Flack Sarah is the author of the Chelsea Green book Organic Dairy Production and, more recently, The Art and Science of Grazing: How Grass Farmers Can Create Sustainable Systems for Healthy Animals and Farm Ecosystems. She is a nationally known consultant on grazing and organic livestock management.

She is uniquely qualified as a teacher in the grazing movement in that she has both scientific training and hands on experience with livestock not only on her family’s farm but, because of her long time work as a certifier and consultant, on many grazing enterprises, small and large. She grew up on a Vermont family farm that used management-intensive grazing and mob stocking. She later studied Holistic Planned Grazing and pursued graduate studies on pasture management at the University of Vermont. She has written extensively about grass farming and is known for teaching workshops that take a practical approach to applying the science of grazing. Sarah has successfully helped many farmers create positive change in their pastures, soils, livestock, finances, and farm-family quality of life. Continue reading “BD Now!
