Rich Bradbury started as a rancher as a kid, worked in the Oil Fields in technical roles, worked on a ranch in Russia, and is back where he started, ranching in Oregon.

His overall strategy involves adding leased land, managing, raising cattle on his ranch and with a group to produce high-quality beef, AND he is a teacher.

To top it all off, he is Dyslexic.

In this podcast, we talk about it all. Dyslexia, ranching, soil, the impact of urban sprawl on the land, the importance of the land to society, regeneration of soil, education… and I’m sure there is more. 🙂

Rich is technically able to solve problems be it out in the Oilfield, or a field where he is running cattle.

A couple of notable projects are Field 55, and the old bunkhouse.

Field 55 is 140 acres or more and has had issues for a long, long time. Experimenting, testing, measuring results is getting this field to produce more. We talk about this a bit on the podcast.

Also on the property is an old bunkhouse, which is being modified to eventually serve as lodging for guests that would like to have a unique experience, a bit different than just any old place.

We also talk at length about Dyslexia – and the impact both positive and negative. Some interesting thoughts you will likely find interesting.

Rich is pretty approachable, and here is how to get in touch with him and/or learn more:

Trent Hendricks is owner/operator of Cabriejo Ranch which he runs with his wife and a whole passel of kids (you won’t believe how many!). They raise grassfed cattle and sheep in more than just a sustainable manner, but in a Holistically Managed Regenerative model.

Trent has a huge focus on “Regeneration” which seems to be at the core of everything he does. We definitely discuss the topic of “Regeneration” throughout this recording, including what exactly this means in practice.

Trent is Vice President on the Board of Directors for the AMERICAN GRASSFED ASSOCIATION. As part of the AGA he is also involved with the BUSINESS & FINANCE committee, GRASSFED STANDARDS AND CERTIFICATION COMMITTEE, and the Marketing Committee.

Trent has experience as a cheesemaker, works with horses, raises AKC Anatolian Shepherds, and has the mindset to constantly learn.

Trent endeavors to apply smart scientific principles to improve the soil, increase performance, increase biodiversity, water retention and much more.

We delve into a bit about the politics of food, land, life, and more.

Of particular note is the work Trent is doing to graze land used for Solar Farming. Instead of the land being subjected to chemicals and mowing equipment, the soil is being improved and the animals are being fed. Definitely a win/win.

Trent was very informative, emphatic at times, and this was a fun meandering conversation.
