In Fertility Pastures, Turner details his methods of intensive pasture-based production of beef & dairy cows in a practical guide to profitable, labor-saving livestock production. He developed a system of complex blends of pasture grasses & herbs, with each ingredient chosen to perform an essential function in providing a specific nutrient to the animal or enhancing the fertility of the soil. He explains his methods of cultivation, seeding, and management. There are also chapters on year-round grazing, making silage for self-feeding, protein from forages, and pastures for pigs and poultry. He also details the roles individual herbs play in the prevention and treatment of diseases.
