Yeah, I hope we can get the BS side of it demystified fairly quickly, a lot of folk can make posting a letter look like launching a boat IMO and a lot of the "labelling" doesn't help anyone much.
Much of the terminology used is really helpful though, still similar but helps us look at things in what I would call a 'better' way.
There isnt really much bs. Its all down to how you interpret it. The word Holistic has implications but think. Whole-istic management and think of it as a structured decision making tool and it is a lot more comfortable to understand.
We make the decisions. We consider the implications of the decisions from a few angles (more wholly as it were) and then we review our decision within the context if that. Savory (my interpretation) has used this toolkit to make grazing decisions and generally it appears to pay off but it is imperfect. Hes influenced a lot by Vosiin and Smuts. You can add your own layers to it as well as you need to make it work for you financially and socially and for your patch of land.
