Soil health practices can make farms and ranches more productive and more profitable, but that isn’t the only reason to use conservation methods. Improved soil health means improved operational resilience and sustainability, and that means it’s more likely the farm or ranch will still be around for the next generations. Soil health isn’t just for your bottom line — it’s for your kids.
This video highlights the children of producers who are learning the value of soil health practices as they grow up. When they eventually take over their operations, they won’t know any other way to farm. The improvements they will make to their soil, their farms and ranches, their landscape, and their communities will be the true legacy of their parents.
