Champions of Grazing Innovation 6: Michael Gooden

Michael Gooden is a Rotational Grazing advocate who was first introduced to the concept at a 2008 KLR marketing course (Jim Lindsay, Grahame Rees & Rod Knight Marketing course). Following that, he embraced the principles of Holistic Management through the perspective of Alan Savory and a 2011 training stint with Bruce Ward. As a member of 8 Families, Michael is part of a community of like-minded producers who are passionate about regenerative farming.

Michael’s main enterprise was a trading enterprise – mainly cattle, using KLR and Holistic Management practices. In 2016, Michael founded Old Man Creek Grass Fed Bulls. He was driven by the idea to breed bulls adapted to rotational grazing, and as a result he was able to produce superior 100% grass-fed beef from bulls that efficiently converted grass into a profitable beef enterprise. Michael has been using MaiaGrazing since then to help make important grazing decisions.

In 2019, Michael completed The Farming & Grazing For Profit™ School by RCS Australia which brought to the fore the symbiotic relationship between the health of soil, animals, and humans. He also serves Local Land Services as the Regional Agricultural Landcare Facilitator.
