Description: By adopting good grazing practices, you can increase grass productivity, profits, stocking rates, and crop yields; improve livestock health; increase biodiversity; and even mitigate flood, drought, and climate change.
Manage livestock grazing so that animals stay healthy and productive whilst increasing the biological capital that will sustain your livelihood for generations to come. Good grazing increases plant density and biodiversity, whilst eliminating the need for costly inputs.
Develop a grazing plan for your farm that takes into account the many variables that are commonly left out of grazing planning, such as: erratic weather, different types or classes of livestock, grazing through croplands, orchards, vineyards, wildlife needs, and family needs (such as holidays), and much more.
