Questions and answers with Shane New regarding their regenerative agricultural journey and why they're looking forward to hosting a Soil Health Academy School.

1.  One of the biggest reasons for hosting a school, was to show how Regenerative Ag practices have changed our operation.  That implementing the principles will work.  We are reducing cost, stacking enterprises on our acreage and loving what we do.

2.  I'm excited to see almost weekly the diversity expand.  We continually find new plant species in our grasslands and expanding.  The amount of beneficial predators is becoming very abundant on our landscape.  I visit other operations around me and won't see the diversity or amount that's on our operation.  The Compounding effect keeps growing.

3.  Confidence and knowledge.  Most producers do things for a peace of mind and are not comfortable changing.  The academy not only explains things there is the hands on experience that students enjoy.  

4  We now can find time to work on marketing.  Its nice to see that now I have time to do what I want.   I'm also looking at ways to maximize the profit or value added aspect.  I also call it Freedom

5.  Everyone can make excuses of why that can't do things.  This school gets rid of the excuses.  If your sick and tired of being sick and tired then don't miss the opportunity.
