I can't believe how much I have managed to achieve in the past year and cant see myself farming any other way going forward. Thank you."

David McEwan, South Africa

"...I saw first hand this summer how beneficial this grazing practice is to increasing not only your stocking rates but your overall profits.

We took some great strides this past year when we started to work with Real Wealth Ranching to find a way to increase stocking rates..."

Ryan B. - Manitoba, Canada


"Your course has given us valuable knowledge required to increase stocking rate many times over, build soil and forage quality and quantity

I highly recommend your course to anyone wanting to learn the keys to creating true wealth on their farms."

Matt H. - Texas, USA

In the conversations I have had with your fellow Total Graziers, these were the 4 most common beliefs they had to overcome before enrolling.

Belief #1

"Rotational grazing is "working" now, soil is no longer improving but at least my livestock is in ok body condition"

While rotational grazing is much better than continuous grazing, it falls short of potential. The results that you can get by applying the four pillars of the Total Grazing Academy can be 3 to 5 times better as you enhance the symbiosis between your livestock, grass, soil, and you. Plus, by building on top of these 4 Pillars foundations you can keep improving your land's productivity.

Belief #2

"It's better for the grass if you don't graze it too hard"

First we need to define overgrazing, overgrazing happens when our livestock returns to re-graze a plant before it has fully recovered its energy reserves.

When we practice Total Grazing we only graze fully recovered forage which is then grazed with high harvest efficiency.

This means a couple things.

The rest periods will be 2-5 times longer than under rotational grazing!

This allows your best forage species the opportunity to grow deep and fat roots. It also means that our solar panel (the number of growing points per square yard) will be much bigger which means that both production and soil improvement will be enhanced.

Belief #3

"Total Grazing will leave bare soil"

This is probably the most common misconception.

Total grazing should not leave your soil bare.

If there is bare soil then you are not doing Total Grazing Program correctly.

Total Grazing focuses on high harvest efficiency of grasses that are fully recovered. This allows higher productivity and to stockpile on a larger area.

After Total Grazing, you will see your soil evenly covered by strong roots and manure evenly distributed with enough residual to cover the soil.

Belief #4

"I am already doing some type of Total Grazing, I don't think I need to enroll"

Implementing the Total Grazing Program involves the whole year with its different seasons and multi-years considerations.

It is not a single grazing event, we do consider the impact of every decision on the farm or ranch which we consider an organism.

When you grasp the importance of the 4 Pillars foundations working together, you will be able to apply them to your situation and bring optimal results to your life that will create profits and harmony with more time to enjoy it!

What's inside

Total Grazing Academy


Dive in Total Grazing Academy's 4 Pillar Foundation Courses!


Total Grazing Program

This is where you will change some paradigms. After learning what is overgrazing and how to avoid it, even at very high stocking rates, you will be ready to start grazing according to nature and improve your land faster.

This pillar consists of 6 modules with multiple lessons. Here is what you will learn:

  • The why behind the Total Grazing Program which shows how nature built our best soils.¬†
  • How to achieve continuous improvement in productivity by using your livestock to improve your soils. How to create more HUMUS, slow cycling carbon
  • Minimum and flexible infrastructure for more free time
  • How to maintain good body condition on stockpiled grass while saving on hay
  • Our mantra: Fat cows, Fat cows, Fat cows!

Adapted Genetics & Selection

Here's why it pays to learn from someone who's gone before you, having Adapted genetics goes a long way in eliminating high cost inputs, increasing stocking rate and having peace of mind. We can improve our grasslands faster with adapted animals that can mold the land on which they graze. 

This pillar consists of 5 modules and multiple lessons. Here's what you will learn:

  • How to select for maximum productivity per acre, under low inputs including nutritional adaptation and the overfilled animal package (forage conversion efficiency!)
  • Identify your best females, to select Bulls from. Much easier than other ways
  • Bull selection at different ages, starting when they are born
  • Advantages of creating your own composite, using adapted genetics, for your unique environment. This has to do with Epigenetics and is worth it!


Our number one objective is animal health!

When you understand how the rumen works, you will be able to keep your livestock in good health at a lower cost, and know why we graze the way we do.

Here's what you will learn:

  • The different grazing management for C3 and C4 forages
  • Increase your stocking rate while you save on hay by knowing what to supplement and how much, to maintain good body condition in the brown season, stockpile, depending on the type of grasses. Observe the manure, the gut fill, the udders, the calves. It will become like walking; you will know what to look for
  • How to adjust the carburetor in your livestock to improve health and conversion efficiency
  • The importance of routine and low stress on livestock performance
  • How the rumen functions and how this relates to grazing management

Optimal Calving Season

You will learn the huge importance of matching your livestock requirements with what your land naturally produces through the year. It is simple and straightforward but has huge implications in your cattle health, ease of management and profits. You can increase stocking rate up to 40% just by following nature having a short and optimal calving season:

  • The pathway to gradually shift to a short and optimal calving season (45 days long)
  • What to consider, on difficult environments, to tailor your own breeding and calving season
  • What is needed to¬†enhance weaning weights in short growing season environments with no high input costs
  • The strategy to focus on to increase fertility % drastically by following nature
  • Calving in Spring on toxic fescue country

The best time to start improving your land and maximizing your productivity was yesterday.

The next best time is TODAY.


We all wish that we ALREADY had an adapted and high fertile herd which thrives at high stocking rates under the Total Grazing Academy that improves the land. Having them calve in an Optimal Calving season and keeping their good body condition and health by applying your Nutrition knowledge. If you're feeling overwhelmed on how to achieve this or if it feels that it will take too long or it will be too costly, I hear you and I am here for you.

I truly believe that there has never been a better time to increase your Real Wealth by increasing your  stocking rate and improve your genetics.

There is no doubt that today's economics are harsher and land quality is much poorer than decades ago. More people are looking for solutions to improve their ranch or farm management. 

I do not want you to look back 6 or 12 months from now without improving your land and productivity, wondering what could have been if you only took action.

I want you to start and improve your land, improve your genetics, reach harmony in your life, maximize your profits and grass productivity at a low cost. And I want you to thank yourself for the decision you made today.

Warm regards,
