference bookshelf should be without it. It is a comprehensive reference manual for managing the working ranch. The information in the appendices and extensive bibliography alone is worth the price of the book.
Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual. This is the ideal squeal to A Handbook for Ranch Managers. Although the ecological principles remain the same, what was originally known as “The Savory Grazing Method” now answers to a multitude of different names: ranching for profit, holistic management, managed grazing, mob grazing, management intensive grazing, etc. Land & Livestock International, Inc. uses “Restoration Grazing” under its “Managing the Ranch as a Business” program.” No mater what you call it, this summary and synopsis will guide you step by step through the process and teach you how to use it as it was originally intended. No more excuses for failing to complete your grazing plans.
