Holistic Management is a new management approach helping people improve their quality of life, generate wealth and manage their resources. It’s a process of goal setting, decision making and monitoring that people throughout the world are using to restore vitality to their ranches, businesses, communities, and the natural resources we all depend on.
These workshops are highly recommended for producers by past participants. Kayla Anderson, Lemmon, S.D., who attended this workshop said, It really made us think more outside the box of how we run our operation. We learned that there really is no wrong way of doing things and to be more proactive with our thinking ahead instead of being reactive to possible outcomes to situations.
The cost of each workshop is $200 which includes textbook, workbook, lunch and breaks. Each ranch may bring an additional participant at a cost of $100. Class size is limited to 30 people, so call now to pre-register. To pre-register or for more details, call Tatanka RC&D at 605-244-5222 ext 3.
