Sheepy Progress

Sheep, and other grazing animals help to create new pastures.  As Allan Savory’s work has shown, they are also essential to maintaining healthy grasslands and savannas. The RescEwe sheep are no different. This picture is of them 8 weeks ago, when they started mowing down the kochia stands. As you can see the kochia is more than twice their height.

We spread the seeds of mixed pasture grass, chicory, chard, daikon radish, three different legumes, and a couple types of wildflowers as they worked. They tilled the seed into the soil before they moved on to the next patch. Eight weeks later, this is what the area they mowed looks like.

They are almost done with the kochia. Before the weather gets too cold, and the grass dies back, they should get a chance feast on the fruits of their labors.

Our Mission is Not Impossible!

Our Mission

RescEwe exists wholly to serve sheep. Specifically, sheltering the homeless, caring for the neglected, healing the abused, and finding them good shepherds to continue caring for them. We also help educate shepherds and the caretakers of sheep, helping them to better care for the sheep entrusted to them.
