“When I installed the cross-fences and started rotational grazing, I didn't have as much runoff in my stock dams.  It was a good thing because I was growing more grass and the bare spots were getting grassed over.  With assistance from NRCS, I was able to put in a pipeline, tanks, and more cross-fencing.”  
- Louie Bergner
