For the future, CLO intends to finance its restoration work through diversified activities. Using its now improved resources in a sustainable way, CLO will carry the following activities:
Sustainable Ranching – The cattle are used as a tool: the hoof action breaks the soil’s crust, manure adds nutrients and the cows’ saliva while eating stimulates plant growth. In order to prevent overgrazing, the cattle are moved 4 times a day and each grazed section rests for two rainy season. Many areas of the ranch are kept for wildlife only.
Growing Native Grasses for Seeds – sources of native grasses in Mexico are difficult to find and many exotics are replacing the native grasses. CLO is farming native grasses for sale and for its own restoration work.
