To have a productive farm that is at one with nature and where the livestock thrive, is a timeless pleasure.


“Live as if you will die tomorrow but farm as if you will live forever” speaks volumes as a life philosophy.


Every good livestock farmer knows that when their animals are happy they will be more productive in the long run. Beyond that, farming becomes a more rewarding and fulfilling way of living.

The heart of every good husbandry system is to have an approach that creates health as the norm and disease as the exception.

The Holsitic Lifepath Approach does that. It creates a way of seeing the farm as a whole and also where each and every animal can be seen as an individual.

By better understanding the Lifepaths of the individual stock, it becomes easier to craft an approach to husbandry that honours the needs of the different animals.


The happier the individual, then the happier the group. If all the groups are happy, then there will be a happier, healthier, more productive farm.  That is the Lifepath vision.
