Land, Livestock & Life: A grazier's guide to finance by Allan Nation.

Allan Nation, Editor of The Stockman GrassFarmer, wants you to know the new rules of today's Land and Livestock game for profit.

Since WW2, North American farmers and ranchers have become extremely successful at increasing the gross output of their land—yet virtually no one can pay for land despite its massive production.


The average buyer of farm and ranch land is not expecting any financial return from it. Its entire value is tied up in aesthetics and lifestyle. In this new economy, an occasional glimpse of wildlife is more valuable than any amount of lifestock carrying capacity, and a pretty pasture is worth double that of cropped land. Unfortunately, most agriculturists are still carrying in their heads the old paradigm of paying for land from its production. This has led to huge financial stress.

The rules of the game have changed.

Today's farming game is about gaining control of agricultural land rather than deeded ownership. Land, Livestock & Life shows how obtaining the grazing use of land is actually easier and cheaper than at any time since the frontier days.

The livestock business is also undergoing a similar shift in thought. Today, the profit emphasis is on the management of grass and livestock more than the ownership of grass and livestock. Buying and selling livestock management services is the new profit paradigm in today's ranching.

Land, Livestock & Life shows how to first start a business using the rules of this new game, then you can choose to invest your after-tax surplus in deed farm and ranch real estate—or you can choose not to. Either way, your livestock management enterprise can thrive.

The ultimate pleasant life in the country is not just a life out on the farm, but a livelohood from the farm as well.

This new book explains how to succeed in the new game.
