Back to Your Roots Western Canadian
Annual Producers Conference 2012

At Back To Your Roots we provide consumers with access
to environmentally friendly products that address soil
problems and facilitate sustainable farming practices.
With a focus on proper soil analysis and evaluation, our
goal is to assist producers to identify the underlying
causes of the soil problems and develop an understanding
of how to correct these problems.

Glen Rabenberg is president and CEO of Soil Works LLC. He was raised in Bancroft, South Dakota, where he still maintains his
third-generation family farm. He holds degrees in animal science, general agriculture and agriculture economics. After graduating
from college, Rabenberg worked in the animal pharmaceutical business, where he learned that many of the diseases he saw were
the result of nutrient-poor grain and forage that the animals were consuming. The conventional system of "reacting to the symp-
toms instead of correcting the cause" led Rabenberg to extensive research of soil, and the production of Genesis Soil Rite Calci-
um. Genesis Soil Rite Calcium is currently sold throughout the U.S., and internationally. Rabenberg has spent extensive years
researching soil and plant nutrition. Combined with additional information learned from William Albrecht, Dr. Carey Reams, Dr.
Millhouse, and many other contributors, Rabenberg aims to "bring soil back to the way nature intended."

Jim Burnett was born and raised on a farm in the Texas He graduated from Texas Tech University in 1971 with a BS in
Animal Science. Six years later he earned an MS degree in ruminant nutrition. His thesis topic was on the use of monensin
in cattle rations. Monensin is considered a natural antibiotic which is produced by bacteria and this opened the door to
microbiology for him. In 1994 he began working with natural amendments to correct imbalances in the soil. Through
exposure to the works of Dr. William Albright and Dr. Carey Reams, along with practical experience, he has been able to
expand his knowledge and continue to manufacture products that help growers balance their soil and grow crops more
sustainably and use water more efficiently. Jim has concentrated his efforts in developing products that have a positive
effect on the life and dynamics of the soil. Jim feels he is very blessed to be involved in this industry and looks forward to
going to work each day.
