Holistic management was devised by Allan Savory, a white farmer who as a
young man fought in the Rhodesian civil war against Robert Mugabe's
forces. Spending long periods in the bush, Savory noticed that grazing
animals bunched up tightly and moved rapidly from place to place as a
defence against predators. This meant that grasses were eaten down
severely over a brief period, but then left for a long time to recover.
