The Abundant Edge is becoming Regenerative Skills. Thank you for all your support!
Welcome friends and family to the very last episode of the Abundant Edge podcast. I know I’ve built this up to feel a little final, but the truth is that this is just the beginning. I personally feel like I've hit the limit of what I can present and the value I can bring to the podcasting space through the hour long interview format, and while I’m so grateful for all of the life changing insights and even connections that I’ve gained by speaking to my heroes and teachers in the regenerative fields, I think it’s time for a change.  The other side of this is that there are so many both new and established shows that are rocking the interview format. I’ve especially loved and highly recommend Sustainable World Radio with Jill Cloutier, The Permaculture Podcast with Scott Mann, Green Dreamer with Kamea Chayne, and Regenerative Agriculture with John Kempf. While there are tons more great shows with regenerative messages out there, those have been the ones I’ve gone back to and gotten ideas and inspiration from time and again, not only for the quality conversations with great guests that they feature, but for the excellent sound and production quality, which really makes a difference when you listen to as many podcasts as I do. So by changing formats in the next season, I know the bases for longer form interviews about regenerative topics are still well covered.  On the other hand, I’ve been motivated lately to bring more storytelling and condensed actionable information to those of you who don’t have as much time to commit to 30 minutes or more of an interview and are looking for the cliff notes and tangible steps that you can take right now, today, to strive for a regenerative future.  I also keep hearing from those of you listening that you want to participate and get involved, and for that reason I’ll be creating resources beyond just the podcast so those of you who learn better with visual aids, to-do lists, and note packets can revisit the information in the show without having to go back and listen to the whole show again. But I’ll tell you more about those bonus materials in a bit Resources: https://sustainableworldradio.com/ https://www.thepermaculturepodcast.com/ http://regenerativeagriculturepodcast.com/ https://greendreamer.com/ https://soundcloud.com/hugrecords?ref=clipboard&p=a&c=1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnc95-EPUwk

DIRT Workshop Roundup: Strip Tillage, Cover Crops, Relay Crops, and Grazing
This is our final episode of season three. What a great season it has been! To close out season three, we wanted to bring you a highlight reel from the recent DIRT workshop. However, with two full days of material and dozens of experts weighing in on a variety of topics - there was no way to condense things down to a 30 minute Soil Sense episode. So instead, I chose to pull clips from four different individuals, each of which weighed in on a different panel during the DIRT Workshop. Today’s guests were chosen not only for great information and stories, but also because they have not yet been featured on this podcast.You’ll hear from Steven Schuster, a farmer in Minto, North Dakota, talking about strip tillage, then will hear from Stefan Gailans, who is with the Practical Farmers of Iowa talking about cover crops, then Russ Gesch from USDA ARS based out of Morris, MN who shared about relay cropping, and will finish today’s episode with rancher Jerry Doan from McKenzie, ND who describes some of this practices grazing cover crops. “It’s not necessarily about getting the highest yield. It’s about having the most profit from the yield that you are getting, and controlling risk.” - Steven Schuster “A living cover crop is still standing up. Those row units can move through that a little better, so that they don’t plug. They can cut through the cover crop in the soil, get good depth control, and cover up that furrow again.” - Stefan Gailans (on planting soybeans green) “We call these winter oilseed ‘cash cover crops’, because we’re wanting to harvest them to tap into new markets, but also getting those environmental benefits of using it as a cover crop.” - Russ Gesch, Ph.D. (on relay cropping camelina/soybean) “When I was growing up, it was wheat and summer fallow, and half of that soil is in South Dakota because that’s where it blew to back in those days. And I didn’t know if we could bring those soils back...and we’ve been really impressed by how we ARE bringing those back.” - Jerry Doan This Week on Soil Sense: * Steven Schuster, farmer from Minto, ND talks about strip tillage * Stefan Gailans, research and field crops director for the Practical Farmers of Iowa talks about cover crops * Russ Gesch, Ph.D., research plant physiologist with USDA ARS in Morris, MN on relay cropping camelina * Jerry Doan, rancher from McKenzie, ND on grazing cover crops Connect with Soil Sense: * _Soil Sense Initiative _ Soil Sense Podcast is hosted by _Tim Hammerich_ of the _Future of Agriculture Podcast_.

Although some may refer to him as the Hot Rod Farmer he is the host of the Idle Chatter Podcast, creator of farmmachinerydigest.com, and now the host of Machinery Digest Radio! Ray Bohacz is a sweet corn farmer from Warren County, New Jersey with a knack for writing. Here today to share with us some of his insight from over 3000 articles written about how paying attention to the 3 legs of the farm profit stool can help you be a more profitable farmer. * 3 Legs to the Profit Stool (Should get Equal Attention) * Agronomy/Animal Husbandry * Marketing * Maintenance/Equipment * Reminder that profit is not what you make in total, it’s what you get to keep in the end. * When thinking about the end of the year or the time of year. It’s always good to reflect on how you have ran your business. * What went right? * What went wrong? * What can I do better? * Now think about this for your equipment. Think about how this effects your profit. What went wrong? Right, Etc * Very rarely if something went wrong was it…. * Bad luck * An accident * Freak rare event * Most of the time it’s from neglect or “closing your eyes” * Talking and bragging about equipment up keep and maintenance isn’t “sexy” (except for Andy Pasztor) We need to make it a focus, something cool to talk about, something to bring up at the coffee shop or CO-OP * People have a passion for high yields and selling at the top of the market. * Nobody brags about a good shop routine or minimal break downs * A lack of attention to your fleet can directly affect your profitability. * You can’t control the weather, have little control over the markets, and can rely on technology advancements in genetics (plant and animal). * But what you have full control over is how you maintain and prepare your equipment for the tasks * By properly maintaining equipment you minimize break downs, timely downtime, increase efficiency, and extend the life of your assets. * So how do we do this? How do we get started? * An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure * Make small changes to make a big difference * Take an ounce from 16 diff places to add up to one pound of cure * If you don’t know, you need to ask someone who does – HotRod Farmer Contact info * Find the low hanging fruit and build on it month after month * Examples of things covered on his show that might be helpful to start with (Low Hanging Fruit) * How to protect an engine during storage. - Keeping mice away from electricals? * Getting the best from your A/C system. – keeping it cold * To get the most ROI… read the manual AGAIN! * There is more to modern engine oil than the SAE rating. * How clean is your fuel storage tank? – Should you be treating your fuel? * Learn the difference between new, remanufactured and rebuilt. * If you soil test you also need to fluid test too! * An efficient way to keep parts in order. * Overlooked pre and post harvests procedures – what about spring? * Getting the most out of tires - Tire pressure and soil compaction * Any Others? * Three simple steps to decrease equipment failure and down time? * Any last comments to share with the listeners? * What is a common characteristic the most successful farmers you know all have in common?
