The Rural Woman Podcast Episode 144 – Holistic Management 101 with Deanne Chuiko

Holistic Management 101 with Deanne Chuiko

Deanne Chuiko ranches along with her husband John, and their children Matt and Rylee. CJ Ranching is located North of St. Walburg, Saskatchewan. They run a cow-calf and long yearling operation along the Bronson forest, working as close to mother nature as they can.

Deanne is an equal partner in the decision-making process and day-to-day operations of their ranch. They manage their business using the Holistic Management framework to make financially, environmentally & socially sound decisions with a strong emphasis on forage management and planned grazing. CJ Ranching is VBP+ Certified and they market their yearlings through EU, Natural and Grassfed programs.

Part of their Holistic goal states that they have committed to being lifelong learners and value being open-minded. And, there always seems to be an opportunity to learn new things on the ranch. From taking the time to dig in the soil to learning how to butcher a chicken. Even if it makes her uncomfortable, Deanne understands how learning new things, leads to personal growth and a better quality of life.

AGI Storm FX
AGI Storm FX takes the guesswork out of seed treating.

Building on the success of previous models, the key functions of the AGI STORM FX have been refined through consultation with our current users. The AGI STORM FX has been engineered for accuracy, flexibility and mobility, gentle seed handling and easy clean-out, all while reducing user exposure.

Unlike other seed treaters, the AGI STORM FX accurately measures untreated seed directly from the bin, precisely meters and applies the seed treatment, gently mixes the seed for consistent, even coverage and then transfers the treated seed into the truck, ready to plant. The simplified process provided by the AGI STORM FX reduces user exposure, making in-the-yard seed treating safe, simple and convenient while giving you total control over the seed treating process.
