Episode 110: Stock Cropping and Regenerative Innovation with Zack Smith

Zack Smith is a fifth-generation farmer from northern Iowa. He is the owner and operator of Smith Seed and Agronomy, LLC, and co-founder and CEO of Stock Cropper, Inc. Zack previously worked in seed production and chemical retail as a certified crop advisor and then as a seed rep while farming on the side. He eventually became interested in soil health and started experimenting with strip-tilling and using cover crops, which marked the beginning of his shift towards regenerative agricultural. Zack recently developed a system called “stock cropping,” a regenerative farming system that raises row crops in conjunction with multiple species of livestock simultaneously in the field. He and his business partners, Sheldon Stevermer and Lance Peterson, went on to develop the Cluster Cluck 5000, an autonomous, self-moving barn. In this episode, Zack and John discuss: The concept of stock cropping and its benefits to plant and soil health Developing barns for mobile grazing that integrate multiple species of livestock Implementing a rotational grazing system with frequent moves to optimize animal impact and pasture utilization Developing high-quality pasture mixes using cool-season and warm-season species The importance of innovation and collaboration in advancing regenerative agriculture practices Additional Resources To learn more about stock cropping and the Cluster Cluck 5000, visit https://thestockcropper.com/ About John Kempf John Kempf is the founder of Advancing Eco Agriculture (AEA).

Episode 94: Challenging Assumptions About Regenerative Agriculture with John Kempf hosted by Future of Agriculture

In this special episode, hosted by Tim Hammerich and the Future of Agriculture Podcast, Tim and John Kempf will challenge several commonly held assumptions about the future of agriculture. Take regenerative agriculture, which is often defined by the ability to improve soil health and sequester carbon. But John Kempf says these are outcomes, even by-products, not the complete definition of regenerative. In this episode, Tim and John discuss: What it means to be regenerative AEA observations from working with over 10,000 growers and 4 million acres AEA’s Wefunder campaign How to look at agriculture problems and solutions through a regenerative lens Future of Agriculture explores the people, companies, and ideas shaping the agriculture industry's future. Every week, Tim Hammerich talks to the farmers, founders, innovators, and investors to share stories of agtech, sustainability, resiliency, and the future of food. Future of Agriculture believes innovation is an important part of the future of agriculture, and real change comes from collaboration between scientists, entrepreneurs, and farmers. Lead with optimism, but also bring data.
