Greg and Jan Judy of Clark, Missouri run a grazing operation on 1620 acres of leased and owned land. Greg and Jan went from near bankruptcy in 1999 to paying off a 200 acre farm and house in 3 years with custom grazing on leased land and are completely debt free today. Today they own 4 farms and lease 12 farms. Planned grazing is used to graze cow/calf pairs, bred heifers, bulls, and stockers. They own a 350 head grass genetic South Poll cow herd, hair sheep flock, graze pastured pigs and pastured layers.
Greg has written two books on ranching practices, “No Risk Ranching” and “Comeback Farms.”
Greg has given numerous talks and schools all over the US, New Zealand & Canada teaching the benefits of planned grazing, leasing land, multi-species grazing & custom grazing. Greg quit his off farm job in 2009 and is now a full time rancher. The Judy’s website is: greenpasturesfarm.net.
