"Our Amazing Grasslands" video series - July 2023 - Holt Family

In this seven and a half minute video, the South Dakota Grassland Coalition visits with the Holt Family in Wecota, South Dakota. The Holt family custom grazes the land to get the best out of their land and cattle. The Holt's careful management of the land benefits their operation, the soil, and wildlife.

"By having custom grazing enterprise, it was an effort to create a variable stocking rate. It gives us a lot more flexibility in the management of the grass to the best of its ability." - Gene Holt

About the video series

The “Our Amazing South Dakota Grasslands” campaign was created in 2018 with the goal of better communicating the importance and value of grasslands and soil resources throughout the state. This campaign strives to better show what South Dakota farmers and ranchers are doing to protect and enhance these resources. Each video was created utilizing footage from interviews with South Dakota farmers and ranchers and showcases footage of their farming and ranching operations.
