Christina Allday-Bondy Posted over 2 years ago Campaign to get the UN to offer training to livestock owners and landowners in Allan Savory's Holistic Management techniques. Richard, Allan maintains that fire is ONE tool in the Holistic Management toolbox. I think he would say that in most cases it has been misused and so does not deliver the long term results possible with livestock. It also generates compounds much more damaging to the atmosphere. In the case of the Kerr, small controlled burns are followed relatively quickly by livestock, which is a somewhat refined application of both tools that tested out as delivering the complex habitat mosaic that the Kerr is managing for. (FYI, Donnie Harmel died about 10 years ago; and for political reasons Texas Parks and Wildlife is loathe to step into anything appearing to be an endorsement of HM.) I agree that each site needs its own management regime. But what we know is that, in seasonal moisture environments, livestock are a critical component of management that fulfill a role other tools do not. Timing of the livestock tool and it's use with other tools varies from site to site. Personally, I would not dismiss a UN resolution out of hand. It depends on what it says.
