Women, Livestock, and the Land

In this video, NCAT Sustainable Agriculture Specialist Linda Coffey talks about the project she leads — Women, Livestock, and the Land (WLL). WLL aims to connect woman who are beginning pasture-based livestock enterprises with resources and peer-to-peer learning opportunities around soil-health principles, regenerative grazing, and low-stress livestock handling.

Through WLL, Linda has been able to meet some amazing producers, including those featured in this video, and manages a growing network of more than 60 women producers all working together to regenerate the land and build sustainable businesses.
