About the Course
Holistic Management is a whole farm/ranch planning system and decision-making process that helps farmers, ranchers and land stewards better manage their agricultural resources to achieve maximum environmental, economic and social benefits. Holistic Management is a critical tool helping develop successful businesses while improving land health.
Each session is an in-depth two-day course that covers one or two modules of Holistic Management. All courses are taught by Savory Field Professional Rhona Lemke, along with her husband Chad Lemke, who is a fifth-generation full-time rancher. Together they have been practicing Holistic Management for two decades on their own family operation in the Texas Hill Country. Part of the time will be spent outside at their North Mason Ranch showing participants first-hand how Holistic Management is implemented in a real ranching situation, and how the brittle ecosystem of the Hill Country, or any other ecosystem, can be drastically improved.
The cost for each class is $395 and this includes lunch both days and all class materials, forms, handouts, etc. We limit each class to no more than 15 participants so everyone gets plenty of one on one time. At the end of these classes you will have a full Holistic Management Financial Plan and Grazing Plan, and a good understanding of how to implement holistic management in your own operation

Each class consists of a two-day session (Friday 8-5 and Saturday 8-4) and is hosted at the Richard P Eckert Civic Center, 1024 McKinley Avenue in beautiful Mason, Texas, the “Gem of the Hill Country”. Our home ranch and hub demo site is a couple of miles from town and each session will include some time outside at the ranch.
