Holistic Management Handbook

Allan Savory and Jody Butterfield


This book is designed as a practical companion for people who actually manage land and any others who want to know what responsibility for land really means. Most of all, however, it is written for the ranchers and farmers who make a living directly from the earth itself. Upon them rests the fate of everyone else.

The companion book to this one, Holistic Management: A Commonsense Revolution to Restore Our Environment, by Allan Savory with Jody Butterfield, attempts to clear the view from theory toward practice. This handbook looks the other way – from practice toward theory. In fact, however, both the theory and the practice evolved together and are still evolving, and you, too, should cut away at the thicket in your mind from both sides.

The two books cover much of the same ground but from different perspectives. You need both. Don't risk resources on the information in this book without reading the textbooks, and don't manage your operation from the advice in the textbook without mastering the details explained here.
