Dave Scott graduated with a B.S. in Dairy Production from Washington State University. After working for five years as a dairy herdsman, Dave and his wife Jenny, milked 50 Jersey and Guernsey cows on intensively grazed pasture in Montana for 21 years. In 2003, they switched to grazing 200 ewes and their lambs on the same 30 irrigated acres. For the past five years, Dave and Jenny have concentrated on controlling internal parasites and reducing commercial fertilization inputs through grazing strategies. Their company, Montana Highland Lamb, markets 90 percent of its lamb crop direct to the consumer. Dave is a retired livestock specialist for the National Center for Appropriate Technology and its ATTRA Program. He contributed practical how-to publications and videos for the sustainable farmer and rancher. Implementing strategic grazing practices to build soil, increase forage production, reduce parasite infestation, and lessen inputs were topics that Dave concentrated on.
