Thanks Brett, I am but in a different way open pasture in Wayne County New York and mono crop Corn and soybean. But I just purchased 121 acres of forest in West Monroe New York and i will like to change the way i raise cattle and instead of clear cut the forest for hay field i will forest farm. So this is new to me but i think is the right think to do and preserve the forest. I will like to learn more about Forest Farming and Silvopasture and share it with the people i know in South America and maybe help to preserve the rain forest by sharing with them what i will learn at the West Monroe land.
